University of Alaska Anchorage Reviews
My experiences have been great at UAA. I remember when I was younger in middle school, we would have tours going to UAA. I loved most of the resources we have here. Most of the majors are all available. The chemistry department was suspended but now they're back! It only took a year for me that they changed that news. I think people here are very nice and welcoming. When you're seeking for help it's definitely there for you. Though, there are definitely things we need to fix.
The way the Professor's challenge you to reach your highest potential. Not only in academics but also in training their students and preparing them to excel beyond academia. The inviting and safe feeling the staff provides. Generous in giving of their time to assist individuals in reaching their goal. The professionalism and patience was genuine. The quality of education I've received thus far has exceeded my expectations and has helpeed me to grow in ways I did not think possible. The campus itself felt like home, it provided me with resources and the technology to perform tasks needed to meet the requirements for my classes. The work load for each class was appropriate. It is a very high functioning institution, very well kept. Overall, I've had an amazing experience and there isn't any thing I would change.
While graduate program department faculty has been fantastic, the school overall is in shambles. They can barely afford to keep to keep anything running, and they are running on a skeleton staff and faculty. Which I'll admit isn't their fault. The state of Alaska only provides them with an operational budget that covers the minimum basics. Parts of the campus are in dire need of updates, but the school can't afford to make the necessary updates. Additionally, often more money gets funnelled to UAF all in the name of it being the flagship and research insititute then UAA when UAA has a much larger student population and a great potential for research.
