University of Alaska Anchorage Reviews
I am a senior in a science major and I am able to take all of my classes online. UAA offers a diverse and active online curriculum because the population of Alaska is so spread out and many people don't live near Anchorage. I have been able to take science labs online, with great results. The cost is economical and I have found my learning experience to be challenging and enjoyable. Highly recommended!
I haven't actually attended yet, as I am a freshmen going into college, however, from what I've heard it is amazing. I honestly can't wait to go there and start working towards the career I want to work in! The campus seems beautiful, and the fact that it is in Anchorage, Alaska, makes me even more excited.
Welcome to Alaska! I think school has a strong Alaska vibe to it. The classroom are mostly small. Most teacher are awesome and easy to work it. Some of the few things and that not every class is offer every semester. Administration needs be improvement and advocate for there students. Overall, this school needs a lot of improvements.
