University of Alaska Anchorage Reviews
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.
UAA is a very close-knitted community and it's likely that people will now each other. There are also many international students coming from different parts of the world. Student life is active in recruiting locals and hosting events but sometimes these events aren't promoted enough for people to know about them. For the most part, the campus is structured in a way that you can access or get access to most buildings, this is especially nice in the winter times so you don't have to walk far distances in the cold. Safety is taken very seriously and overall, it's a welcoming university.
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.
