University of Alaska Anchorage Reviews
Review University of Alaska Anchorage
The University of Alaska Anchorage has a beautiful, cozy campus that initially feels inviting and full of opportunities. Unfortunately, after attending UAA for some time, this idea becomes slightly tainted. Some programs feel impossibly competitive, such as the BSN of Dietetics, AAS and BSN of Nursing and BSN Physician Assistant. Some students wait years just to start these programs. If they were to travel out of state, they may be able to obtain their degree during the wait period. The Professors are usually wonderful but it is obvious that many are stressed from the University's pressure. Classes feel extremely disorganized and often information is given to students last minute. Students are often given so much out of school work that they feel as if they are teaching the lessons to themselves.
I love UAA. The student population is so diverse; I love being able to meet so many different people everyday. One thing I really appreciate about the UA class setups is that they are all discussion style. I love being able to ask questions and being encouraged to have discussions with my classmates. I feel that UAA Is determined to teach its students the importance of teamwork and effective communication in the real world. I am happy here and love my school. Plus, Alaska is stunning and provides a unique learning atmosphere that is different than anything else!
This university maintains its excellence and high standards in the engineering, science, medical, and aviation industry. They offer among the best programs in the country for these career pursuits, however, the other colleges in this university are relatively average in what the offer. For instance, one pursuing a music degree would have excellent professors who are very knowledgeable with music. Despite this, the program itself doesn't have much to offer and one would be better off working harder to gain scholarships elsewhere to improve their musicianship, etc.
