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 University of Alaska Anchorage has been a good place for me to pursue my degree in Logistics and Supply Chain Management. It offers over a hundred undergraduate programs and dozens of graduate programs. Most of the professors are very helpful and try to assist their students to succeed in their classes. I am involved in one student club, the Logistics Association, which has less than ten members, but we are able to schedule several, fun activities throughout the school year. There is an exercise gym, basketball gym/volleyball court, ice skating rink, and swimming pool. Intramural sports are available for students who aren't on a college 'pro' team.
Things that could be improved:
The pay-to-park stations have given me and other students trouble. Also, they don't give you the option to pay for precise blocks of time.
The outdoor trail system is limited.
Overall, UAA is a decent school with many academic and extracurricular opportunities for students.
I like the University because they offer lots of different degree types and have a large campus with many learning and recreational resources. There is a lot that could be improved here though. I have come across a handful of teachers who I really respected and cared about their students. However there seems to be just as many if not more who were not very involved teachers. The overall administration is not always streamlined and often dealing with payments, schedules, account holds, degree questions can be a long and frustrating process.
