University of Alaska Anchorage Reviews
I'm a bit outdoorsy, and the trails throughout campus are really nice so perfect if that is what you are looking for! Probably not so great if that isn't what you are into. A few classes online this year thanks to covid but at least some are back to in-person unlike last year.
The social work department has old buildings, lacks seating and food options. The nursing building is beautiful, has hundreds of nice lockers, and screams "we value you!"
Social work has a tiny microwave a foot off the ground in one building, no plastic ware or napkins, situated by several vending machines. All social work buildings scream, "make do. We don't value you."
Room for improvement.
