As I am sure many people are aware, when Covid-19 happened, all of my classes switched to online delivery methods. I have taken online classes before, but these were of course a little different as professors and students adjusted to a new way of teaching and learning. I would say that under the circumstances, the online classes were delivered very well. I wouldn't say that I would want to repeat the experience, but given the material and time that the professors were given to work with, they did a really good job of transitioning and making things work.

All of the professors I've had so far have been very passionate about their area of expertise and promote a positive atmosphere in their classes. This extends to the prominent number of tutors around campus who are always willing to assist students with whatever assignments they’re dealing with at the time. The only thing I would currently like to see changed is most likely beyond alteration due to the schedules of the drivers. I am currently largely reliant on the universities shuttle service for transportation around campus. Although this service is reliable in regards to weekday classes, the fact that it is unavailable on the weekends makes attending extracurricular events more difficult given my disability.
I love the size of the campus, it is just right for me. I enjoyed all of my classes and professors very much, and I would definitely recommend UAS for an incoming freshman. I just wish that it wasn't having all of the financial trouble that it is having right now. I wish we had the funds to remain a separate college from UAF and UAA. Other than that, I enjoyed my first year as a student there, and I can't wait for this next semester to start.
