WHAT I LIKED

The faculty in the Psych program of UAA is very involved and oriented towards student success.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Because many students are from Anchorage and continue to live with parents or off-campus, there is not the stereotypical "college life" scene, and the dorms are not very lively

3.0

WHAT I LIKED

It's a decent university for in-state but I don't recommend it for out of state. It's overpriced and not that great but in Alaska, we don't have many options so it's better than nothing. Healthcare or engineering have the best programs and job prospects.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Most teachers suck and aren't fair at all but if you get a good counselor they will go to bat for you.

4.0

WHAT I LIKED

I like all of the social events that the university constantly hosts, and how flexible and understanding my professors and advisors are.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

I'm not too fond of the university's portal to find their local scholarships; in my opinion, it's too confusing to navigate.

5.0

WHAT I LIKED

I have been very impressed with most areas of UAA, but the advising department has been absolutely outstanding. I am returning to school after 10 years of being out of it, and have never once felt lost.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

I wish there were more of a "College Experience" like you'd receive from more prominent universities.
