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.
