I've loved Alaska for as far as I can remember. It's a beautiful place(in the pictures anyways). I've read bad things about it online, but I'm looking for an adventure/change. I am interested in going to college here and I want people's opinions. I'm a night owl so the darker days won't bother me and I love the cold weather. Is it worth leaving Tennessee to live in Anchorage and go to college there? I would like to know positives as well as negatives! Thanks

Thanks^^^:) I am slightly scared to be honest. My family doesn't support anything I do. It's always "she'll never make it" "she doesn't know what she's doing". I'm a solid outcast in there eyes because I'm branching out and doing my own thing. And why ask a stranger?? Because I want a person who actually attends UAA to tell me what the college is like. that's all. Thank you though!

. Go and visit the CAMPUS.. for yourself... GET THE FEEL OF IT!!!

Asking someone HOW IS IT to ATTEND this College .PROS and CONS..??? They are gonna GIVE you their OPINION!!

It's like asking a WAITRESS... What do you RECOMMEND??

Ya need to SAMPLE the FARE yourself..YOUR OPINION IS WHAT COUNTS!!...;)

I go to UAA. Honestly, I don't know if I'd recommend relocating just for the school. Tuition is kind of high for out-of-staters. The classes are decent, not what you'd get at a t20 for your field, but definitely more rigorous than a community college. As far as clubs and organizations, the selection seems smaller than most Unis. I think there's one frat, two/three sororities, and a smeckling of student orgs.
