Questions & Answers

Who are the notable alumni?
1 Answer
  • Journalist George Polk, visual effects specialist Ben Grossmann, wildlife conservationist George Schaller, and naturalist Margaret Murie are among the famous people who attended UAF. Alaska’s first senator, Bob Bartlett, also graduated from the university. Athletes Chad Johnson, Cody Kunyk, Jordan Hendry, and Curtis Fraser crushed the collegiate ice game before being drafted into the National Hockey League.

    Answered by: Universities.com
What is the campus setting like?
1 Answer
  • At 2,250 acres, the UAF campus is huge! But only about 10 percent of the land actually contains academic, research, and residential buildings. This campus core sits on a ridge top with spectacular views across the Tanana Valley to the Alaska Range. The Agricultural and Forestry Experiment Station, the Georgeson Botanical Garden, and a boreal forest known as North Campus make up most of the remaining acreage. Snow covers the campus from October through March. Students looking for some indoor fun head to the Student Recreation Center to tackle one of the best climbing walls in the state.

    Answered by: Universities.com
What are the online learning and extension/adult learning opportunities?
1 Answer
  • Administration of justice, online innovation and design, security and disaster management, and business are among UAF’s online degree programs. Many of its other offerings focus on specific job-related skills, such as medical coding and applied accounting.

    Answered by: Universities.com
What are the athletic highlights?
1 Answer
  • The Nanooks compete in Division I and II of the NCAA, depending on the sport. Don’t fret over the lack of a football team – men’s ice hockey provides plenty of school spirit opportunities. And while the university fields both men’s and women’s skiing teams, competition isn’t limited to winter sports. Swimming, volleyball, basketball, and cross country attract their share of student athletes. It’s the 10-time NCAA champion rifle team, however, that has brought the school the most glory.

    Answered by: Universities.com
What are the school's academic highlights?
1 Answer
  • Students interested in the circumpolar North would be hard pressed to find a more appropriate place than UAF. The university’s location influences both the disciplines offered and the research conducted. Institutes on campus are devoted to issues such as climate change and the challenges of cold-weather engineering. Fisheries is the most popular graduate program. UAF is the only institution in the state that awards doctoral degrees. The 1.75-million-item Rasmuson Library, the largest in the state, supports the academic efforts of all students.
