the art dept at uaf has inproved a lot since i started was all landscaped life based work, now its getting a more experimental and the standereds have gone, up, i think…

it still has a way to go, but the new faculty they hired make a big difference. they let me do pretty much whatever i wanted and pushed me pretty hard (but not as hard as i pushed myself)

the school is certainly not the bestfor art (though for the sciences its one of the top in the country)but has somethings going for it if you are interested:

1=nice and cheap (one of thecheapest!)

2=because its so cheap you can affored to do funthings like student exchanges-I did two years, it was great!

3+ like anywhere else, success is mostly a matter of your self motivation…I wrote independent studies, etc,.. i feel like i got a lot out of my degree.fairbanks is an ugly city in the first immpression, but the art community is very strong for such a small town and the wilderness cant be beat!
