Wow, what was going to school in Alaska like?If you want to go to a college and care only about academics and/or partying, then UAF wouldn't be the best choice. But lots of students and professors go to UAF because it's in Alaska, and it's location is a big part of the experience. I was never bored there. I'm not a big arts guy, but I went to more plays and symphony concerts in Fairbanks than I did while living in New York City and California. I've never even seen a U.S. Senator or Governor in person while living outside of Alaska, but at UAF it was not unusual to have the Governor or Senators come to talk to your political science class of 25 people. If you get off campus and experience the surrounding environment, you could have a fantastic few years.
