Hello everyone. I am a high school senior who is planning on attending college in Waynesburg PA next year. However after 2 years of school down here I would like to transfer to the University of Alaska Fairbanks since it would help me work my way into a location I want to live in, however not familiar with. I was wondering if anybody on here is either an alumni or is currently enrolled there to give me info on what it's like. Are there things to do there, especially in the winter months. What are the students and teachers like and I was wondering about their secondary education and history programs. Also since I want to become a history teacher I heard that the state hires more out of state teachers then it does in state. Is this true, because it is hard enough to find a job as a social studies/history teacher, I don't want to lower my odds. And if you could give me any other basic information about it like campus life, what Fairbanks in general is like, and the surrounding area. I would greatly appreciate it.
