Studying in Alaska
The decision of studying in Alaska, both as an international or study-abroad student and as a domestic student, is not an easy one. Unable to decide between a lesser variety of institutes for undergraduate, graduate, and postgraduate study, managing finances for living costs and expenditures that can be more than the typical average, surviving in the harsh climate of Alaska (if you're a non-resident), and managing studies along with extra-curricular acitivities are some of the thoughts that comes to mind when thinking about studying in Alaska.
International students make up a fair chunk of the student population in Alaska. The challenges faced by international students far outnumbers the challenges faced by resident or domestic students. The fear of coming to a different country, passing through the international application process, going through the visa procedures, making preparations to come here, meeting new people, financing your education, bearing more-than-average living costs, living in a new place, and becoming accustomed to every so often harsher climate ranges are some of the distinctive challenges that international students in Alaska face a lot of times.
Living in Alaska
Living in Alaska is a different kind of experience and is a worthwhile experience to acquire. Finding a suitable place to live, traveling to and fro from your college or university and your student accomodation, stocking food supplies so you won't have to visit market very often, cooking meals, washing dishes, doing your laundry, paying utilities, and financing your living are some challenges that come accross when you are a student. However, be assured that with passage of time, you will not find these individual challenges a challenge anymore. You will then normalize to the life in Alaska!
