Information on Alaska Colleges

Acquired in 1867 from Russia, Alaska became America's largest state according to area, located in the northwest corner of North America, bordering Canada's northern boundary. This large land mass boasts some of the most pristine natural parks in the country, largely uninterrupted by human influence. These parks contain many species of plants and animals not found in the lower 48 states. Alaska has been growing, and is expected to continue, due to oil's strong influence on the local economy.

Alaska has been experiencing a 'brain drain', with many gifted students leaving the area and not returning. The state has started offering competitive scholarships to its universities to combat this, making it an attractive educational setting. The established industry is oil, with expanding fields including health care, forestry agriculture, and waste management. The state's largest employers are Providence Health Systems, Alaska Airlines, and Beyond Petroleum, with most jobs centered in the southern areas, which are home to the large cities Juneau, Fairbanks, and Anchorage. There are certainly fine education providers in Alaska for the motivated student.
