Seawolf Advisory!

This morning, our Facilities and Campus Services team was made aware of a pothole that shut down the westbound lanes of Northern Lights Boulevard between UAA Drive and Career Center Drive. It has since been upgraded to a sinkhole, and the lanes will remain closed for an undetermined amount of time while crews repair the damage. We anticipate the closure will extend through the week.

Finals week is a very stressful time for students. Students, please know that your professors have been made aware of the situation. Please communicate with them any delays you may experience due to this issue. We know this is an unexpected traffic challenge. Please take a deep breath. We want you to have a smooth and safe finals week.

UAA Chemistry Club

At the Seawolf Chemistry Club, we mix fun and chemistry homogeneously. If you've ever experienced a chemistry class where your professor created an awesome explosion and you wanted to learn how to do that, then this is the club for you! We meet once a month to enjoy good company, eat free food, and explore a little chemistry together.  Club members learn how to safely lead and explain hands-on chemistry activities, such as making polymeric slime or explosive CO2 volcanoes. With these activities, the club blasts into local communities in the greater Anchorage area to ignite the curiosity of young students about fields in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. Not only do Seawolf Chemistry Club members spend time gazing at screens in lecture halls, they also create controlled chaos and spark scientific wonder in and around campus.
