Seawolf Advisory!

On Dec. 11, 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.

Summer Residency

Outside 3The Residency allows students and faculty to immerse themselves in the work of writers: reading, writing, and sharing ideas. The classes and workshops are informative, intensive, and inspirational.  Students have the opportunity to learn from every faculty member, in every genre, while discovering which mentors are best suited for their own work.  Everyone, faculty and students, gathers informally at most meals and the entire group shares several meals including the informal "graduation" ceremony.

The Residency is the exhausting and exhilarating highlight of the year.  It is during the Residency that students and faculty establish a sense of community that sustains them throughout the rest of the year.
