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.
Voter Registration Project
Professor Olson’s COMM 111 students were out in full force on February 27th, 2019, helping the UAA community to be more civically involved. As part of a community-engaged class project, students created informative materials focused on the importance of young voter registration, education, and turnout in upcoming elections. They registered 37 voters in the Spring 2019 as a result of this project. Over the past three years, this project has registered nearly 600 new voters on campus!
