Social Events

Social events are an important part of the Raven's Quest Summer Institute. Besides attending daily classes and participating in job shadowing experiences, Raven's Quest participants enjoyed getting together for potlucks, gift exchanges, movies, neon bowling and hiking. Students also attended special events such as the Powwow at Eklutna and UAA ice cream socials put on by UAA's Student Activities Office.
