A Wild Way to Learn
UAA'S faculty find creative ways to merge class and lab work in a Northern context - learn about global warming with evidence from local lakes, gather temperature data by making smoked salmon, and take a class set in a real historic gold mine.
Gear Up for Class
Diversify your class schedule with Health, Physical Education and Recreation classes like ice climbing, winter camping and dog mushing. Need equipment? Stop by the gear room in the Student Union for gear rentals that change with the season.
Research that Makes a Difference
Researchers at UAA are learning how to grow mushrooms for insulation, uncovering secrets of human diseases by studying arctic squirrels and using 3D technology to understand and preserve Alaska Native art and artifacts.
