We are excited about your decision to go to college! The University of Alaska Anchorage is a great place to pursue your academic goals. Starting college does not have to be confusing and challenging. Howl Days is an orientation program, designed to help you transition to college life. We will navigate the way to college success!


Our Mission Statement

New Student Orientation facilitates the integration of new students and their families into the academic, intellectual, and social culture of the University of Alaska Anchorage in preparation for the university's educational opportunities.


Why is Orientation important?

Howl Days will afford you the opportunity to make valuable connections with UAA students, staff and faculty while getting accurate information about life at UAA. This will relieve common anxieties about starting college. New students who make these connections tend to be more successful in their transition to college, more likely to be satisfied with their college experience, achieve better grades and graduate.
