The UAA Concert Board is a student fee funded program designed to offer students an educational volunteer opportunity in the entertainment industry. In 1991, students proposed a $5 fee (the fee was increased to $10 during Spring 2009) designated to bring big name entertainment to UAA. The initiative was passed with a student referendum in 1992 and the Concert Board began having official meetings in 1993. That same year the Board presented comedian George Wallace as its first official event. Since that show, the UAA Concert Board has been working hard to bring outstanding performers to UAA and the Anchorage community. By bringing great entertainment to UAA, the Concert Board puts your student fees to work!
