Wolf Pack (Orientation) Leaders

We are excited to work with you throughout your first year at UAA! You can call on us to help you navigate the university system, learn how to get engaged on campus, or problem solve. As students, we have been there and done that. We believe it is easier to succeed when you have help, so we are here to provide that help!

We will reach out to check-in, ask if we can help. We want to ensure you are supported in your transition to college life. There are great resources and services at UAA to help you achieve academic and personal development. The Wolf Pack will point the way!
