Inside Out showcases UAF’s Fairbanks campus

The UAF Admissions counselors pose with a special friend March 25 after hosting prospective future UAF students and their parents during the annual InsideOut event on the Fairbanks campus. From left to right, back to front, are Carrie Coxon, Joe Alloway, Nanook, Mary Kreta, Chris Wheeler, Lael Oldmixon and Jessica Bennett.

Nearly 200 prospective students, families and chaperones from around the state had the opportunity to ask questions about academic programs, financial aid and student life as part of the annual InsideOut event on the Fairbanks campus March 25. Inside Out takes place once in the spring, summer and fall each year.

A small group of students provided feedback of their existing perceptions of UAF in a Marketing and Communications focus group over the lunch hour.

If you know prospective students who are interested in visiting UAF, please have them contact Carrie Coxen at cdcoxen@alaska.edu or have them fill out a campus visit request form.

Birch Tapping...

Okay - so this just caught my eye and I had to put it out there.

"The University of Alaska Fairbanks will offer a birch-tapping class Saturday, April 16tPublish Posth in Palmer.
The class will run from 1 to 4 p.m. at the Matanuska Experiment Farm. All equipment will be provided and the fee is $10.
The workshop is sponsored by the UAF School of Natural Resources and Agricultural Sciences and UAF Cooperative Extension Service.
To sign up, contact Valerie Barber at 907-746-9466 or vabarber@alaska.edu." 
What I love about this posting is that this is so representative of the variety of really neat courses you can take through UAF or our extension programs. It's great to be a Nanook!
