INSPIRING RESULTS Active knowledge Learn and live. Stay grounded or take flight.

Whether Alaska is home or a jumping-off point, a UAF degree can take you anywhere. Some graduates stay to help Alaska grow, as leaders, builders and innovators. Others travel the world in search of a new destiny. Wherever you land, a UAF degree offers the ultimate opportunity: a chance to make a living doing what you love. So choose the path that intrigues you — you never know where it might lead. We know history majors who became teachers, business majors who do social work, and science majors who study medicine. We have alumni with Olympic medals and Academy Awards. Most importantly, we have Nanooks all over the globe rising to the top of their game and making the world a better place. See how others took their UAF degrees to new heights:


INSPIRATION. IT COMES FROM PEOPLE, PLACES AND IDEAS. UAF is a hotbed of all three — where everyone has a story to tell, where nature in its relentless grandeur brings true perspective, and where innovation reigns supreme. Venture outside the classroom, where fieldwork really is in the field — and in the forest, ocean, or any of the rugged terrain that makes up Alaska’s vast, natural laboratory. Around here, if you’re game, you’re in. Even undergrads work one-on-one with world-class faculty on advanced research. This is where theory meets practice and where hands-on experience gets its place in the sun.

Get going on your next great endeavor — discover UAF’s research opportunities:




You blaze trails. You cross boundaries. You sometimes rock the boat. Clearly, this is where you belong. The university experience is more than classes and exams. It’s about self-discovery and connecting to the world around you. UAF is a close-knit community where academic pursuits are balanced with the continuing quest for friendship, adventure and shared experiences. Coming from all 50 states and more than 45 countries, the students of UAF are constantly inventing, and reinventing, campus culture. Learn about life on campus:


INSPIRING COMMUNITY Solid ground Welcome to Nanook Nation, where extremes rule: 30 below outside in January, round-the-clock sunshine in June. Whether you’re an outdoors or indoors enthusiast, you’ll find what’s right for you. With more than 100 student organizations and clubs, there’s something for everyone. Go green with our nationally acclaimed sustainability program, become a DJ, practice karate or cook up something in culinary arts. There’s always something going on, and you’ll find all sorts of co-conspirators eager for a little distraction — in the sun, rain or snow, seven days a week.

Just be sure to do your homework, too.
