From Zebras to Bacons&Everthing in between: Wood Center

Today I'm going to take you through a quick tour of my home, Wood Center. Wood Center is the "student life" building at UAF. What I mean by that is, Wood Center is where many students can get involved with extra curricular activities. but not only that, it's one of the
more common places you'll see other students hanging out at to pass time as well.

Wood Center is located in the middle of campus, so it's really easy to access. The Wood Center has a huge lounge, where students
hangout with friends or do homework in between classes, a food court where students can get breakfast, lunch, and dinner, a games area to go bowling or play a few arcade games, the student union (ASUAF), The Pub for students 21 and over, and several offices that plan activities for students to get
involved throughout the year.

So what kind of activities are available to students you might ask. Outdoor Adventure plans activities like hiking and camping trips, rock climbing classes, and many more. they also have gear rentals. L.I.V.E. stands for Leadership, Involvement, and Volunteer Experience, and they have leadership lunches, Alternative Spring Break, an annual Leadership conference, and many more activities that will give you the opportunity to further develop your leadership skills and give back to the community. The Student Orgs office is where you can find out about clubs and organizations on campus or even create your own club! Student Activities Office is in charge of providing the students with entertainments, such as comedy shows, lectures, dances and the list goes on and on. New Student Orientation is of course the office that plans everything that happens during your freshman orientation.
I call Wood Center my home because everyone that works here is like family to me. I've been working at Wood Center for over 2 years now and it has been the best work experience I've ever had! (I'll tell you guys how you can apply for awesome campus jobs in a later blog!)
