Posted by Lindsey

Thinking about college? Want to see what UAF looks like from the Inside Out? Well then come join us for a fun filled day of mock classes, campus tours and all kinds of other pertinent college information. 

Here's a run down of what your day at Inside Out will look like:
Current students excited for Inside Out

8am: Check-In and Registration
Free coffee, tea, and breakfast (yes, we're feeding you!) while you register. It's also a chance to peruse the different schools and colleges UAF has. This is also a great time to meet other people and sometimes there are current UAF students around to chat with. 

8:40am: Welcome
A group of UAF's fearless leaders, including our Vice Chancellor Mike Sfraga will welcome you and tell you a little bit about our awesome university.
This awesome guy is doing some of the introduction

Learning to be dinosaurs in mock class

9:15am Students- Mock classes
You will be divided into groups based on what you think you may want to major in or if you aren't sure you can join a group that sounds interesting to you! This is a great way to get a feel for what goes on in a UAF classroom. It's super fun! Last year one class got to learn how to walk around like dinosaurs. How cool is that?!

9:15am Parents- Transitioning to College
Moms and dads all over the US and the world experience sending their kids off to college every year. The transition can be difficult for both the student and the parents. This seminar will give you some tips to help make that transition easier. :)

10:15am Walking Tours
This is arguably the best part of the whole Inside Out (in my opinion). The tours are generally led by current students.They are all excited to share their knowledge and love of UAF with you on this tour! In an hour and a half you will see most of what this campus has to offer. You will see the dorms, academic buildings, the student recreation center, and more. Make sure you wear your comfy shoes and bring a hat and gloves. It shouldn't be dreadfully cold yet, but there might be a bit of a fall chill in the air. This is a fun hour and a half full of information! Feel free to ask as many questions as you want!

11:45am- 1:45pm Build Your Own Schedule
