UAF Inside Out Coming in March

 Posted by Denali

You may be asking what is UAF Inside Out?  What does that even mean?  When is it?  Or should I be involved?

  UAF Inside Out gives students an insider perspective on the University of Alaska Fairbanks.  This is just not your ordinary experience: sitting in a chair and wondering if the desk could really get any smaller, staring at the board, textbook flopped open, with a notebook on the desk.  This is a way to see where a student's potential may be headed. College isn't about sitting in a desk for hours, it is about putting students' knowledge to the test and applying it.  It is about the clubs and organizations that students are involved in, the internships they attain, and job prospects after graduation. Through meeting UAF students, asking questions, and touring campus, high school students get to see what it's really like to go to UAF! (and there's some cool prizes in it, too!)

On March 14th, juniors and seniors in high school will be getting their questions answered and a small taste of what UAF has to offer.  UAF Inside Out is a free event for students to attend! Here is a link to registration: http://www.uaf.edu/admissions/visit/inside-out/register/.  The application is very simple and takes only a few minutes so I would recommend signing up today, so you are ready to go on March 14th!
