Summer 2014 Inside Out!

Sometimes the process of getting to know colleges and figuring out which school is "the one" can feel like an impossible task. Especially on top of a high school student's already busy schedule! However, UAF provides a fun-filled day of tours and activities, aimed at helping to answer to your toughest college questions. Discover UAF: Inside Out is a great way to get to know the UAF campus and our admissions process. By attending Inside Out, students get to meet staff and faculty from all over campus, and will be guided through the necessary steps to apply and enroll as a UAF student. This is also a family event, so bring your parents because we will have information and activities just for them!

This free event is happening Friday, June 27th, 2014 from 8:00 am to 3:15 pm! Be sure to register in advance! Registration closes Monday, June 23rd at 1:00pm.
