There's no better way to find out if a school is right for you than to visit in person. See the whole campus in action. Talk to students, staff and faculty. Check out the residence halls, facilities, extracurricular activities, student employment opportunities and more.

Discover UAF events

Choosing a college is a big decision. We can make it easy.

The Discover UAF open house series is an exciting opportunity to tour campus, meet faculty, staff and students, and get a glimpse of UAF life. Events are open to all; however, they are geared for high school juniors and seniors.

Most events are held from 1 - 3:30 p.m.
