Class standing/years in college:
A bit about me:
I transplanted to Alaska when I was 19 to be a professional ski bum. After mastering that I decided practicing law might be a fun career so I enrolled in UAF, the greatest school in Alaska!
Why did you choose to attend UAF?
As a student who is putting themself through college, I found UAF to be a cost-effective school, that still offers the quality of a university. I also love Alaska.
What do you like best about UAF?
I like the small size of UAF. I have the opportunity to build actual relationships with the faculty. Professors treat you like a person, not just a face in a sea of students.
What do you like to do in your spare time? What extracurricular activities are you a part of?
When I am not working or studying, I enjoy relaxing with a good book or movie. I try to absorb the natural beauty of Alaska hiking and skiing and road tripping. I've been apart of multiple clubs: UAF Psychology Club, Students Who Enjoy Economic Thinking, and Students in Free Enterprize.
What is one piece of advice you would give to a prospective student interested in UAF?
Enroll in a four-year degree program your freshman year. Even if you don't know what you want to do, you can always change your major. Also bring thick wool socks.
What "field work" have you done at UAF that will help you find work in your major?
I'm presently doing research into the possible effects of curriculum on behavior.
What do you hope to do after you graduate?
Sleep more, but as I am planning on going to law school after graduation that probably won't happen...
If you could live anywhere else in the world, where would it be?
