Alumni Highlight

Kyla Stark

I was born and raised in Fairbanks. After graduating from high school, my goal was to attend college outside of Alaska. I visited several universities and worked with my parents on a budget, and had a hard time signing up for a $120,000 education. I decided to give UAF a try. I took the Introduction to Business course and was hooked!

The School of Management (SOM) is an incredibly supportive school. As a student, I felt comfortable swinging by my professors’ offices to ask questions about homework assignments, receive guidance on job interviews, or to say hello. The openness and readiness to help students is a positive trait that makes SOM one of the best schools on campus. Through my involvement with the Student Investment Fund (SIF) and the Associated Students of Business, I made great friends and had amazing opportunities.
 
After graduation, I will be working for Hitachi Consulting in Seattle, Washington as a consultant. Hitachi Consulting typically only hires Ivy League graduates. It is a testament to the quality of my education at SOM that I was able to stand on equal footing with the heavy hitters. 
 
Donor support made my educational experience possible through scholarships and backing student groups like SIF. Our support provides students with memories and experiences that will shape the rest of our lives. I hope you will join me as I come full circle and contribute to the success of future students.
