Wilderness Welcome 

New to UAF? Join us on the Wilderness Welcome Orientation Trips just before traditional new student orientation begins.  These four day wilderness trips are an awesome way to begin your time here at UAF.  You will meet other new students who also want to get out and enjoy Alaska.  Over the years many students who participated in Wilderness Welcome are still friends with the people they meet during this fun filled program.

Outdoor Adventures Living Learning Community

The Outdoor Adventure's LLC brings together students with similar identities, values or needs. We have staff who support your experience within the residence halls and at the Outdoor Adventures office.  A successful first year of college looks different for every student, so we offer programs to appeal to a diverse set of interests and structure them so students are given opportunities to adjust to UAF academically as well as socially.
