In early 2014, Verizon provided UAF a grant to fund a contest promoting sustainable living. The UAF Sustainable App Contest challenged students and employees to design and present their idea for apps to encourage energy conservation through digital tools. Mappost, designed by engineering student Erik Williams, is the first winning app to be completed and launched on Apple and Android devices.

Mappost is an easy-to-use, location-based community app designed to help students, faculty, staff and visitors discover campus activities on their smartphone. As usage of the app increases, it is expected to reduce the need for paper flyers and posters; saving energy, time and other resources.

Opportunity abounds at UAF; from being able to work on the steel bridge, to singing a cappella with a group of talented musicians, there are endless things to do. Download MapPost on your smartphone to see which events, notifications, and opportunities are happening near you. Interested in starting a chemistry study group?
