Explore Southeast: Pick Me, Choose Me, Love Me

Who doesn’t love an old school Grey’s Anatomy reference? In our efforts to help prospective students pick, choose, and love UAS, we’re hosting our first annual EXPLORE SOUTHEAST event on April 1st and 2nd, 2016. This event will bring high school seniors from across the country to UAS to experience life in our little corner of the world. The students will stay overnight in the residence halls, dine in the Lakeside Grill, go to a comedy show at the Rec, attend faculty lectures, and get an overall feel for UAS life. There will be approximately 30 out-of-area students in attendance, in addition to students from Juneau high schools. We’ve invited students from places near and far, including Washington, Illinois, California, Kodiak, Anchorage, Arizona, Haines, Bethel, Unalakleet, and Kasigluk. This will be the first time that most of them have visited campus, and perhaps even the first time they’ve been to Alaska.
When you see these prospective students on campus, feel free to introduce yourself, welcome them to Juneau, and share your insights about UAS. Staff and faculty experiences only go so far; hearing about UAS directly from you will make a huge impact on these visiting students.
If you’d like to be directly involved with Explore Southeast, please email the recruiting team at recruiting@uas.alaska.edu . We’re looking for current students to help out as tour guides, housing hosts, club representatives, and overall friendly faces. If we play our cards right, many of these students will be UAS students next fall. So here’s to making UAS the Dr. McDreamy of universities!
