Meet Jason


Home: Kandy, Sri Lanka
Major: business administration

Hi, my name is Jason and I'm an international student here at UAF. I came to UAF because the petroleum engineering program here is one of the best in the world and because Fairbanks is very different from Sri Lanka, where I am from. This is my second year at UAF. I live on campus and play on an intramural volleyball team.
