Meet Mikey


Home: Fairbanks, AK
Major: Undecided
Minor: Spanish

I'm Mikey, I grew up about 5 minutes from campus and started working in a student position with Career Services after graduating high school. After a year and a half I took a break from school to work, but I'm back at school and still on the hunt for a major. I currently live in a cabin without running water -- what Alaskans call a dry cabin -- just north of campus. I work for the Admissions Office while taking classes. I'm not sure what I'll end up doing, but I hope it involves art, people, and the outdoors!
