  • Take a hike
    UAF's trail system is great for hiking, biking or skiing.
     
  • Get from here to there
    The Geophysical Institute Map Office in the Akasofu Building offers aurora videos, slides, interactive CD-ROMs, USGS maps, maps of state and national parks, and nautical charts.
     
  • Read a book
    UAF's Rasmuson Library is the largest library in the state with more than 1.1 million volumes.
