Arlo Davis


Admissions Counselor

Territories: Alaska - Rural and Southeast


Arlo joined the admissions team in fall 2018. Growing up in Nome and Selawik, Arlo first discovered UAF in 2003 when he thought he was going to be a civil engineer and Snowcat wheels were still the cutting-edge winter bike accessory.

In 2016, Arlo graduated from the University of Alaska Anchorage with a bachelor's in English and is currently pursuing a master's degree in Arctic policy at UAF. During his undergraduate, Arlo learned the basics of rhetoric and debate from the UAA debate team and competed in four Cabin Fever debates.

He minored in dance and held a solo performance during the year-end recital in which he rocked authentic Japanese clothing, a full face bike helmet and sunglasses. He danced to a soundscape of crunchy electronic music and Tuvan throat singing.

After taking a detour through Sitka to Azerbaijan and Morocco, performing many different jobs along the way, Arlo arrived back in Fairbanks. Fairbanks has given Arlo a knack for occupying the space between urban and rural Alaska, which he hopes will help him in his role as the UAF rural and southeast admissions counselor.
