Hello! I'm Shay and this is my fourth year at the University of Alaska Fairbanks. As a senior in high school I decided to challenge myself by going to college through the AHEAD (Alaska Higher Education Admission Decision) program here at UAF; thus began my wonderful relationship with this school. I love the endless opportunities for students of UAF and the feeling that anything is possible if you put yourself out there and utilize those opportunities. The faculty and professors aim to inspire, and for me, they continue to achieve just that. I will be happy to answer any questions you have about UAF, looking forward to hearing from you! Go Nanooks!
