Brittany Van Eck

Brittany Van Eck

Acting Associate Director of Residence Life

Educational Background: BA in Psychology and MS in College Counseling and Student Development
Started at UAF: 2012
Hobbies: Over the years I grew to love UAF and the tight knit community of faculty, staff, and students. After moving to Alaska I sort of fell into a really great network of people who were engaged in both the community and the greater Alaska area. While I have always loved being active, living here has introduced me to so many different methods of movement. Over the last few years I have collected my fair share of gear, and in both the winter and summer I will jump at any opportunity to experience this great state. Don't be fooled though, I am not always just riding my bike and skiing.
Favorite thing to do in Fairbanks: If you all see me in the summer it will likely be at one of the local food treasures that line College Road, chowing down on a delightful taco or gleefully eating a cinnamon bun.
