Seawolf Advisory!

麻将游戏赚钱On Dec. 11, our Facilities and Campus Services team was made aware of a pothole that shut down the westbound lanes of Northern Lights Boulevard between UAA Drive and Career Center Drive. It has since been upgraded to a sinkhole, and the lanes will remain closed for an undetermined amount of time while crews repair the damage. We anticipate the closure will extend through the week.

麻将游戏赚钱Finals week is a very stressful time for students. Students, please know that your professors have been made aware of the situation. Please communicate with them any delays you may experience due to this issue. We know this is an unexpected traffic challenge. Please take a deep breath. We want you to have a smooth and safe finals week.

 At UAA, we strive to involve our students in all aspects of geology. Our Geological Sciences faculty are highly motivated and excited to share both their knowledge and their passion for the geologic sciences with you. Because the University of Alaska-Anchorage is located within an active tectonic margin, the Geological Sciences Department has focused on fusing a traditional classroom/laboratory education with field work. Thus, students who enjoy working outdoors, have a strong scientific background, and are interested in earth processes will find studying geology or environmental geology at UAA intriguing and rewarding. Nowhere else in the U.S. will you find active plate tectonics, erupting volcanoes and calving glaciers-all within driving distance of North America's largest mountain and right outside UAA's front door.
