Living in the Nanook Community

To those outside the state, Alaska may seem like a foreign country. To Alaskans, it’s 360 million acres of possibilities waiting to be explored.

Fairbanks, Alaska’s second-largest city, is the perfect base camp. It combines the friendliness of a small town with big-city advantages like national retail stores and a thriving arts scene. Fairbanksans come from all over Alaska, the United States and the world, and belong to a surprising range of ethnic, religious, cultural and language groups. People come to Alaska to explore and get more out of life. They come to UAF for the same reason. There’s passive learning, and then there’s active learning. Want active learning? Get it at UAF.
