Welcome to UAA’s back-to-campus blog. We’ll be live for two weeks, just as all the big engines of higher education fire up for Fall 2011. The goal of our crowd-sourced blog is two-fold:
• Collectively appreciate the strength and power of this fresh new beginning.
• Share information that makes this transition easy and successful.
To that end, we have enlisted bloggers across the UAA campus. Some come from areas critical to the school year start. Some posts are contributed by student leaders. Some writers are new or returning students able to give an on-the-ground feel to the launch of Fall 2011.
