The University of Alaska Fairbanks and Colorado State University have asked 10 candidates, including five Alaska residents, to be the first students in the universities’ joint professional veterinary medicine program, which will open its doors in the fall of 2015.
Students across Alaska will soon walk on water as they explore the Pacific Ocean with one of the world’s largest maps. An outreach coordinator from the University of Alaska Fairbanks will visit elementary and middle schools in Fairbanks, Anchorage and Alaska rural communities from Nov. 11 to Dec. 12 with a map taller than a three-story building. The map will give students an interactive experience that enlivens the study of geography.
The University of Alaska Fairbanks will host a free public lecture, “Mapping the Earth’s Surface Through Remote Sensing,” Wednesday, Jan. 22, at 5:30 p.m.
