UAF Day at the fair to feature Books from the ‘Nooks


Fairbanks, Alaska—The University of Alaska Fairbanks is sponsoring UAF Day at the Tanana Valley State Fair Tuesday, Aug. 7, 2012. Bring your UAF PolarExpress card or UAF Alumni Association membership card and receive $1 off adult fair admission.

This year, UAF is teaming up with the Fairbanks North Star Borough School District for the Books from the ‘Nooks book drive. From noon to 5 p.m., people can bring books appropriate for children and young adults to the fair on Aug. 7. For every book donated, you will receive an entry for a drawing to win four tickets to a university event. The books will be donated to first-year elementary school teachers in the district to help them establish libraries in their classrooms.

From noon to 5 p.m. on UAF Day, 18 university departments will host activities and demonstrations in two locations: Totem Square near the blue gate and the exhibit tent near the yellow gate.

Throughout the fair, visit UAF’s main booth in the Borealis Pavilion for information, class schedules, undergraduate applications and details about the upcoming semester. Admissions counselors will be available to answer questions about registering for classes and applying to degree programs.

The UAF Passport will return to the fair this year. Fairgoers can pick up a passport at any of the following seven locations: the main UAF booth in the Borealis Pavilion, Cooperative Extension, UAF Community and Technical College, UAF political science department, UA College Savings, the UAF Alumni Association burger booth, KSUA student radio and 4H. Passports must be stamped at every booth and then can be entered into a drawing to win two tickets to a variety of UAF events.
