The Alaska Airlines Center is a new amenity for UAA, for Anchorage and for Alaska

Keith Hackett calls the new Alaska Airlines Center a "communiversity" facility. He believes it will change the way the public looks at the University of Alaska, this campus, and the city of Anchorage.

 

Gymnasts moving in to the AAC

Coach Paul Stoklos has 16 student-athletes on this year's roster and they're all excited about their new home in the Alaska Airlines Center. Experts are just finishing equipment installation in the new purpose-built gymnastics practice facility this week.

 

Helping athletes heal

Injured student-athletes have, for years, gone through their rehabilitation in cramped quarters. Now, they get enhanced care at UAA's new sports medicine facility in the Alaska Airlines Center.

 

More elbow room for hockey and student recreation in WFSC

The great sports team migration to the AAC has opened up new space in the Wells Fargo for Seawolf Hockey to get comfortable at the start of their new season. Increased opportunities for student recreation are on the horizon as well.

 

Student Spotlight: Dylan Anthony

Dylan Anthony will be among the leaders for the men’s cross-country team this year. He’s one of two seniors on the squad, and a (relatively) local runner on a roster where Kenyans outnumber Alaskans 4-to-3.

 

New Varsity Sports Grill in the AAC to open Oct. 1

The Alaska Airlines Center is home to the new Varsity Sports Grill, slated to open Oct. 1. NMS Chef Matt Little Dog plans to tempt diners with full lunch and dinner menus featuring sandwiches, pizzas, salads, seafood and pasta entrées.
