College of Liberal Arts to host open house
The University of Alaska Fairbanks College of Liberal Arts will host its fourth annual open house event, We Are CLA, from 3-5:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 7, in the Regents' Great Hall on the Fairbanks campus.
This year’s event is geared towards undeclared, new and returning CLA students. Five participating students will receive scholarship awards worth $500 each. Students must be present to win. Scholarships are provided by CLA alumni and donors who have contributed to CLA through the UAF phonathon in the past year.
We Are CLA showcases the disciplines, research, faculty and student activities of the college, which includes more than 40 degree programs, from anthropology to English to women’s, gender and sexuality studies. Undeclared students are invited to discover the CLA experience firsthand. Academic advisors from each CLA department will be onsite to schedule advising appointments, and CLA’s many student clubs will be recruiting members.
The event will include demonstrations from every CLA department and will have degree and course information for new, returning and potential students. Liberal arts alumni are invited to reconnect with professors, alongside donors, friends and members of the Fairbanks community.
UAF representatives will have information on financial aid, student exchanges, support services, honors opportunities, undergraduate research, and leadership and volunteer work.
CLA, the largest academic unit at UAF, includes the arts, humanities, social sciences and language disciplines across 20 departments.
Refreshments will be served. The event is free and open to the public.
