University of Alaska Fairbanks Programs and Camps
As soon as you buy a home in Fairbanks, you’ll find that a big part of the local lifestyle includes spending time outdoors and discovering the Alaskan wilderness. While there are plenty of opportunities to explore the outdoors in Fairbanks this winter, there comes a time when you’re ready to thaw out and do something inside!
As you may know, Fairbanks is home to the beautiful University of Alaska Fairbanks campus. With a variety of undergraduate and graduate programs on offer, students from all over the world come to UAF to further their educations. However, what you may not know is that UAF also has classes for adults and children. These non-degree programs are available for those who want to continue their education, explore a new field, or pick up a new hobby without the pressure of papers and exams.
For AdultsThe Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at UAF offers stimulating courses, lectures, educational travel, and special interest groups to adults over 50 in the Fairbanks area. Courses categories include, but are not limited to, computer applications, history and politics, healthy living, science and mathematics, and social studies. Special interest groups include a book club, a hiking club, a Pictionary group, and more. Additionally, The OLLI Winter Lecture Series occurs the first Fridays of December, January and February.
The University of Alaska Fairbanks offers a variety of programs for children of all ages. The Learn to Skate program at Patty Ice Arena begins on October 8th with classes offered in the afternoon and evening. Additionally, children can go swimming at the Patty Center and participate in Recreation Camp over the winter. UAF also offers educational enrichment programs to high school students including the Upward Bound Program, the AHEAD Program, TECH PREP Program, and more.
Immersing yourself in a program at UAF is the perfect way to get out of the cold this winter in Fairbanks. There are additional opportunities for both adults and children to get involved at the university, and we encourage you to reference the Programs and Camps page of the UAF website for detailed information.
