What is the SAB?
Here at the Student Activities Board we provide events that give students the opportunity to meet new people, make meaningful connections, learn something new and have fun!
SAB strives to provide a variety of high quality, engaging, and entertaining events reflective of the diverse needs and interests of our student body.
SAB is made up of committees (Pop Culture & Concerts, Cinema & Dance, Spirit & Traditions, and Collaborative Events) that are run by volunteer student members.
Any UAS student can join SAB! We invite you to come to our meetings and voice your ideas and opinions.
We look forward to seeing you there!

The 18th annual Polar Plunge will occur Feburary 6th, 2016 at 11:30am at Auke Bay Harbor, as part of UAS' Winterfest tradition. Students, staff, faculty, and community members alike gather each year to jump into the freezing cold waters of the harbor to be invigorated, prove their ruggedness, and raise money for a worthy cause! This year all proceeds will be donated to AWARE, a local domestic and sexual violence shelter and prevention/education center. Pre-registration is required. Check back soon for the online registration form. We’ll see you at the dock!

Humans vs. Zombies
Humans vs. Zombies (HvZ) is a week long game of moderated tag played at UAS once a year during the fall semester. Human players must remain vigilant and defend themselves with Nerf blasters to avoid being tagged by a growing zombie horde. More than 200 UAS students and faculty members participate in HvZ each year! Registration week, for the fall 2016 game, begins September 19th & gameplay starts September 25th, 2015. Sign up to play in the SAB office during registration week.
Activities and Housing, Student Government
I was born and raised in Valdez, Alaska and completed my Associate of Arts at Prince William Sound Community College in 2012. Shortly after that I moved to Juneau to finish my Bachelor of Liberal Arts and fell in love with the culture and environment of Southeast Alaska. As a student I worked in various positions within Student Services and Campus Life at both universities, and have known since then that I wanted to pursue a career in Student Affairs. I'm very excited for the chance to work with the students of UAS and be a part of their campus experience.
