The Decision

University of Alaska Fairbanks campus

All my life I’ve had this passion about going to Alaska. I am just about to graduate with my AAS in Electrical Engineering and feel if I’m going to go, then now is the time. The original plan was to stay here in Oregon and finish up my bachelors degree at OIT until I learned that they have a pretty good school in fairbanks for the same degree. So, to kick off the journey, I applied to the University of Alaska Fairbanks (UAF). Obviously, pending acceptance, this will have a big impact on what happens next. So here goes nothin…

An interesting side note, this campus has some of the largest/best Arctic research facilities and allows students to be right there IN it all. Pretty neat!
