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 (Cultural Arts, Engaging Issues, Pop Culture & Concerts, Cinema & Dance, Spirit & Traditions) that are run by our 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!

1) If you could describe SAB in three words what would they be?

“Epic, exciting, & invigorating!”

2) After earning your bachelors degree from UAS you’re now working for the university full time and are pursuing a masters degree. What was it about Juneau and UAS that made you fall in love with it and want to stay?

“The environment of Southeast Alaska is what initially drew me to Juneau & the great hands-on marine biology program here at UAS. The seemingly endless hiking trails, beautiful views, a vibrant art scene, & the wonderful people of Juneau are just some of the reasons I stayed.”

3) What nocturnal animal would you be if you had to choose and why?

“A Firefly- not only would it be fascinating to see the world from a bug’s perspective but some of my fondest childhood memories involve late night lighting bug hunts.”

Campus Kickoff

Campus Kickoff welcomes new and returning students to campus and celebrates the beginning of the new academic year. Campus Kickoff facilitates students' connections with each other, student organizations, and the UAS community through festive and interactive entertainment, information, and social experiences. It features an involvement fair, food, music, games, and prizes. This year's 5th annual event will be held on September 4th from 3pm-6pm in Mourant Courtyard.

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 begins September 21st & gameplay starts September 27th, 2015. Sign up to play in the SAB office during registration week.

Polar Plunge

A group of crazy awesome Juneauites get together at the Auke Bay Harbor and jump into the freezing cold water to be invigorated & prove their ruggedness! First 50 jumpers will receive a free t-shirt! Want to volunteer? Contact SAB in February! Interested? We’ll see you at the dock!

Spring Carnival

The UAS Annual Spring Carnival is an end of the year celebration! At the end of each spring semester SAB organizes a carnival to let the students have some fun and enjoy themselves after working so hard during finals week. There will be music, food, carnival games, prizes, and even a dunk tank!
