The Alaska Airlines Student Concert Series at UAS is a collection of events hosted by the Student Activities Board (SAB). Designed to engage the Juneau community in events and activities at UAS, the series features a high level of student-driven programming and leadership. Community engagement is a direct part of the UAS mission, and indirectly impacts enrollment and the ability of UAS to deliver high-quality, high-impact programs. Alaska Airlines supports the series by providing travel vouchers for artists and educators.
Over the course of the 2018-2019 academic year SAB was able to host nine performances with over 700 students and community members in attendance. Past shows have included a drag show, a murder mystery, live bands, spoken word performances, a balloon artist, and hypnotism. The next in the series is the UAS Drag Show on October 11, 2019, which is National Coming Out Day.
