Campus Life Traditions

Here at UAS, we take pride in our campus life traditions. From jumping into Auke Bay Harbor, dunking the dean, to showing our UAS spirit on Wednesdays; we are UAS proud!

Campus Kickoff - September

Campus Kickoff welcomes our returning & new students back to campus with more than 50 booths ranging from student clubs, campus partners, community organizations, nonprofits, and more! With more than 300 attendees, the Campus Kickoff is the perfect opportunity to get involved, connect with on/off-campus partners, find a job, join a club, and of course, all the freebies.

Community Feast - November

Community Feast brings together our students, faculty, staff and community of Juneau to gather in place as we immerse ourselves in the Alaska Native Traditions while enjoying a meal together.

WinterFest - February

Each February, students and Juneau community members take the annual Polar Plunge as we raise funds for local causes. Join us for a day full of adventure with a bonfire, hot tubs, live music, skating, and more winter festivities!

Spring Carnival - April

Jump into spring with fun-filled games and opportunities to win prizes at the UAS Spring Carnival! Enjoy live performances, free food, and the famous dunk tank!
