  • Stand above a salmon spawning stream in Southeast Alaska come late summer, and the sheer quantity of fish is impressive. Maneuvering through water sometimes barely higher than their gills, salmon are powerful ecosystem engineers that disturb sediment and fertilize rivers.

    This fall, a study published in Aquatic Sciences led by ACRC researchers Jason Fellman, Eran Hood, and Sonia Nagorski looked at how salmon may be changing the chemistry of streams they travel in.

  • Finals are upon us! This series showcases some finals survival strategies from UAS students!

    The Learning Center is open daily with student tutors and staff ready to help! Here students have all the tools they need to work on homework, complete projects, and collaborate with fellow students.

    Freshman Eli Faymonville spent some time with Sherry Tamone, Professor of Biology in The Learning Center to start the studying process.

    What is your best study tip?
    Eli: Stress and anxiety brings out creativity...so procrastinate! In my personal experience when I am procrastinating and I'm nervous about the deadline, crazy things come out, and it usually works out.
    Dr. Tamone: Don't push deadlines too much; it is not very good for retention of material. I would say just start early, it is like learning a language, you just have to practice, practice, practice.

    How do you prepare for finals week?
    Eli: I started weeks ago, Quizlet is great, especially for Bio.
    Dr. Tamone: Get good sleep, and get good exercise.

    How do you destress for finals week?
    Eli: Skatepark, for sure. I go to Lena point sometimes, it is beautiful just to take in nature. We don't have anything like that where I'm from.
    Dr. Tamone: I'd say go for a walk. If you're to the point where you can't retain any information, get up, close your book, and go for a walk. That goes for faculty too.

    NAME: Jessica Whitney
    MAJOR: Marine Bio

    What's your best study tip for finals week?
    I am a very visual learner, so the best way for me to study is by drawing things out! Find an open classroom with a whiteboard and take a couple hours continuously writing out definitions, drawing diagrams, and writing out concepts. Also, don’t forget to make it fun; write words in crazy fonts and doodle awesome pictures! I promise, you will remember it better!

    How do you prepare for finals week?
    I prepare for finals week by studying a little bit each day. Don’t cram at the end!

    How do you destress for finals week?
    Best way to destress for finals week for me is to take a hike! Hiking let’s me clear my mind, allowing me to start fresh when I return to studying! I recently just did the Spaulding meadows trail on my study break! Just an easy and fun hike with a great view; best part: it’s right next to campus!

    NAME: Milagro Darby
    MAJOR: Math with a Biology Minor

    What is your best study tip?
    My best study tip is to set aside a certain amount of study time for each class/final so you don't get too overwhelmed by all the studying you have to do.

    How do you prepare for finals week?
    I prepare for finals week by planning out the 2 weeks before it as well as the week itself, including my set aside studying time as well as the things I have due and test times so I for sure don't forget.

    How do you destress for Finals Week?
    I destress for finals week by going on walks to get the nervous energy out and meditating. I am also constantly telling myself that it is almost over, and to just keep pushing.

  • Faculty Friday with Richard Simpson,
    Assistant Professor of Humanities, Geography and Environmental Studies BA Coordinator

    In this series of posts, we shine a light on your UAS faculty-- learning about their college experiences, their best study tips, what they love about living in Southeast AK, and more. Check out Richard's #flashbackfriday pics from his undergrad years.

    What was your favorite undergrad experience?
    🎶My friends and I rented a small storefront and ran a cooperative record store called Wayward Council. We organized shows there, so at night when the store closed we would move the records and have punk bands from around the world play in our store. It became the primary venue in the southeast and created an expansive community that has had relevance in my life to this day.

    What is the most surprising undergrad experience you had?
    📚I went to college at the University of Florida. I doubled majored in English and Criminology—two disciplines that at the time seemed unrelated. Yet they were both vital to me and explained much about each other. And this also clearly explains why I’m teaching a class on Detective Fiction next semester.

    Did you study abroad?
    🇮🇹Not as an undergrad, but as a graduate student I studied Italian in Rome.

    What's your best study tip?
    📵Find a place to escape into your work. You want to associate good study habits with a specific location free from distraction.

    What do you love about UAS?
    💙The students do inspiring projects. They come hungry to learn and the university and faculty provide them with so many opportunities for creative coursework that can have a real impact in this city as well as around the world.

    What do you like about living in Juneau?
    💫Of course, everyone is excited about the outdoor things. But really what is amazing about Juneau is the city itself. The secret is that a small group of people can get together, work hard, and make anything happen given all the resources available and the way people support each other and want to get together. All of this means Juneau is a good place to dream big.

    What’s your favorite course to teach?
    🌎Definitely Critical Geography—it’s designed to introduce and implement methods for tackling the new challenges we face concerning the politics of urban space and the environment in the 21st century. And I'm excited to teach Intro to Literary Studies and Intro to Cultural Geography next semester. These are courses that anchor a strong foundation in their respective fields and at the same time enable ways to think differently about so many areas of study.

    What's a don't miss tip about UAS and Juneau?
    🐳The "Art of Place" workshops and lectures in the Spring are always incredibly special and should not be missed. And definitely catch the Juneau Symphony whale watching tour that heads out of Auke Bay. They like to say the live orchestra on the boat attracts the humpbacks—so I think they should do a punk version of this to see if the orcas pogo.
