Welcome back to returning UAF students and welcome to new UAF students! We hope you had a great summer and are as excited as we are that you're here.  


Be sure to kick off the semester right with our Fall 2014 Blast Off! It's happening this Thursday, September 4, 2014 at 5:00pm in the Gathering Room (2nd floor of the Brooks Building).  


Meet old and new friends, connect with clubs, find out what we have planned for the semester, and eat some food! There will also be door prizes and we'll be giving away free RSS T-shirts to students!  


Hope to see you here!

Chief Andrew Isaac Health Center Registration 
To all of those that qualify for tribal health insurance:

Don't miss your chance to conveniently register for health care with Chief Andrew Isaac Health Center! A representative will be in the RSS Gathering Room to make sure that your paperwork is taken care of on September 9th and 10th from 9-4pm. Remember, you must register for Chief Andrew Isaac Health Center in order to use your tribal health care benefits in Fairbanks.

Although you can make the journey downtown and do it later, registering at RSS next week is a great idea! Do it now and you won't have to worry about getting hurt or sick and not having health insurance!
