The art professors at UAA have once more donned their critic’s caps, and the students they’ve deemed worthy are currently being showcased in the Student Union Gallery’s annual 3D Invitational.
Unlike like in Claybody earlier this semester, where professors selected student works done (at least in part) with clay and ceramics, the 3D Art Invitational is open to any student work that falls under the category of three dimensional, from pottery, to sculptures, lighting fixtures and jewelry.
Students from all over UAA varying in age, nationality, and even gender participated in the 2012 Beard and Stache competition. Participants worked for months growing, designing, crafting, and creating their beard and stache creations to compete in the various categories and take home the ultimate prize: fame and admiration by all!

The Seawolves took on the Nanooks this weekend, beating them 3-2 Friday night but failing 3-1 in Fairbanks Saturday night.
In their Feb. 24 game, UAA started off slow but came forward with a barrage of shots in the second period. UAF was unable to stop their attacks, only scoring once more in the third period. After traveling to Fairbanks the Seawolves played Sat. 25 in the second Governor’s Cup game.
Though the North Dakota Fighting Sioux may have skated off with the 2010 Kendall Classic title, the UAA Seawolves were by far and away the surprise of the tournament. The Seawolves used a dramatic comeback to forge a 5-5 tie with UND on Oct. 8. After the game was 1-1 midway through the first period,…
If motivation comes after action, then the Seawolf volleyball team should be motivated now. Freshman players got a taste of their first competition in their second- annual scrimmage against the Seawolf alumni on Aug. 22. In past years, the team only scrimmaged among themselves before the first game of the season. But by having actual opponents, the preparations seem much more real.
“It was just the alumni, but like I said, it’s new faces on the other side of the net. So that’s nice,” Assistant Coach Nicky Rose said.
It’s part of a tradition that keeps freshman players motivated. Seawolf players have won against their predecessors in all five games so far.
UAA volleyball will hold this event again next year as a part of welcome week for the same admission price: free.
