Each week Alaska Pacific University invites different members of its community to host it’s take-over Instagram account, @makingmovesatAKpacific, to show what a week at APU looks like through the eyes (and lens) of students, faculty, and staff. Since spring graduation, we’ve had a number of community members host the account to document their summer activities. Some stayed local, others took us through guiding in Denali and sampling fish in Homer, and one even let us come along for the ride as they cruised the Alcan.
Here are some of the highlights.
Dean of Students Ben Hahn shared that sometimes the classroom is inside … and sometimes it’s not.
