    Summer classes started Monday at the University of Alaska Southeast

    UAS's Katie Bausler with more, "The Summer session started at the University online and on campus. There may be a few classes that still have openings so take a look at the schedule if you wanted to squeeze into a class there that is a possibility. Go to our website uas.alaska.edu."

    Katie says it felt like summer at Saturday's Community Day on the Juneau Campus, "We had a great crowd and it was absolutely gorgeous out there. I don't think I've ever felt it quite that warm. That courtyard just sort of soaks up the sun. We had the duck races, the kids with the squirt guns doing duck race, and we had some future students out there just going crazy. They loved it. The music of course was great, the bouncy houses, local vendors, some great food, and the kids getting arts awards from the chancellor on the stage in the Egan Library. They were so cute, they were shaking hands with a line of people as if they were graduating getting their certificates for participating in the All State Elementary Art Show, so it was just a great event all around."

    There are some Jazz at Classics workshops Tuesday night at UAS, "Tuesday night at 6:00 there's going to be a series of Jazz & Classics workshops in the Egan classroom wing. Jazz workshop with the presidents own marine band, Jazz Combo. A percussion workshop with Third Coast Percussion, and a piano workshop with Maximum Pakhomov."
