Coming to Campus? You will Need Your New Wolfcard to Enter UAA Buildings.

As you return to campus, it is important that you have your new UAA Wolfcard ready to use. The new WolfCard is required to access campus facilities since the buildings are not yet broadly open to the general public. This includes facilities such as the UAA/APU Consortium Library and Seawolf Sports Complex. You can identify if you have the new chip-enabled card by checking if it has a small, blue “HID” logo on the back in the upper-left corner.

Last December UAA mailed out over 8000 new Wolfcards to students, staff, and faculty. If you received your WolfCard in the mail, it should be registered at this website: https://www.uaa.alaska.edu/Util/Apps/onguard/register-wolfcard.cshtml

If you do not have a new Wolfcard, you can obtain a new card at the Consortium Library or at the Cashiering Office in Eugene Short Hall (102). So far in 2021, the Library has issued about 1500 cards New students at UAA can get their Wolfcards starting August 2nd.

APU students, staff, and faculty: You can obtain your ID Cards from the Information Technology Help Desk in Grant Hall (111). If you have any questions, you can email them at ithelpdesk@alaskapacific.edu

The Legacy of Sadako Exhibit in Reading Room

The Legacy of Sadako
Unveiling of the Exhibit

The members of Japanese Educational Tour of Colony High School met Mr. Masahiro Sasaki on March 11th, 2017 where he shared his thoughts about peace in the world. Mr. Masahiro Sasaki is an elder brother of Miss Sadako Sasaki who is the model for “The Children’s Peace Monument” in the Peace Memorial Park in Hiroshima. After being exposed to the atomic bomb, Sadako Sasaki suffered from leukemia and died at age of 12. Since her death, Mr. Sasaki has spent his time as an advocate of the world peace movement. Mr. Sasaki donated paper cranes that were folded by Sadako-san to the National 9/11 Memorial & Museum, The Pearl Harbor Museum, and the Harry S. Truman Presidential Library and Museum in Independence, Missouri. Mr. Sasaki continues to appeal for world peace.

The members of Japanese Educational Tour of Colony High School presented a dream catcher as an Alaskan native art craft, an autographed letter from U.S. Congressman Don Young, and the flag of the United States of America that flew on Capitol Hill in Washington DC on February 11, 2017. February 11th is “National Foundation Day” in Japan. In return, Mr. Sasaki presented the Japanese Educational tour group with connected paper cranes which were folded by Mr. Sasaki. Colony High School is the first school in the world to receive one of Mr. Sasaki’s connected paper cranes. The members of the Japanese Educational Tour of Colony High School decided to donate the connected paper cranes to the UAA/APU Consortium Library as part of a permanent display which will be seen by tens of thousands of library visitors each year. The exhibit includes not only the connected paper cranes by Mr. Sasaki but hundreds of other paper cranes (Orizuru) folded by people in support of world peace.
