Driving in the Snow

Driving in the snow can be tricky and living in Alaska it is important to know how to do so safely. Is your car ready for the snow? Here are a couple of things that you can do to get your car ready.

  • Ensuring that your car is up to date with its maintenance schedule. This includes tire rotation, winter tires, and oil changes.
  • Using the VIN number of the vehicle to look up any safety issues or recalls.
  • Having the right tire pressure for the vehicle.

Finals week. It is a stressful time.

**Hours during Finals Week**

It is best to tackle it with a game plan. Make sure to:

  1. Get your meals in. You can’t run a car on an empty tank.
  2. Water intake. With already being stressed as it is with finals week, being dehydrated is not going to help. Make sure that you carry around your water bottle. There are various water fountain refill locations around campus.
  3. Take breaks. Overdoing it is not good. Taking a break to “reset” can help in clearing your head and getting ready for round 2!
  4. Get in some type of fresh air and sunlight. I know, sunlight in Alaska? But take advantage of the sunlight when you can. Putting a happy light close to you can be helpful.
  5. When in doubt, ask for help!!! Finals week is a hectic time, and we at UAA are here to help!
