Hello everyone! My name is Kaitlyn and I am from upstate New York. I am currently a full-time student at UAF and am excited to take this course. I am quite new to geography, the only geography that I really learned in high school was where the 50 states and the countries in Europe are. This course is not a requirement in my degree, I just wanted to take it for fun. I am majoring in Philosophy right now and all that deep thinking can hurt my brain, so this course will be a nice break from that. The three places I placed on the class map are Marion, Fairbanks, and Volos, Greece. I was born in the city of Rochester, but Marion is where I grew up. Fairbanks is obviously where UAF is and Volos, Greece is where I would want to go if I had unlimited money.
