My UAS Experience

Going to UAS opened doors that I never even knew were there. At UAS I met new friends, achieved my goals, learned about my options, and developed knowledge related to my future career. I learned about subjects related to nursing and options to continue my education to become a registered nurse, and beyond. Becoming a certified nurse aide helped me develop skills and experience for my future studies and future job. I am very grateful for UAS and will always remember the faculty that made my experience so productive.

About Elena Toribio

It is an honor and a pleasure to nominate Elena Toribio Lamas as the UAS Health Sciences Outstanding Graduate of 2015. Among all our outstanding graduates, Elena stood out with her ability to juggle college and work. While attending UAS and achieving a high GPA, she worked one to three jobs to support herself and pay for college. One of the jobs was as a student worker for the UAS Health Sciences Department where we benefited from her excellent work and attention to detail. As a 2011-2012 graduate of JDHS, Elena Toribio Llamas came to UAS in the fall of 2012 to complete the prerequisites for application to the UAA School of Nursing; she was accepted and plans to begin her studies in the summer of 2017. Congratulations Elena!
