Angela Rose Gastaldi: 2014 Outstanding Graduate — Marine Biology
The professors in the Natural Sciences departments have really made my time here at UAS meaningful. After attending a larger university for a couple years, where classes were in large lecture halls and my professors didn't know my name, UAS has been a great change. Small classes have made it possible to get to know my professors and class mates on a personal level, which makes for a much better learning environment. ~Angie Gastaldi
Angie was born and raised in Anchorage, AK. She originally attended college in Arizona where she studied Spanish Education for two years, but decided to come home to Alaska and change her career path by majoring in Marine Biology at UAS. She has been an outstanding leader in the classroom in the courses she has taken. She has conducted research as a student in the NSF funded Research Experiences for Undergraduates program here at UAS and presented her results at the Alaska Chapter of the American Fisheries Society meeting in Fairbanks last fall. She has been a joy to teach and work with during her time at UAS.
