Spike would like to remind the UAS community that Freshman and Transfer Orientation is Aug. 29- Sept. 1.

Spike lowered into position for his base fitting

Arete Construction crews gave Spike Whale a personal orientation to his new home overlooking the new pedestrian corridor on the Auke Lake campus the morning of Friday, Aug. 23. The 8 foot tall, 1600 pound sculpture by artist Skip Wallen is a smaller replica of 26 foot work of art planned for the Juneau Waterfront. The 1/3 life sized model of a humpback whale resided in front of the Juneau Arts and Culture Center the past 22 months. A shadow of his larger relative painted  on the JACC building by UAS Art Faculty Pedar Dalthorp is all that remains. Spike would like to remind the UAS community that Freshman and Transfer Orientation is Thurs. Aug. 29-Sat.Sept. 1 with a Whale Watching cruise on Saturday!. See the full schedule on the orientation website.
