Hello all! My name is Josh Erickson, I am a sophomore student here at UAF. I hail from Roseau, Minnesota a small town in the northern most part of the state so I am no stranger to cold weather. I enjoy Fairbanks for the most part there are of course faults that we all find in a places we live but I find the good out weighs the bad. I am a student athlete which is one of the reasons I decided to come here.
I am currently studying business. I have a great deal of passion for the outdoors and hope to one day own my fishing guide service/ resort on Lake of the Woods back home! I am not the greatest at math but I am a determined person so I will find a way to get through the tough math classes. I currently help run a hockey training program with my sister where we train young aspiring athletes to be the best they can be. In doing this I have learned first hand ways to go about a business which I believe will help me down the road.
I am enrolled in this class because it is a requirement I am not the kind of kid who likes to read a lot. I enjoy reading things that are interesting in this class I hope to expand my reading skills and work on reading new material and finding new interests. The biggest thing I hope to take out of this class is learning how to write about what I read. Good luck to everyone this semester!
