I’m Megan Beaston. I’m a 21 year old who was born and raised in a small, middle of nowhere, town in Pennsylvania. (the GPS usually says that my address does not exist!) I have been living in Fairbanks since this past January, thanks to my husband who got stationed here for the Army. I love it here! I may be 4,000+ miles away from home, but the area reminds me so much of where I’m from. Everyone told us to be prepared for the extreme cold, but I would take this type of coldness compared to the east coast any day. It’s such a different type of cold.
This is my third semester here at UAF, if you include the summer semester. Prior to moving here, I attended Shippensburg University for three years as a middle-level education major with a concentration in math and language arts. However, UAF doesn’t have a middle-level program. Since I love math, I decided to be a math major! I’ve been thrown into a bunch of math and science classes, so taking this class will be something different! I’m really excited about not having to use a calculator for any assignments. I’m looking forward to reading material that I’m not used to.
Oh, and that’s my husband and puppy (Izzie) in the above picture! She is full of so much energy that I wish I had!
Looking forward to this semester!
