Journey

Welcome to Mat-Su College!

Welcome to your Mat-Su College educational journey. There are many rewarding experiences along the path to your ultimate goal; however, there are tests along the way (and not just the ones you take in class).

Mat-Su College is sponsoring a series of activities for students, staff, and faculty this semester to help you cope with stress, rise to challenges, and stay healthy as you make your way through this exciting, and often hectic time in your life.

By joining your MSC community at Journey events this semester, you can follow Sophia, our Arctic Dragon Mascot, on the four paths for health and well-being:  

""

Awareness of good mental health for yourself and others

""

Balance between school, work, family, and self-care

""

Connection to campus, community, friends, and family

""

Off the Beaten Path invites you to expand your horizons

All Journey events are free. Just look for the Mat-Su College Arctic Dragon stamp of approval! Some events require pre-registration, so be sure to check the event before attending.

Mat-Su College Journey activities and behavioral care services are supported by a Healthy Impact Grant from the Mat-Su Health Foundation.
