Journey

Building Resiliency

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 sponsors a series of activities and wellness services for students, staff, and faculty to help you cope with stress, rise to challenges, and stay healthy as you make your way through this exciting time in life.
