Fifth Fridays are non-CE training, colloquium, social, or collegial events developed to connect the professional and student communities. Fifth Friday events occur during those months that have a fifth Friday and are hosted at either the University of Alaska Anchorage or Alaska Pacific University. Because these events are arranged and promoted by graduate students, fifth Fridays that occur on academic deadlines or during summer breaks may be rescheduled or postponed. Please contact the Alaska Psychological Association Graduate Student [AKPAGS] representatives at for more information.
