This might seem a little out of place, but it was something that blew me away and especially in light of both Spitzer's announced impending resignation and the Zags entering another tournament, I found it fitting.

An Anchorage School District study of public school graduates show the top ten colleges they attended (for the 2006 class);

42.5 % U of Alaska Anchorage
2.1 U of Alaska Fairbanks
2.1 U of Idaho
2.1 Washington State
1.6 Gonzaga University
1.6 U of Montana
1.6 U of Oregon
1.2 Colorado State
1.2 Northern Arizona
.9 Colorado School of Mines

For comparison, when I first went to GU (1989), I was one of 4 students (to my knowledge) from the district. There were 8 or so the year before. Now, by these numbers that is up to around 60.

Exposure up. Reputation up. Nice.

I don't know that the numbers would be that high from Juneau, but we had a good contingency from there as well (4 in my freshman class, plus others).
