College Fjord

College Fjord is a fjord located in the Prince William Sound in Alaska, USA, about 100 miles east of Anchorage. It is part of the Chugach National Forest and is a popular destination for visitors and locals alike. The fjord is approximately 10 miles long and features five large glaciers, which are the Harvard, Yale, Vassar, Wellesley, and Smith Glaciers.

The area is known for its stunning beauty and wildlife. The fjord is surrounded by snow-capped mountains and lush green forests, and the water is often filled with seals, sea lions, and whales. The area is also home to a variety of birds, including bald eagles, cormorants, and puffins.

In 1964, the area was designated as part of the Chugach National Forest, and in 1980, it was included in the Prince William Sound-College Fjord Wilderness Area. The area is now protected and managed by the US Forest Service.
