Faces of springfest- What is your favorite part?

Students celebrate warmer weather

Students wearing shorts, bright colors and big sunglasses celebrated warmer weather at the SpringFest kick off barbeque. Along with the traditional watermelon drop, students competed in a dance off Thursday morning while others watched basking in the sunshine.


SpringFest Service creates a cleaner, nicer campus



    The UAF Tradition even older than SpringFest is campus clean up. It occurs Friday morning before the celebration type events occur. Now SpringFest weekend includes SpringFest Service run by the UAF Leadership Involvement Volunteer Expierence (LIVE) office. This year students worked in groups on several projects around campus.


Hawaiin breeze stirs up Springfest weekend

The University of Alaska Fairbanks Office of Multicultural Affairs and Diversity hosted three days of free public events April 26 – 28. The music and dance celebration took place on April 28th.

Let's feel the love, peace, and harmony through their dance waves. Aloha!


Mud volleyball brings out a crowd

Everyone loves to get dirty. Games are stalled as teams wrestle in the mud while viewers  of the tournament dodge mud in the splash zone.


SpringFest brings musical delights

One of the most attended events of the weekend is the annual SpringFest Concert.
