From Zebras to Bacons&Everything in Between: SpringFest

...And we all know what that means! It's almost time for SpringFest!

We still have about 2 weeks until SpringFest, but I am super pumped for it already. So a brief background information on SpringFest...

SpringFest was originally called All Campus Day. This tradition dates back to the late 1950s. It's actually a lot of thanks to our past professors that we get a whole day off of classes. Professors felt that students should get a day off to fully prepare for their finals. But that wasn't the only reason. Another very important aspect of SpringFest is SpringFest Service. On All Campus Day, students participate in service projects as a way to give back to the community and UAF campus.

Over the years, the name has changed from All Campus Day to Meltdown and finally to SpringFest. As the name changed, some activities have been changed to better suit the student population. An example of that would be Mud Volleyball, which began as Mud Hockey. (Volleyball is actually one of our most popular intramural sport).

The main activities during SpringFest are Kick-Off BBQ/Dance Off, Watermelon Drop, SpringFest Service, Mud Volleyball, Concert, and Field Day. If you're interested in other programs during SpringFest follow the link below and it will take you to the full schedule.
