Summer Sessions & Lifelong Learning is not just about summer; it operates throughout the year. During 2010 WINTERmester, Summer Sessions initiated a new tradition with our first WINTERmester community lecture feturing retired professor Neal Brown's presentation on the Aurora.
In 2012, Professor John Walsh presented a lecture on climate change, which brought over 150 people to the Schiable Auditorium during -45 temperatures.
In January 2013, Cory Borgeson, CEO of Golden Valley Electric Association talked about energy issues in the Interior. The lecture was widely attended and appreciated. His talk explored the challenges and opportunities our community is facing with regard to energy.

In 2013 a FREE family movie night was added to the opportunities available during WINTERmester. Over 100 Fairbanksans came out to view Arctic Son, the story of a family who spent a year building and living in a cabin in the Brooks Range. The heart-felt story of this family touched a chord in those who were there. If you missed the movie night, the film can be checked out from the Rasmuson Library.
