What music are you currently grooving to?  Passion Pit, Black Keys, Sleigh Bells, Mumford & Sons

What, if push comes to shove, is your all-time favorite album?   Neon Bible by Arcade Fire...hands down!

What was the first album you ever bought? And where did you buy it? My first CDs I bought were Sound Garden’s Superunknown & Nirvana’s Nevermind. I got them when I was in the 6th grade, while I was in Missoula, MT at the best record store ever, Rockin’ Rudy’s.

What does your Saturday night mixed tape look like? Probably a little bit of hip-hop, some Modest Mouse, Cold War Kids and  Arcade Fire.

And your Sunday morning mixed tape? If it is a lazy Sunday morning, my play list might have some reggae, a little bit of Death Cab for Cutie, and I might throw in some Johnny Cash. But if it’s a house cleaning kind of Sunday morning then something a little more upbeat like White Stripes, Interpol, or Modest Mouse.

What’s your all time favorite movie? Oh man, I have so many…but if I had to pick one, it would be one of John Cusack's first films: Better off Dead. It’s a cheesy ‘80’s movie!

Just about anywhere in the spring sunshine!

I’m all about SpringFest. I love the rugby game, the concert, and the chance to relax outside with all my friends. 

Haley Hanson

Student Assistant

What does your Saturday night mixed tape look like?

  It’s definitely going to have some Dropkick Murphys, The Clash, Bouncing Souls, and Street Dogs.

What is your favorite Nanook Tradition?

I would have to say Springfest, because a lot of the events are located outside, and it’s fun to wander around in the sun.

Top 5 favorite albums?

For various reasons and not necessarily in order:

 
1.      Harvest by Neil Young

2.      The Year of Hibernation by Youth Lagoon

3.      Ceremonials by Florence & The Machine

4.      Third Eye Blind by Third Eye Blind
5.      Cease to Begin by Band of Horses
 

Where’s your favorite place to be on campus?

Besides SAO, I would have to say The Pub, because a lot of my friends work there.

What is your favorite thing to do outside of work/school?

When I’m in Bethel, it would definitely have to be fishing, and hanging out with my parents. In Fairbanks, I would say watching live music, driving in the hills, and hanging with friends.

What is your favorite Nanook Tradition?  I’ve only had the chance to go to Starvation Gulch, but it was a blast.

When you were little what did you want to become? An architect.

Would you rather watch a movie or go outside and do something? As long as it’s not winter, I’d definitely be outside!
