Tradition at UAF
Every Tuesday is Traditions Tuesday! So wear you traditions gear proudly to spin the Prize Wheel or get spotted by Prize Patrol!
Prizes include Sweatshirts, T-shirts, snacks, swag, and more!
It's an annual celebration; a way to ease new students into campus life. At times it's a fierce competition of honor between campus dormitories. It's also a living story of the incredible odds the University has faced and overcome. It's Starvation Gulch.
Despite the dramatic changes in the celebration, no one can deny the power of an 90 year-old ceremony. Starvation Gulch is not simply the passing of knowledge to a new generation.
Starvation Gulch is UAF history.
SpringFest is our way to celebrate not only the end of the long winter, but also the warmth and our accomplishments of the year! The long weekend kicks-off with a Free BBQ! While at the BBQ, you don't want to miss the Dance-off or the Watermelon drop! Following the kick off, the weekend is packed with many more fun and exciting activities such as the SpringFest Carnival and Day of Service with SLI!
