April 18-20, 2019
The tradition of All Campus Day dates back to the late 1950's. The tradition is an inseparable mix of both "the day" and the events that go with that day. The earliest cited mention is in the 1958-1959 'A' Book. Listed as a day "...that classes are dismissed and the whole campus gets out..." for a variety of activities - recreational, social and service oriented. While the name has changed - All Campus Day has become Meltdown and now SpringFest weekend; overriding the theme of the weekend has not changed at all. It is a day that our students use for rest and relaxation in a variety of ways. Like many traditions, SpringFest has been woven into the fabric of UAF culture.
Fast Fact: The ever popular Mud Volleyball started as Mud Hockey in the late 1950's.
Fast Fact: Faculty asked for the all campus day to make sure students had the proper rest in order to get the best grade possible during finals.
