Congratulations!!! You made it to Spring Break… It’s almost over! So, in light of this semester being almost over, celebration is in order. The Pub will be closing down for the full week of spring break. So they are going to get one last party in! Grab your leggings, leg warmers and neon colored leotards because its going to be an Aerobics Dance Party, y’all!!! The Pub has hired four Aerobics leaders to periodically lead people in Aerobics dance routines throughout the night and be prepared to blast those calf muscles and kill off the Pub’s last bit of beer before the break. – Sarah Manriquez / Photo Editor

There are a couple things happening around campus, but I’m sure everyone’s as eager as I am to be off of campus for a week, so why not go to Regal and watch a new movie like “Logan!”Jeremiah Malzahn / Staff Photographer

The sun is back and spring break has officially begun. If you’re not off in tropical locations like I am *evil cackle,* take this time to get outside and enjoy the warmer winter weather and the sunlight instead being stuck in a windowless classroom in Gruening like you usually are. Hit up the ski trails off of West Ridge, grab a group of friends and go sledding. You don’t have any classes this week. Enjoy it! – Erin Granger / Staff Writer

Get out of town. Leave this place. You hopefully have an entire week relatively free of responsibility, so you should take this time to go on a roadtrip, especially if you aren’t born and raised in Alaska. In the event that you are woefully trapped in this place, the SRC is doing a TRX workout class from 1-2p.m. Exercise the pain away! – Molly Putman / Layout Editor
