I dare you to go the whole day without making that cliche Star Wars joke. Please.
Also, weekly open dance practice begins tonight at 7 p.m. at the Pioneer Park Dance Center. These practices are hosted every Wednesday or the summer by the Ballroom Dance Club of Fairbanks. Music and dance styles vary based on the wishes of the attendees. Admission is $3 which goes towards putting on dances and bringing up future instructors.

It’s time to move out and say farewell to another beautiful year at the wonderful and ever-logical UAF. Residence halls close today at noon. But don’t you worry! In the fall you can return and possibly even bring your firearms, too!
