Sun Star Picks, April 5 – 12

Maybe you should crawl out of your dorm-cave and take a nature walk at Creamer’s Field at noon. They’ll teach you about the boreal forest and other stuff. I personally got really burnt out on Creamer’s Field from constant elementary school field trips, but if you’re new to Fairbanks you might find it neato. – Molly Putman / Layout Editor

Have you, like me, ever dreamt of joining the circus? Have you ever watched in bewilderment at those aerial artists twisting and turning in those sky-high silks? Well come to Ascension Rock Club tonight from 6:30 – 8 p.m. to learn how to master the art of the aerial silks.

In other news, on this day in 1864 the first camel race in America was held in Sacramento, California. So please, everyone take this time to appreciate the great sport of camel racing. And possibly plan a trip to Morocco where camel racing and camel shows are still widely celebrated at festivals nation-wide. – Lida Zakurdaew / Distribution Manager

Today is the last day to offer feedback on the candidates for UAF Chancellor! I get it, this kind of thing is extremely Not Sexy, often going ignored by the student body at large. But the fact is, whoever is selected for the job is going to be trying to fix the budget, and making hard choices about which programs to keep and which to cut. So, if you’re going to be at UAF for a while, consider making your voice heard while you can. Recordings of the candidates’ Q&A sessions, and links to the feedback forms, can be found at Make sure to have your feedback in before 5 p.m. – Spencer Tordoff / Web Editor

The GSA is hosting a Drag Show starting at 7 p.m. in the Wood Center Ballroom. Tickets are $10 for the general public and $15 for VIP tickets.  Bring some mad cash in the form of $1 bills if you want to tip the performers.  Having been to last year’s show, I can say that there are some performances worth catching.  And hey, it’s a fun way to spend a Saturday night. – Kyrie Long / Copy Editor

North Star Ballet’s Spring Gala- Les Sylphides will be in Hering Auditorium at the Lathrop High School from 2 p.m.-6 p.m. Tickets are $25 for adults, $18 for students/seniors and $10 for children. Three other pieces aside from Les Sylphides will be performed during the program, including Classical Symphony, Through Section and Four Carefree Capers. Each piece offers something a little different in music and dance styles. It would be a great way to spend your Sunday, so grab your tickets ahead of time and mark your calendars. – Sarah Manriquez / Photo Editor

Registration and fee payment for fall 2016 opens today!  Take some time this week to put together your schedule in preparation.  OR, if you’re a graduating senior like me, you can smile snarkily and wave as this date whooshes past you. 😉 – Danny Fisher / Editor-in-Chief
