What is a Nanook??

The Nanook is our mascot here at UAF but a lot of people have no idea what a Nanook is. Nanook is a derivation of the Inupiaq Eskimo word for polar bear "nanuq." Pictured here is a Nanook on display in the Patty Center, our student employee Joe, and that is me in the mascot suit.
