Fairbanks Summer!!

Campus from in front of my office in Signers' Hall
Today is one of my favorite days in Fairbanks - Summer Solstice - the longest day of the year. The sun rose at 2:58am this morning, and won't set until tomorrow at 12:48am - and it's light out for 24 hours around the clock. The sun is shining, and Fairbanksans are celebrating!
Fellow Admissions Counselors Carrie Coxon and Chris Wheeler both completed the 10k Midnight Sun Run, where people come out in droves to run and walk through Fairbanks under the midnight sun, often in costume!
Wherever you are, I wish you a warm, sunny, Summer Solstice (or a warm, sunny, Winter Solstice for those of you in the Southern Hemisphere!) full of joy and friendship!!
