UAF celebrating 100 years

Written by Heather Penn

Saturday marked the 95th graduation ceremony from the University of Alaska Fairbanks.  This year also marked the 100 year anniversary.

In 1917, with only six students and one building, UAF opened its doors.  In 1922 UAF saw its first graduate with each subsquent year producing more and more.

2017 showcased almost 1400 graduates.

Congratulations to all those graduates and good luck to those waiting for their day on the stage.
