Because of expected traffic congestion, early arrival is suggested, as it will take time to park and find a seat.

Please note that UALR is a smoke-free campus. Smoking will not be permitted in or around the Jack Stephens Center.

Fisher Court is restricted to students only.

Seating areas for guests will be clearly designated. No guests will be allowed on the arena floor. There is a special seating area in the Jack Stephens Center for guests with disabilities. To help these guests and since the number of seats are limited, early arrival is suggested. For more information, please click on the following link:

We request that guests stay for the entire ceremony. Leaving before the end of the ceremony causes disruption and disturbs those families whose students have not yet been recognized.
