Student organizations host Trojan Tip-off rally
September 2, 2015 – 2:08 pm | No Comment

Food, drinks, cash prizes and more- and it was all FREE! On Aug. 18 the Office of Campus Life, Student Government Association and the University of Arkansas at Little Rock Athletic Department joined forces to host the Trojan Tip-off to jump start the 2015-2016 school year.

Hundreds of students gathered for the introduction of the University of Arkansas at Little Rock sports teams, coaches and many student organizations. Groups such as University Program Council, Sigma Lamba Kappa and the Wesley Foundation set up presentation tables to introduce the student body to their organizations, allowing students to gather more information and potentially attend the first meeting of the groups that spark their interest. Greek Life also set up tables to present themselves to the student body.

“We are working towards making UALR more of a family and letting the community know that we are here. We are letting people know that when you play one of us [sports teams], you play all of us,” says SGA Vice-President, Connor Donovan

Coaches introduced their teams to the rest of the student body and made themselves known to the crowd. Students were formally introduced to the new logo for UALR sports teams. Head Coach Chris Beard even offered students 20 dollars if they let him know when his players were not in class. Then the pep rally was underway and the crowd was bursting with excitement.

At the end of the rally and introductions students were invited to stay and attend the “Sync or Sink” lip sync contest and a karaoke competition. Members from Alpha Kappa Alpha Fraternity and Chi Omega Fraternity went head to head it the contest. Battling it out to a variety of songs, Alpha Kappa Alpha won the grand prize of $200.
