The University of Arkansas at Little Rock will celebrate the start of the fall semester with the BBQ @Bailey annual all-campus picnic Wednesday, Sept. 13.
The tailgating-style event will be held from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the Bailey Alumni and Friends Center on the UA Little Rock campus.
Hosted by the UA Little Rock Alumni Association, the picnic is a good way for students, employees, alumni, and friends of the university to enjoy some great barbecue and fellowship.
Whole Hog Cafe will cater the event, while radio station 106.7 the Ride will broadcast live.
Students are encouraged to stop by, visit with student organizations, take a selfie with the UA Little Rock backdrop, play Baggo, and mingle with other students, alumni, faculty, and staff. The university’s pep band also will perform.
UA Little Rock supporters can sign up to join the Alumni Association to support scholarships for deserving students. Faculty and staff can join for $30 per year, and students can join for $10 per year.
BBQ @Bailey is sponsored by 106.7 the Ride, Gateway Bank, UnitedHealthcare, Whole Hog Café, the UA Little Rock Office of the Chancellor, and the Office of Alumni and Development.
