The University of Arkansas at Little Rock will host Alumni Night Saturday, Aug. 27, at Dickey-Stephens Park.
For $10, UALR alumni and friends can enjoy an all-you-can-eat picnic and a night at the ballpark to watch the final Arkansas Travelers home game of the season.
All UALR alumni, friends, family, faculty, and staff are invited to watch the Arkansas Travelers battle the Northwest Arkansas Naturals.
The picnic will begin at 6:10 p.m. at the Club Car on the concourse overlooking the field, followed by the game at 7:10 p.m. The menu will include hot dogs, hamburgers, baked beans, potato chips, popcorn, soft drinks, sweet tea, and water.
UALR Alumni Night is a new event meant to strengthen connections between alumni and the university.
“During the summer, most people travel and go on vacations. Their schedules are very hectic,” said Derek Boyce, UALR Alumni Association director of annual giving and alumni membership. “We want to start a new summer tradition for alumni and their friends and families to stay connected with each other and the university.”
