UALR to host first BBQ at Bailey Sept. 14

With the arrival of a new chancellor comes a new tradition to celebrate the start of the fall semester at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock. 

The tradition of the annual Burgers at Bailey event will continue as BBQ at Bailey. Hosted by the UALR Alumni Association, the event is intended to serve UALR students, employees, alumni, and friends.  

It’s set to run from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 14, at the UALR Bailey Alumni and Friends Center on the UALR campus.

Whole Hog Café and Community Bakery will provide free barbeque and cookies, while Pepsi and Gateway Bank will provide drinks. UALR student-athletes will be on site to help serve lunch.

For the first time, the celebration will spillover onto the front lawn of Chancellor Andrew Rogerson’s home, where 106.7 The Ride will broadcast the celebration live.

Students are especially encouraged to stop by and play volleyball, Baggo, and other games provided by the UALR Office of Campus Living and mingle with other students, alumni, faculty, and staff. The university’s pep band will perform at the event that has a tailgating atmosphere.

UALR supporters can also sign up to join the UALR Alumni Association to support scholarships for deserving UALR students. Faculty and staff can join for $30 per year, and students can join for $10 per year.

BBQ at Bailey is sponsored by the Office of the Chancellor, the Division of Student Affairs, and the Office of Alumni and Development.
