The University of Arkansas at Little Rock will celebrate its employees with free tickets and concession dollars during Campus Night at the men’s basketball game Thursday, March 7.
All UA Little Rock faculty and staff members will receive two free tickets courtesy of the Little Rock Athletic Department to watch the Trojans battle the Louisiana Ragin’ Cajuns at 6:30 p.m. March 7 in the Jack Stephens Center. UA Little Rock offices and departments can request block tickets so groups can enjoy the game together.
The first 500 faculty and staff members to arrive also will receive $6 in Chancellor Bucks, courtesy of Chancellor Andrew Rogerson, to be used for concession purchases. The Chancellor Bucks will be available at the chancellor’s table near the Jack Stephens Center entrance.
All UA Little Rock students can get into the game for free with their student ID and will receive a free hot dog or popcorn and drink.
“Athletics is excited to partner with our campus community to present our first Campus Night in conjunction with our upcoming basketball game on March 7,” said Chasse Conque, vice chancellor and director of athletics. “This will be a special night where we celebrate our faculty, staff, and students that make our university special. We hope all Trojans will join us for a fun night as we salute our campus community and together cheer on Little Rock’s Team!”
