The University of Arkansas at Little Rock will celebrate the return of the campus community for the new school year with the popular BBQ @ Bailey event Friday, Oct. 14.
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. Members of the UA Little Rock community can also look forward to a special announcement about the university with Chancellor Christina Drale and Dr. Danyell Crutchfield Cummings, president of the Alumni Board of Directors, on hand to help celebrate.
“We have lots to celebrate in October, and we hope that there will be even more students on campus to join in the fun,” said Kristi Smith, senior director of alumni and development. “This is often the highlight of the fall semester, and this one will be the best one yet. I hope to see many alumni and friends at this wonderful event.”
Hosted by the UA Little Rock Alumni Association, the picnic is a wonderful way for students, employees, alumni, and friends of the university to enjoy some great barbecue, fellowship, and fun.
Whole Hog Cafe will cater the event with treats from Community Bakery. Students are encouraged to stop by, grab a free t-shirt, visit with student organizations, take a selfie with the UA Little Rock backdrop, play Baggo, and mingle with other students, alumni, faculty, and staff.
UA Little Rock supporters can sign up for the Alumni Association to support scholarships for deserving students. Faculty and staff can join for $30, and students can join for $10.
BBQ at Bailey is sponsored by the UA Little Rock Office of the Chancellor and the Office of Alumni and Development.
