Students, faculty, staff and alumni will have the chance to make a gift to a specific area of campus during All in for Arkansas on March 29.
The University of Arkansas campus community is rallying support for the second annual All in for Arkansas global day of giving. Alumni, friends, students, faculty and staff will go "all in again" on March 29 in recognition of the university's 146th birthday and celebrate the tradition, excellence, growth, memories and pride that make the U of A so great.
