No Newswire Email From Wednesday Through Holiday Weekend

The Arkansas Newswire email will not be distributed through the Thanksgiving holiday weekend unless an emergency occurs.

University offices will be closed Thursday through Sunday with classes resuming on Monday, Nov. 27.

Newswire will resume with news about the campus on Monday, Nov. 27. To submit articles to Newswire, go to news.uark.edu/articles/submit. Student organizations promoting events that are funded through Associated Student Government appropriations should contact the Office of Student Activities at osa@uark.edu and submit articles about their events to that office first.

The Newswire email will follow a similar publishing schedule during the winter break between fall semester and spring semester.
