The Office of Student Activities is offering two fun Welcome Weeks events to help incoming students learn about campus and the Northwest Arkansas community. Registration for both events opens at 10 a.m. on Monday, July 9.

HillFest, an information fair for students to meet campus departments and registered student organizations, is Monday, Aug. 20, on the Arkansas Union Mall from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Campus departments have a lot of fun activities planned in conjunction with the tabling opportunities, including the annual ASG Welcome Back Cookout, games, Sno-Cones, music, and much more!

Campus departments and registered student organizations active for 2018-19 are invited to register for HillFest at no cost. Those interested can visit the HillFest registration site and register beginning at 10 a.m. on Monday, July 9, using a UARK email log-in. (Please note that UARK email log-ins can only be used to register campus departments or RSOs.) You will select a table section during registration and upon submission you will receive an email with a table number.

Razorbash, an information fair for students to engage with local businesses and non-profit organizations, is Wednesday, Aug. 22, on the Arkansas Union Mall from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. There will be plenty of free food and fun as well as music hosted by KXUA.

Local businesses and community groups are invited to register for Razorbash at a cost of $125 per table. Those interested can visit the Razorbash registration site and register beginning at 10 a.m. on Monday, July 9. Off-campus businesses and non-profit organizations who have not previously logged in to the registration site will have to complete a brief registration form followed by a confirmation email. Once the email is confirmed you will be able to request your table. Please note that your first name, last name, email address, and phone number will be your log-in for future visits, so be sure to record that information. After users select a table section, the browser will open a secure payment site. Once the registration fee is paid, the user will receive an email with a table number.
