Thousands of new incoming University of Arkansas students are invited to Donald W. Reynolds Stadium on Thursday night, Aug. 23, for the Freshman Pep Rally. The event will be broadcast live on the Division of Student Affairs Facebook page.

The pep rally begins at 9 p.m. with gates opening at 8:15 p.m. All new incoming students are invited and encouraged to attend.

"The Freshman Pep Rally gives freshmen the chance to learn all the U of A traditions: the Fight Song, the cheers, and most importantly how to correctly call the Hogs," said Trisha Blau, assistant director of programming for Student Activities. "The pep rally ends with the Class of 2022 walking onto the football field to have their picture taken in the shape of a giant 'A.'"

This event has been recognized as one of the "Best Campus Traditions" by the National Association of Campus Activities.
