Annual Staff Celebration Picnic, 2021 Edition

Staff Senate is pleased to announce that, after a COVID-related suspension last year, the Annual Staff Celebration Picnic will take place between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. Thursday, May 20.

This year's celebration will be guided by current COVID guidelines, maintaining social distancing and protocols needed to ensure the safety of our campus community. With that in mind, the meal will be provided as a take-away box lunch provided by Chartwells, distributed at two locations on campus. Staff can participate by visiting either Gate 16 of Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium or the north terrace of the Arkansas Union. Parking will be available in Lot 44 and the Stadium Garage Parking Deck.

Please indicate your preference of location via this form.

Staff Senate is looking forward to the opportunity to show appreciation to staff, many of whom have continued to support our campus through the challenges of the past year. Thank you for everything you've done and continue to do.
