Campus departments and Registered Student Organizations active for 2022-2023 academic year 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 Friday, July 15. Potential participants must use 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 your table number.

This event traditionally is held on the third day of classes, which will be Wednesday, Aug. 24, on the Arkansas Union Mall from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. There will be plenty of free food, free swag, discounts to businesses, volunteer opportunities, games, music and much more.
