UPDATE: Due to inclement weather expected in the NW Arkansas area, the Honors College "Best in Show" has been cancelled. 


Join the Honors College as we celebrate our furry friends with popsicles, water and dog treats from 3-4 p.m. Thursday, April 25, in the Gearhart Courtyard. All on campus and in the community are invited to attend. Attendees planning to bring a dog must register to attend the event.

If you plan to bring your pup to campus, you must register in advance of the event; submissions will be accepted on the day of the event ONLY if you have the correct vaccination paperwork. Please note that you are required to show proof of current vaccination records at the time of registration, per university policy. Only one dog per person, please. If you do not have a UARK email address to register, please email tlmerrei@uark.edu. Proud dog parents may also enter their pups into the Best Trick and Best Costume contests to be held during the event. 

"The Best in Show is a highlight for the Honors College every year," said Chelsea Hodge, director of grants and research innovation at the Honors College. "Come show off your pup or take a break from studying for finals to pet some sweet dogs." 

Proud dog parents can enter their pup for our photo contest to win bragging rights and the title of "Cutest Pet" by filling out the registration form. Voting will begin April 23, and details can be found on the Honors College Facebook and Instagram!
