Traditions Keeper Program

The UAFS Traditions Keeper Program encourages participation in several activities that are core to the UAFS student experience. This effort builds more profound student experiences and later creates shared ground among alumni – even long after their student experience is over.

These experiences are tracked by points on NumaLink. Once you receive 20 points, you are eligible for a free t-shirt and once you receive 30 points, you are eligible for a free graduation cord! A member of the Student Alumni Ambassador leadership team will reach out to you with instructions on how to claim your rewards once you reach these milestones.
