Mane Event Welcomes New Students to UAFS

The University of Arkansas - Fort Smith will host its second Mane Event new student welcome day, Friday, July 15 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Lunch included at the Lion’s Den Dining Hall, and student registration is open through July 10. Attendance is free for both students and their guests. 

At Mane Event, incoming students will learn more about campus resources, and find answers to questions about financial aid, housing, involvement, student clubs and organizations, and student support services.
