The Office of Campus and Community Engagement hosts a variety of events and programs throughout the year! As one of the first stepping stones for involvement on campus and with peers, our goal is to provide students with opportunities to become a part of campus and educate about resources available to them in addition to forming connections. These events do not include the ones hosted by the Campus Activities Board or Lion Heart.

Welcome Week

First week of classes is jam-packed with daily events for students planned by students. CAB hosts two annual events that are a tradition for all UAFS students.

Campus Picnic & Block Party

This annual mid-day involvement fair allows for students to meet and learn about campus departments, registered student organizations, and non-profits around Fort Smith.

Spring Back Week

Coming back from Winter Break can be hard for many students. In a mirror to the fall semester, this first week of classes is scheduled with more indoor-based events for students to help get them back into the routine of classes.



February 13 - 18, 2023

Working with Alumni and UAFS Athletics, homecoming events are scheduled to allow both campus and community attendance with events throughout the week!

Alternative Spring Break

The Alternative Spring Break program at UAFS provides an opportunity for students to participate in meaningful service experiences and work collaboratively with community agencies to become active citizens. The program seeks to develop student leadership skills that guide and motivate humanitarianism and civic engagement.

NUMAS Awards Ceremony

An end-of-the-year event for Registered Student Organizations! Held to award students who have demonstrated outstanding leadership skills, student organizations who have worked to improve campus life, and advisers who have supported their organizations and made an impact on student success.
