The University of Arkansas at Little Rock once again celebrated the start of the fall semester with the BBQ @Bailey annual all-campus picnic on Wednesday, Sept. 13.


The tailgating-style event was held from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the Bailey Alumni and Friends Center on the UA Little Rock campus.


Hosted by the UA Little Rock Alumni Association, the picnic is a way for students, employees, alumni, and friends of the university to enjoy some great barbecue and fellowship.


Whole Hog Cafe catered the event, while radio station 106.7 the Ride did a live broadcast.


Students stopped by to visit with student organizations, take a selfie with the UA Little Rock backdrop, play Baggo, and mingle with other students, alumni, faculty, and staff. The university’s pep band also performed.


UA Little Rock supporters can sign up to join the Alumni Association to support scholarships for deserving students. Faculty and staff can join for $30 per year, and students can join for $10 per year.


BBQ @Bailey was sponsored by 106.7 the Ride, Gateway Bank, UnitedHealthcare, Whole Hog Café, the UA Little Rock Office of the Chancellor, and the Office of Alumni and Development.
