The Office of Student Activities provides many different opportunities for students to get involved on campus. The main goal of the Office of Student Activities is to provide students with educational, cultural and social programs. All of our programs are planned and implemented by students. The Office of Student Activities is responsible for the following areas:
University Programs (UP) is a volunteer student organization responsible for coordinating and planning over 200 events annually for the campus community. University Programs provides UA students with cultural, educational, recreational, and entertainment experiences. Eight committees along with committee chairs and their executive officers select, schedule, and produce events such as concerts, movies, lectures, fine arts performances, and gallery exhibits. University Programs provides excellent opportunities to develop leadership skills and to gain practical experience in a variety of areas. Supported by an activity fee instituted in 1988 in return the majority of the events are free to the student body.
Headliner Concerts Committee (HCC), which is composed primarily of students, gets to make the decision on what big-name artist to bring to campus each year. Because you have already paid a per-credit-hour fee to support this committee, when concert day arrives there is NO admission fee for students. Over the last three years the committee brought Grammy winning artists John Mayer, Foo Fighters and rapper T.I., among others, to Barnhill Arena.
Distinguished Lectures Committee (DLC) decides which dynamic and pertinent speakers to bring to the University of Arkansas campus. These speaking engagements are completely free to all students. Some of the speakers brought over the past few years have been President George H.W. Bush, CNN anchor Anderson Cooper, basketball icon Magic Johnson, and author Malcolm Gladwell.
Associated Student Government
The Associated Student Government shall act as an organized voice for all students of the University of Arkansas, to effectively represent students in the University's decision and policy making process and to provide a broad educational experience for students, while promoting citizenship on campus and in the greater community. In doing so, ASG knowingly and responsibly recognizes the students' roles in the shared governance of the University of Arkansas.
