The Razorback Readership Program
Associated Student Government is the proud sponsor of the Razorback Readership Program. Started in 2006, the Readership Program is funded by the Student Activity Fee and brings USA Today, New York Times and the Northwest Arkansas Times to campus Monday through Friday. On-line editions of USA Today and the NY Times are also proved to students. The ASG Readership Chair, within the Cabinet, is the student leader responsible for the promotion of the program as well as the student who decides on locations, etc.
The ASG President’s Council Scholarship
Founded in 2010 by then ASG President Billy Fleming, the ASG President’s Council Scholarship provides financial assistance to two University of Arkansas students with demonstrated academic success and financial need. Each year, private gift support from former ASG officers fund the scholarship. Applications are released in the spring semester and are open to all University of Arkansas students. ASG alumni and the current ASG President review the applications submitted.
ASG’s Meal Donation Program
At the end of each semester, ASG partners with Chartwells and encourages students to donate a meal by giving $5 cash or FLEX to University of Arkansas community members in need. These funds are then converted to meal vouchers by Chartwell’s, and are distributed to students in need via the Division of Student Affairs.
The mission of the Safe Ride program is to provide students with a safe means of transportation from any uncomfortable or inconvenient situation. During operating hours, Safe Ride picks students up at any location within the Fayetteville city limits and transports them to their local residence. Safe Ride is a service of the University of Arkansas that is funded and supported by the Associated Student Government via the Student Activity fee and operated by the UA Transit & Parking Department with foundational oversight from the Safe Ride Committee, which is chaired by the ASG President and their Safe Ride Co-Chair Cabinet member.
Safe Ride On Campus Monday and Tuesday 10:30 pm – 1:00 am Safe Ride City Wednesday through Saturday 10:30 pm – 3:00 am
ASG’S Work It Off Program
Associated Student Government and University of Arkansas Parking and Transit partner on an initiative that allows students to perform community service to cover the costs of parking tickets incurred on campus. Students must perform at least two hours of community service after receiving a citation and will be able to apply this service to one citation per academic year. Utilizing ASG’s partnership with the Volunteer Action Center, students will log in to the VAC’s volunteer services website to facilitate this process. Upon completion of volunteer hours, students will print off these logged hours and bring them to the U of A Parking and Transit, much in the way that they would bring a check to pay off a ticket.
