Day of Giving spotlights some of the incredible student experiences, student support initiatives, and scholarships that make our university so special. It not only allows you to learn about how our institution uplifts and equips students for life after college – it allows you to personally shape their student experience, and their future.

Below you will find the 18 initiatives that are participating in this year's Day of Giving. They range from athletics teams to ensuring that UAFS continues to be the most affordable four-year university in Arkansas through scholarships like the Finish Scholarship – and everything in between.

Numa is our Lion mascot. Numa has been a fixture of UAFS since the first iteration of our university – Fort Smith Junior College.

Our university was founded in 1928. This is our way of creating a more full day while paying homage to our founding date!
