Student Ambassadors represent the university as official hosts at alumni and donor events. The program provides students the opportunity to:

  Talk and visit with professionals who were
      once students in their shoes

  Ask questions and learn about a specific
       field of study

  Be visible and enthusiastic campus leaders

  Learn important interpersonal skills while gaining
      professional experiences
Alumni events include:

Alumni Weekend  (August 18-20, 2017) is the time when graduates reunite every five years, beginning with their tenth year. The reunion includes five events within a weekend. During this time, students build stronger connections to the institution through interaction with alumni.

Special alumni events provide alumni the opportunity to renew friendships and maintain interest in UAMS. Students will get immeasurable value from their involvement with alumni during these upcoming events:

•  The Joint Comedy Club: October '17
  Arkansas Repertory Theatre: December '17
  Crystal Bridges Museum: March '18
  Dickey-Stephen’s Park: May '18
  Arvest Ballpark: June '18

Check back with us for further event details.
Donor events include:

Investiture ceremonies occur throughout the year when a faculty member is invested into an endowed chair. An endowed chair is among the highest academic honors a university can bestow on a faculty member and is established with gifts of at least $1 million, which are invested to support the activities of the chair holder.

Julep Cup Jaunt  (May 5, 2018) hosted by the UAMS Consortium, is a Kentucky Derby watch party and silent auction. Proceeds support the UAMS neonatal intensive care unit, the Mom & Baby Wing Renovation Project and the fundraising efforts of the UAMS Consortium.
