Learn “Calling the Hogs,” claimed to be one of the most recognizable sports chants in all sports, complete with hand motions.
The University of Arkansas boasts one of the most unique traditions found on any campus: Senior Walk, consisting of more than five miles of sidewalks engraved with the names of more than 175,000 University of Arkansas graduates, dating back to 1876. It's the university's longest tradition, at least in terms of mileage. Senior Walk is concrete proof of the university's commitment to students.
During the early history of the university, male and female students were not allowed to mingle. In those days, students sometimes left love notes tucked into crevices of a limestone rock near Old Main. As time wore on, Spoofer's Stone became a popular site for marriage proposals.
