Senior Walk Preservation

Help unlock $500! Check out the updates tab to the right for all the details.


Senior Walk is more than just an accumulation of names etched into an endless row of concrete slabs. It is more than a placeholder of the commitment that our students have demonstrated. Senior Walk is a tradition – a tradition that is held in high esteem among all who have heard of and encountered it. Started in 1905, this tradition truly preserves the legacy of all who have been proud to call themselves a Razorback. Indeed, it is a legacy that will forever remain in our hearts and one that we hope will stand the test of time.

While Senior Walk will never fade from our minds, it has sadly begun to dull in its appearance. A landmark of the legacy of countless students is literally crumbling under our feet, and we need your support to preserve it. To many families, Senior Walk is like a priceless heirloom passed on from one generation to the next. It is our goal to ensure that such a precious tradition be restored and maintained for all of our graduates. Nothing would be more devastating than for Senior Walk to be stopped short in its tracks, leaving nothing but fragments of history behind it.

Fellow students, it’s time to join together to preserve the history of the oldest tradition at the University of Arkansas.  We are working toward not only the rejuvenation of the years already laid, but for the making of those yet to come. Help us begin this revitalization by donating today to honor your name and all those who came before you.

Senior Walk is more than a sidewalk – it’s us.

In the Beginning

Senior Walk began in 1905 with a few brave students carving their names into the sidewalk, forever leaving their legacy.


Keep it Short

While there’s a 22-character limit for each graduate’s name on Senior Walk, there’s no limit to how many times a person’s name may appear. Advanced degree, anyone?


The Sand Hog

Carving and hand stamping names into cement was fun, but tedious. To speed up the annual addition of names to Senior Walk, the Sand Hog was invented in 1986 by U of A Physical Plant employees.


The Tradition Continues

In 1930, the university added slabs for all graduating classes prior to 1905. Today, Senior Walk boasts 140 years of proud University of Arkansas graduates.


The Long Walk

As enrollment has continued to grow in recent years, adding a single year of names on Senior Walk requires approximately 500 linear feet of cement.


Founding Year

Stemming from the federal Morrill Land Grant Act, the University of Arkansas became the state's first public university in 1871.
