During your visit to the University of Arkansas campus for freshman orientation, be sure to stop by the R.E.A.L. Razorbacks table in the Connections Lounge of the Union to sign up for your membership. The cost is $15 per year or $50 for four years. When you sign up, you will receive a T-shirt and stadium cup.
The Student Alumni Association, also known as Recruiting Emerging Alumni Leaders (R.E.A.L.), is a student membership program established by the Arkansas Alumni Association, created by students for students. It is designed to inspire loyalty and involvement with University of Arkansas students.
You can recoup your membership cost just by buying textbooks. R.E.A.L. members receive 5 percent off textbooks at the University Bookstore. And when purchasing Hog gear in the Razorback Shop in the Union, Northwest Arkansas Mall and the Promenade at Pinnacle Hills, you will receive a 10 percent discount. Other local merchants also offer discounts to R.E.A.L. members.
In addition, members are eligible to apply for scholarships awarded to current R.E.A.L. members and have the opportunity for campus involvement during the organization’s annual community service event.
