Who We Are

There are roughly 45,000 living alumni of the University of Arkansas - Fort Smith, Westark, and Fort Smith Junior College. Most of us – about 37,000 – live in Arkansas, Oklahoma, and Texas, but the rest are scattered across all 50 states and several foreign countries. Anyone who has completed 14 credit hours or more at Westark and/or FSJC or has completed a degree at UAFS is considered an alumnus.


The UAFS Alumni Association is a non-dues-based association, which basically means you don't have to pay anything to join. In fact, you don't even have to join; you may already be a de facto member. All you have to do to take advantage of everything the Association offers – Bell Tower magazine, networking events, regional receptions, Lion Lines e-newsletter, discounted travel, this online community, and more – is to make sure we have your current email and mailing address.


The Alumni Association itself is still young. We've been making a concerted effort to serve our alumni for fewer than 10 years, so we value your input tremendously. We're doing our best to create an alumni program that will be useful, fun, and maybe even profitable for you, but the only way we can know if were succeeding is to hear from you. Never hesitate to contact us!
