What is Roar Rewards?
The Roar Rewards is an opportunity for new UAFS students to get involved on campus as soon as they step onto campus. We have collected a list of 10 signature events that every New Lion should attend. It was hard to select just 10 as there are many great events, but we hope you enjoy this year's line up!

Who can participate in Roar Rewards?
As long as you began as a student at UAFS on January 13, 2014 or later you can take on the New Lion Challenge. You can be full time or part time, so long as you are a new student.

What's in it for me if I partake?
First, you will have a more engaged and memorable first year at UAFS. You will be more likely to develop campus ties and friends along the way. But to make it more interesting we will be giving out prizes! If you participate in 7 or more events you will get a UAFS waterbottle automatically. If you participate in ALL 10 events, you will be entered to win a kindle or similar prize. (The winner is selected on May 1st and announced on the Student Alumni Assocation Facebook page.)

How do I "participate" in events?
For most events, you just need to show up, have fun, and get your card punched (follow the steps below), but a few events will require more of you. For instance, during TAG week you will simply need to fill out a thank you card and at Lion Community Outreach Day you will have to sign up in advance as a participant. But both of these events are for a good cause and worth the extra effort!

  1. Attend a UAFS event listed below.
  2. Find the SAA member carrying the "Roar Rewards" sign.
  3. Have the SAA member punch your card.
  4. Repeat steps 1-3 for each event.

What events do I attend to take to participate in Roar Rewards?
