Prospective students and their families are encouraged to attend the information session in the Fine Arts Auditorium beginning at 1:30 p.m. to learn more about UACCM educational programs and services, including financial aid, counseling, tutoring and campus life.

Beginning at 2 p.m., the entire college will be open to the public with different activities going on in many departments throughout campus. Among them are a skills competition between auto collision and welding students, a car show featuring antiques and hot rods from the CC Kruzzers and the Toad Suck Car Club, student projects and displays, the Arkansas Arts Center ArtMobile, a well-head demonstration by petroleum technology students, the launch of the Community Borrower Card by the E. Allen Gordon Library, nursing SIM lab demonstrations, blood pressure checks and more! The Earle Love Child Study Center will have a make-a-puppet activity for children, and balloons and coloring books will also be dispersed. Many vendors who support UACCM’s technical programs will be on campus as well.
The Plaza at UACCM will serve snack-size samples of some of their biggest menu items, and student organizations will be set up outside The Plaza with information about the different groups. The Alumni Association will be set up outside The Plaza in the pavilion to take photos of graduates from each decade since the first class of graduates in 1964.
Guests will have the opportunity to win several door prizes, including an iPad Air donated by Follett, College House and the UACCM University Bookstore. Door prize tickets can be obtained from each department during the open house. Guests can get one ticket from each location throughout campus and enter to win any of the available door prizes.
