nior Walk is one of our most revered traditions. It is unique among American universities and is one of the most widely known University of Arkansas traditions.
There have been different accounts as to how Senior Walk began; the most common is that it was begun by the Class of 1905. A few years later, the class of 1904 added their names on the sidewalk. Each graduating class since then has had their names engraved in the walk. In 1930, slabs were placed for all of the graduating classes prior to 1904. Originally, the names were stamped by hand, but that changed in 1986 when University Physical Plant employees invented the Sand Hog, a machine designed specifically for the purpose of etching the names in Senior Walk. Senior Walk now stretches over 5 miles and contains the names of more than 140,000 UA graduates.
