Begin Your Path to Tradition Keeper Status

Arkansas Tech University students can demonstrate their affection for their university by participating in a program offered through the ATU Student Alumni Association.

The Tradition Keeper program recognizes students who demonstrate extraordinary campus involvement while completing their degrees at Arkansas Tech.

Tradition Keeper activities include having a photo made with campus ambassador Jerry the Bulldog, attending athletics events, participating in a campus blood drive, attending a career fair and many others.

Documentation of each tradition upheld is made through the “Arkansas Tech Traditions” app, which is available for download at the App Store and Google Play.

Students who attain Tradition Keeper status by completing 36 Tech traditions wear special green cords at commencement ceremonies and earn the distinction of Tradition Keeper on their official Arkansas Tech transcripts.
