Those wishing to purchase Arkansas Tech apparel will be able to visit the Arkansas Tech Bookstore location inside the stadium beginning at 5 p.m.

“I would encourage faculty and staff at Arkansas Tech to take part in the festivities as well.  Our student leaders have done a great job organizing this event, and we hope the Arkansas Tech family will show their support for all the work the students have put in,” Kevin Solomon said. Solomon is the associate dean of student success.
