Arkansas Gameday Dresses


Big Red, Boss Hog, and Tusk III are the well known mascot names of the University of Arkansas, but they are officially known as the Arkansas Razorbacks. Located in the heart of beautiful Fayetteville, the school was originally founded as the Arkansas Industrial University. Enrolling almost 24,000 students and with a staff of close to 4,000 members, the college is busting at the seams with students and is continuing to grown each year.

In 1871, the university was started on a place called "The Hill" because of its location on a hilltop that was looking over the Ozark Mountains. In 1872, classes officially began on January 22. One of the first buildings to be erected was "Old Main." Completed in 1875, "Old Main" was the location of many of the instructional classrooms and some of the administrative offices. It was built as a replica of a similar building that was on the campus of the University of Illinois, but the one in Illinois has since burnt down. "Old Main" still stands today and includes a bell tower, a clock tower, classrooms, the Giffels Auditorium, offices, and a few historic displays. The clock towers chimes on the hour every hour but at 5pm, the clock chimes the Alma Mater. In front of "Old Main," the lawn includes many of the trees that are native to the state. Another interesting landmark at the University of Arkansas is the Senior Walk. This sidewalk is one of a kind and has all students names listed who have earned degrees from the university. It includes 2.5 miles worth of sidewalk and includes names such as J. Edgar Hoover, Bill Clinton, and Hillary Clinton.

William Fulbright College of Arts and Sciences, the Sam M. Walton College of Business, the College of Education and Health Professions, the College of Engineering, the University of Arkansas Graduate School, the School of Law, the Honors College, and the University of Arkansas Global Campus.

During football game day and other sporting events, you can normally hear the Hog Call, "Woo, Pig, Sooie!" This was started when some farmers came to a game and was "calling the hogs" during the plays and the cheer caught on. It is by far the schools most well known cheer. The Razorback Hog has not always been the mascot. Since the official colors are cardinal red and white, the Cardinal was originally the mascot. In 1910, after the students already calling the team the Razorbacks, a vote was cast to change the mascot. At home football games, the live Russian Boar is brought to be the live mascot. His name is Tusk III. Other costumed mascots include Boss Hog, Big Red, Sue E, and Pork Chop. The Arkansas Razorback Marching Band is one of the oldest in the United States because it was started in 1874 in the form of a Cadet Corps Band.
