  • Earlier this month UAFS Volleyball standout Rachel Williams had the incredible opportunity to watch USA Volleyball win a bid to the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo.

    “Witnessing the Olympic qualifier was such a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity," Williams said. “It was so refreshing to see such an exciting game the week before volleyball preseason,” Williams beamed. “Words cannot explain how excited I am for this year’s team and the level of competition we’re facing in the Lone Star Conference.”

    This Tuesday at 6 p.m. the team will host a Blue and White Scrimmage at the Stubblefield Center, followed by an ice cream social.

  • The University of Arkansas-Fort Smith Police Department will be using leading-edge technology this fall, as part of a collaborative effort with the UAFS Unmanned Aerial Systems program.

    The unmanned aerial vehicles, commonly known as drones, will be integrated into UPD operations by officer Hunter Bruce, who recently participated in an intensive training course on UAV operations, regulations, and safety, and earned his FAA Part 107 License.

    Before every flight, Bruce runs through a complete safety scan, taking into consideration campus conditions, weather conditions, and the university's proximity to the Fort Smith Regional Airport.

    UPD hopes the drones can be used to improve maintenance response, traffic patterns, and event management.

  • Two years ago a genetic test identified a BRCA1 mutation that profoundly changed Katie Beineke’s life. As she began the devastating process of acceptance, she made the bold decision to undergo prophylactic bilateral mastectomy at age 30.

    As she healed from the physical and emotional trauma of her diagnosis and surgery, Katie found strength in doing work she’d trained for her whole life: leading, educating, and caring for others.

    As the UAFS assistant athletic director, Katie has built her career creating environments where both coaches and student-athletes can thrive, supporting them to be their best in the arena and the classroom.

    On her BRCA journey, she found an incredible, untapped power in her self and new avenues through which she can empower others.

  • 11 UAFS students began their summer immersed in the educational experience of a lifetime, traveling through Bulgaria with the UAFS Myles Friedman Honors Program.

    Steeped in the rich cultural heritage of the region, the students focused their studies on sustainable development through the lens of the Bulgarian experience since the fall of the Berlin Wall and the democratic political changes that followed.

    The group toured UNESCO World Heritage sites, protected areas, and museums; met with government officials, environmental and public health organizations, and business leaders; and learned the role each entity plays achieving sustainable development.

    “Bulgaria has shown me the importance of preserving your culture, investing in local producers, reducing your impact on the environment, appreciating nature, and so much more,” said Nicole Phillips, a junior business administration major from Houston. “I now see that, even though I am only one person, my actions can make a difference.”

  • Thanks to a collaborative effort between UAFS and Methodist Village Senior Living, some Fort Smith Alzheimer's residents can now enjoy a new variety of recreational items to improve their mental health and enrich their lives.

    The Alzheimer's Center at Methodist village strives to incorporate leading-edge memory-care research into every aspect of residents' daily lives. For many patients, the gardens, art studios, and other sensory centers help residents feel secure, anchored in a place they remember – often from their childhood.

    But for residents who hadn't spent their young lives among flowers, but operating heavy equipment and putting their hands to work, none of the facility's sensory objects seemed just right.

    So, Max Johnston and dean Ken Warden from the UAFS College of Applied Science and Technology teamed up to create 3D printed nuts and bolts.

    When the finished objects were presented to a resident known around the facility as a "fixer," their work shined.

    "He immediately gravitated toward them," said CEO Melissa Marshall Curry. "He filled his pockets with them for future objects that may need fixing. These have already been an incredible blessing to him, and will be to many others in the years to come."
