A record number of students have registered to walk during Fall commencement at the University of Arkansas.
1,356 students have registered to walk during the December 15 ceremony at Bud Walton Arena.
When the U of A reinstated the fall ceremony in 2011, 700 students attended and it was held in Barnhill Arena. In 2015, the event had outgrown Barnhill and had to be moved to Walton Arena.
Each year has set a new record.
Chancellor Joseph Steinmetz will be the commencement speaker.
A total of 1,064 undergraduate, 291 graduate and one law student have registered to walk. That is 141 more students than last year.
