Letters from Home

letters from home

Letters from Home invites parents, family members, and friends to write and submit a letter to their University of Arkansas student through our online submission form. From there, we format the letter, print it, and deliver it to your student during the first two weeks of school, which is typically the toughest time during the transition for your student.

Letters can be words of encouragement, opportunities for reflection, pride, and hopes for the next four years. This is a great opportunity to share all of the things you want to say on move-in day, but might not be able to emotionally handle.  

If you have any questions, please contact Parent & Family Programs at (479) 575-5002 or e-mail us at parents@uark.edu.
