What are the Pacesetters?
The Pacesetter campaign is a tradition at Arkansas Tech University. Every year, the
Pacesetter committee educates students about the importance of giving back. Look around
you: the campus and the community that you are now a part of has been made better
by those who came before you and made gifts to the Arkansas Tech Foundation.
As we continue to build for the future by building on the foundations of the past, graduates who wish to give as part of the class gift may do so online here or by returning this form.

- Three personalized certificates honoring those who have impacted your education
- The benefit of helping other students achieve their goals
Why should I give?
Alumni, parents, and friends of the University provide support each year to fund scholarships, academic programs, and more. As you prepare for graduation, the Pacesetter campaign will give you the opportunity to thank them for their generosity – and take part in a standing tradition that will benefit the Tech students who follow you. Here are why some of your classmates chose to be a Pacesetter:
"We should all support Arkansas Tech University. I, as many other students, not only agree it is a great place to receive a college education, but the opportunities to expand and grow as a person are endless. We all need to make sure we keep this trend going." -- Alaina Harpenau
"I think being a Pacesetter is important because it shows appreciation for the departments that have supported you throughout your college journey. I am donating my $20.17 to SSS [Student Support Services]. Their help has been immeasurable in my success." -- Camille Jordan
