Free concert part of Family Day at Arkansas Tech

One of Arkansas Tech University’s oldest traditions will continue on Saturday, Sept. 24, when Family Day 2011 events play out across the Russellville campus.

Family Day at Arkansas Tech dates back to 1924. Originally known as Dad’s Day, the event has evolved over the years to become an annual opportunity for families to visit their students on campus and see how they are adjusting to life at college.

The Arkansas Tech Office of Student Services coordinates a number of Family Day activities to welcome parents and other family members of Tech students.

A live concert has become an annual tradition in recent years, and 2011 will be no different. This year’s Family Day musical act will be Satisfaction, a Rolling Stones tribute band that has performed more than 1,500 shows around the world over the past 10 years.

The free concert will begin at 4 p.m.
