Go Hogs Go...

Hello dear Kanakuk Friends,
Allow me a moment to relish in my past...I am forever a loyal Arkansas Razorback Alum! I love the town, love the school, love the Hogs, and love the people. I was quite excited when Kay Holliday (our Kanakuk Ambassador and alum of Arkansas...she played bball there! Woohoo!) sent me this article. I was exstatic (not sure of spelling on that one).

So girls if you are looking for a great school...

Be awesome, love Jesus and Go Hogs,
Kanakuk Ashley

"University Athletics Puts Fayetteville on Forbes List
City ranked among Top 10 College Sports Towns
Tuesday, March 09, 2010

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – The combination of Razorback athletics and the quality of life associated with a “college town” has placed Fayetteville at No. 7 in the Forbes magazine list of “Top College Sports Towns.”

The magazine compiled the list by first looking at the quality of the total sports offerings at various universities as rated by members of the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics. Then “quality of life” was factored in, based on average home prices, median household income figures, the quality of the public school system and the local crime rate. The magazine also pulled a few details from its previous “best of” lists to fill out the picture.

Fayetteville was recognized for its easy access to lakes and hiking trails, as well as its farmers’ market, in addition to a solid public school system and high marks in the other areas. The sports program at the University of Arkansas, by itself, was ranked 25 on the list of total sports programs."
