WHAT IS A #TK, or #TRADITIONSKEEPER?
A #TK is a UAFS student making the most of his or her college experience by enjoying the opportunities available through UAFS traditions.
HOW DO I BECOME A #TRADITIONSKEEPER?
Complete a tradition, collect "proof" (this could be a T-shirt, ticket stub, receipt, and many other things), and keep the "proof" of completing a tradition in your T-book. You can even attach it directly to the page! We've left a blank spot just for that! A few select traditions that SAA has more involvement with have a custom sticker you can collect (as an option) at the event from an SAA member. He or she will be easy to find, just look for the person carrying a #TraditionsKeeper sign!
Once you have completed 28 (or more) traditions be sure you collect all your "proof" with your T-Book. Bring your T-book and "proof" to the SAA office (located in the Alumni Office on the corner of Waldron and Grand), and you will recieve your #TraditionsKeeper certificate, your cords to wear during commencement, and your embossed UAFS diploma mat.
WHY SHOULD I BECOME A #TRADITIONSKEEPER?
College life is not automatically an experience of a lifetime; you have to make it one! By being involved at UAFS as a #TraditionsKeeper you meet people who become lifelong friends, learn the history and significance of UAFS, and make memories you can share for years to come.
HOW DO I GET MY OWN COPY OF TRADITIONS?
Go to the Alumni Office on the corner of Waldron and Grand across from Gardner!
