FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. - At the University of Arkansas Thursday, a school tradition carried on as crews blasted names into the ground.
Every student that graduates from the University of Arkansas has his or her name etched into the concrete along with the entire graduating class.
The tradition began back in the 1870s.
Crews started blasting the names from the class of 2016 today, but they say it's taking more labor to get the job done this year.
"The list of names are getting so big now that it's taking two crews to do it. It used to just take one. This year, we had almost 6,000 graduates going in the walk, so it takes two crews," Lonnie Luper said.
It will take about three weeks to get all of the names in the ground. In addition to this year's addition, the first 50 years will soon be refurbished and possibly replaced by granite.
