To help folks navigate around the area, UA set up "Help a Hog" stands around campus.
"I was absolutely lost. It's my first day at the UA. I started this morning bright and early at 7:30," says Taylor Barnes, just one of the students who got turned around in all the mess.
"I'm having a little trouble just because of all the construction," she said.
But she found her class, thanks to a program called "Help A Hog."
New student programs specialist Chase Young works with "Help A Hog," which helps students map their way around the university.
"It's just critical to get those students and everybody on campus around and navigated where they need to go," said Young.
The program isn't new, but with all the construction on campus, it's already proved pivotal.
"It's key because the normal routes that you take to get places and the normal ways you go are not there," added Young.
"Help A Hog" has volunteers stationed at 11 tables around campus which gives students an opportunity to plan their routes wherever they may be.
"A lot of people are stopping by those tables because they all of a sudden get to a construction site and realize they might night be able to visibly see the right path they need to go."
As a new Razorback, Taylor is thankful to get a little direction from the helpful hogs.
Help a Hog is just one way that the UA is helping folks get around campus. You can tweet "Help a Hog" on twitter @UARKHelpaHog.
