Welcome to Arkansas State University!

+ SHOW

A-State Closed on Jan. 16 due to winter precipitation.

Arkansas State University is closed today, Tuesday, Jan. 16, due to winter precipitation. All winter response staff members are requested to report to their duty stations.

Overnight, snow fall made conditions for students, faculty and staff hazardous.

"Our administrative team determined the snowfall was going to be heavier than forecast and while today was scheduled to be the first day of class for the spring 2018 semester, I've decided it is best that we cancel classes for today," Chancellor Kelly Damphousse said.

All classes at the Jonesboro and Paragould locations are cancelled. Online classes continue.

While offices and classes are closed, university residential life areas continue to operate to support the on-campus student population.

For students living on-campus, Acansa Dining Hall will operate under "brunch hours" with service from 10:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. and then 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.

Event Details


A-State ABI DNA Day

04/7/2017, 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Student Activity Center



The goal of our event is provide an opportunity for students to learn about and celebrate the latest advances in genomic research and explore how those advances might impact their lives.

During the event, Jr. High students from regional Arkansas schools will participate in an entire morning of hands-on activities centered on genetic research going on at A-State. They will learn about how DNA is used in plant bioengineering of human pharmaceuticals to how it used to track down wildlife poachers.

This year, we have partnered with the Endangered Wolf Center in Missouri and the A-State College of Sciences and Mathematics for a Red Wolf conservation event theme.
