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.

Making History at Arkansas State

In an effort to enhance student learning and engagement, students will be required to have an iPad® for the Making Connections course. All incoming, first year students take the Making Connections course, which focuses on transitioning students into college-level learners by introducing critical academic skills and campus resources. This year, Making Connections will embed technology into the curriculum.

All first year students will be required to have an iPad to better prepare for the demands of the workplace. Faculty and students will explore study skills, personal organization, and research using the apps available on the iPad. Students will also be able to access the course text and other books using digital text. A-State envisions students will have the sophisticated technical advantage to be competitive in a variety of settings.
