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.

3rd Annual Delta Flix Film and Media Festival: April 5-8


JONESBORO – The Delta Flix Film and Media Festival is in its third year at Arkansas State University.

The Delta Flix Film and Media Festival celebrates those who express their passion for storytelling through film, video, photography and multimedia presentations.  Delta Flix Film and Media Festival provides a venue for beginning, emerging and established media artists to exhibit their work, learn from each other, and develop an appreciation for the art of film, photography, and multimedia.

The festival, sponsored by the Department of Media in collaboration with the Delta Symposium XXIII, will take place from Wednesday through Saturday, April 5‑8.   Most events will take place in the Student Union Auditorium on the third floor of the Carl R. Reng Student Union, 101 North Caraway Road.

At noon on Wednesday, April 5, John T. Wayne, an author of Western historical fiction, will make a special presentation.  Various media and panel presentations will continue throughout the afternoon, as well as screenings of films and media projects.

This year’s festival features films and media presentations from local and regional media makers.

Presentations include "The Arkansas Wildman," a documentary about local rock and roll pioneer Sonny Burgess; "The First Secret City," a feature-length documentary revealing the impact of contaminated nuclear waste used on the atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima on communities in the St. Louis area in the 21st century; and "Ridge Runners," a feature film by local filmmaker and A-State graduate Hunter West about a missing girl from a small Southern town caught up in the world of sex trafficking.
