Welcome to Arkansas State University!

Favorite Place on Campus: Heritage Plaza Lawn is one of my favorite places on campus. It's a great place to enjoy a meal at one of the outdoor tables or hang out with friends. During the first week of class, Heritage Plaza Lawn is home to the Welcome Week Fair along with numerous other events throughout the year

Favorite Campus Event: Each year during the first week of class, the Student Activities Board hosts the Welcome Week Fair. This is a great way to meet new friends and network with people in the community. Plus, you can pick up a few freebies while you're there!

Free Time Activities: I love spending time with my dog, Oliver! Also, I enjoy live theater, being outdoors, and an occasional book. Family and friends make any of these activities complete.

Favorite Place to Eat in Jonesboro: The best place to eat in town is Skinny J’s! Not only do they have an outstanding menu, but also friendly and familiar faces. Some nights, you can enjoy live music along with the fun atmosphere!

Most Interesting Class You Took in College: Definitely Principles of Argumentation - this class is no joke. It not only helped me to develop more useful communication skills, but it also pushed me outside of my comfort zone.

#1 Piece of Advice for Prospective Students: Explore your options early! Early in your high school career is the best time to start making a checklist of things that you want out of your college experience. The best way to explore each university is to go for a campus visit. We would love to show you around A-State's campus!  Schedule your visit today at www.astate.edu/visit
