A-State Remains Closed on Monday, Dec. 9, due to Continuing Winter Weather Conditions


JONESBORO – Arkansas State University remains closed on Monday, Dec. 9, due to continuing winter weather conditions.

“Our top priority is the safety of all members of the Arkansas State family,” Chancellor Tim Hudson said.  “The assessment of our staff is it will be hazardous to reopen Monday with the condition of roads across the region.”

A-State administrators anticipate campus will reopen on Tuesday, Dec. 10.

University Provost Lynita Cooksey announced final exams scheduled for Monday, Dec. 9, are rescheduled for Thursday, Dec. 12.

“For the safety of everyone involved – our students, our faculty and our staff -- we will move exams,” Cooksey said.

Cooksey urged students with concerns about final exams or projects to reach out directly via email to their instructors.

A-State closed on Friday, Dec. 6, and moved final exams set for that day to Wednesday, Dec. 11.

The shifting of the exam schedule due to winter weather also extends the closing date for the university’s residence halls.  Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs Rick Stripling changed the closing to Friday, Dec. 13, at noon.

While offices and classes are closed, the university’s residential life areas, including Acansa Dining Hall, continue to operate to support the on-campus student population.

The Dean B. Ellis Library and the ITS computer lab are also closed Monday.

Sunday evening’s event at the Convocation Center, The Story, was cancelled.  Persons with tickets may request refunds through the main A-State Ticket Office once the university reopens.

The Youth Orchestra Concert scheduled for Dec. 9 is postponed until January.
