A-State Connection  

A-State Connection is a recruitment program held annually each April for high achieving minority high school juniors in Arkansas. This is an exciting and informative day for students to connect to Arkansas State University!

Students will be connected to the university in the following areas: admissions, financial aid, academics, residential life, campus resources, and student life. Participants will also get the opportunity to meet and hear from our current student leaders and learn more about the student organizations on campus. We are certain that each participant will enjoy being in Red Wolf Nation!
