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.

  • The American Spiritual Ensemble will perform at Fowler Center's Riceland Hall tonight at 7:30pm.

Welcome

We welcome teachers to be a part of the Advanced Placement Summer Institute. It will include ten areas for certification for AP and three areas for Pre AP. Each of the AP and Pre AP consultants serving the teachers are strong in subject matter and highly skilled in presentation.

History

After realizing the need for Advanced Placement training for the teachers in our region, A-State initiated its first Summer Institute in 2004. The Institute was an instant success: we continue to enjoy excellent training, great fellowship and superb accommodations. Arkansas State University will continue to be a most accommodating host for AP Training.

Purpose

This service for training teachers in AP & Pre AP strategies is provided through the College of Education & Behavioral Science. It will prepare public school teachers to use specific strategies, techniques and resources for creating the successful AP classroom.

Curriculum

Student success in Advanced Placement courses is a strong indicator of future success in college. This year, the Institute will offer training in thirteen AP and Pre-AP subjects. All the AP and Pre AP classes are arranged for both new & experienced teachers.
