Arkansas State University will remain closed on Wednesday, Feb. 1, due to a major winter storm.

With approximately a half inch of ice accumulation from overnight sleet, temperatures hovering in the high 20s and another round of wintery mix predicted for Tuesday afternoon, all on-campus classes are cancelled for Feb. 1, and all academic and business offices remain closed.

For Wednesday, the following on-campus services will operate under their established, abbreviated hours:

  • The Reng Student Union will open for on-campus student usage at 8 a.m., closing at 8 p.m.
  • Dining Services will operate on brunch hours.

The following facilities will be closed:

With the wintery mix forecast to end on Wednesday and a potential warming above 32 degrees, an evaluation of campus roads and surfaces will be made on Wednesday to determine if campus can re-open for regular business for Feb. 2.

Risk Management


The Office of Risk Management provides guidance and support to university departments by reviewing business activities and components of on-going programs for purposes of identifying and assessing risks, assisting with the development of risk mitigation plans and monitoring the effectiveness of plans to minimize losses and increase the likelihood of positive business outcomes.

Direct risk management functions of the office include responsibility for the university's property insurance, assessment and purchase of certain ancillary insurance policies, and third-party contract liability and insurance review.

Whether sponsored by the university or by third-parties, these activities create opportunities to connect with our potential, future students, and are a privilege that involves unique responsibilities and challenges.
