Arkansas State remains closed on Wednesday, Feb. 1

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:

  • The Dean B. Ellis Library (online resources available 24/7)

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.

Duty Bound

by Van Hawkins

Duty Bound CoverAnnouncing the release of Duty Bound by Van Hawkins.


The Hyatt family of Monticello, Arkansas sent four sons off to fight in the Civil War, and only one returned, though an amputee. Three of the Hyatts served in the legendary Third Arkansas infantry, which saw action at such well known battles as Antietam, Gettysburg, and Chickamauga. The letters they wrote home, housed at the Arkansas State University Museum, form the basis for this book.
