Welcome to Arkansas State University!


The 14th Annual Create @ State Symposium will be Thursday, April 18, 2024

A-State’s student research and creativity development program, Create @ State, is a year-long program that provides our traditional and online students with opportunities to become engaged in faculty mentored research and creativity with industry, community, and alumni for student learning and community building. 

This program culminates each year with the Create @ State Symposium to showcase the co-curricular research, scholarly, and creative works of our students in a professional setting, with judges being those from industry, stakeholders, alumni, community leaders, and administration.
