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)
  • Red WOLF Center

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.
