Welcome to Arkansas State University!

The faculty of the college has a long history of building bridges with the community and creating partnerships between the college and the K-12 community by visiting schools, being part of science fairs as judges, inviting groups of students and their councilors to visit the college. However, the first step in a coordinated effort by the college in partnership with local industry was the CUSI-sponsored coding camp held during the summer of 2019.  While we were not able to offer outreach activities during 2020 due to the pandemic, the college hosted an open house for potential students and their families to visit the labs in the college, meet with faculty and our students. Three week-long, day summer camps during the summer of 2021.
