Welcome to Arkansas State University!

  • Lecture Concert Series

    The Lecture-Concert Series serves Arkansas State University and the surrounding communities in bringing to the A-State campus notable guest speakers and performers of diverse backgrounds and wide appeal. Many of the Lecture-Concert Series events include additional activities on the A-State campus as well as community outreach projects that enhance the quality of life and culture within and beyond the bounds of our university.  As in the past, all our events are free and open to the public.
