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.

This growing department is characterized by addressing biological issues ranging from local to global and from molecular to organismal. A great deal of our research is approached from an interdisciplinary perspective and many of our faculty members have collaborative projects. In the last couple of years our department has increased both the number of publications and grant money generated almost exponentially.

We also have exciting projects happening at the Harp Biological Field Station and collaborative efforts with the Arkansas Biosciences Institute, and many others. 

Why choose A-State Biology?

Our diverse experiences and expertise contribute to a high quality educational environment that:

  • offers a curriculum in biological sciences emphasizing acquisition of knowledge through integration of theory with practical laboratory and field studies;
  • provides opportunities to develop critical scientific reasoning, communication skills and the appropriate use of technology;
  • extends our skills and facilities in service to the public as well as to the scientific community.

In summary, the study of biology provides an understanding of life and plays a vital role in the education of the general public who are the stewards of our natural resources.
