2019 Fall Commencement Notes


Commencement Parking Altered by Wet Grounds

JONESBORO – Because of soggy ground on the grass areas south of Fowler Center and adjacent to Tomlinson Stadium and Kell Field, and the grass area south of Aggie Road, parking will not be allowed in these areas for Arkansas State University’s fall commencement, Saturday, Dec. 14. 

To accommodate overflow, parking will be allowed at North Park Quads, Honors and Red Wolf Den Apartments, in addition to the normal paved parking lots surrounding First National Bank Arena. Commencement begins at 10 a.m. in the arena.

More than 1,500 graduates will receive diplomas from Chancellor Kelly Damphousse during the ceremony.
