Alums Can Connect with A-State and Partners thru New App


JONESBORO – When Saturday’s commencement ceremonies conclude, Arkansas State University’s new alumni have a new way to activate their free membership.

Yes, there is an app for that.

In each new graduate’s diploma cover is a special QR code from the Arkansas State Alumni Association to download the new A-State Alumni Membership app.

“This app allows Alumni Association members the ability to carry their membership card, and all the membership benefits, in their smart phones,” Alumni Association Executive Director Beth Smith said.

While Arkansas State’s official SmartCampus app provides many news and information services, the additional A-State Alumni app will alert a member to a benefit or discount when they are in proximity to one of the dozens of partner and supporter organizations.

“Sometimes members aren’t aware or forget that we have discounts and other benefits with businesses,” Smith continued.  “When an alumni member is near one of our partner businesses, the app will alert them if they have their notifications turned on.”

The app is available for all A-State Alumni Association members in both the iTunes App Store for iOS devices and the Google Play Store for Android.

Other features include allowing current members to renew membership as well as receive special news directly from the association.

For more information on the app and membership benefits, go to AStateAlumni.org.
