A-State Closing Tuesday, Jan. 16
Today at 12:39 AM
JONESBORO – Arkansas State University is closed today, Tuesday, Jan. 16, due to winter precipitation. All winter response staff members are requested to report to their duty stations.
Overnight, snow fall made conditions for faculty and staff hazardous.
"Our administrative team determined the snowfall was going to be heavier than forecast and while today was scheduled to be the first day of class for the spring 2018 semester, I've decided it is best that we cancel classes for today," Chancellor Kelly Damphousse said.
All classes at the Jonesboro and Paragould locations are cancelled. Online classes continue.
While offices and classes are closed, university residential life areas continue to operate to support the on-campus student population.
For students living on-campus, Acansa Dining Hall will operate under "brunch hours" with service from 10:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. and then 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.
