Dear Future Red Wolf:

The choice of which university fits your needs and goals is a very personal one. I encourage you to look at several universities to seek out the one that is the best match for you and your family.

I believe you will discover that almost every university in America has an English department. Teaches organic chemistry. Promotes community engagement. Supports the arts.

What sets at Arkansas State apart are the “ships” we offer to our students. The relationships with your professors, not just as teachers – as mentors. The friendships you will forge with classmates that last a lifetime. The scholarships you can earn to reduce the overall cost of attendance. The internships – whether in a laboratory on campus or at a corporation in our community – that provide real-world experience during your undergraduate years.

Story after story from our alumni tell the same tale: a single professor, an adviser, a staff member who reached out, took the time, and provided mentorship. As you do your research, I encourage you to watch some of the video interviews of our recent graduates. You can find them at You should also look up some of your future professors to see their personalities at

Beth and I want to invite you to visit Arkansas State. Come to the Welcome Center and see for yourself. When you visit – and when you become one of the Red Wolves – you can always reach me at and on social media @KDamp. I look forward to welcoming you the Pack!

Wolves Up! Kelly Damphousse Chancellor

Undergraduate research is common at Arkansas State. Working alongside faculty provides inspiration and insights into how you can reach the next level either in business or in graduate school.

“We encourage students to join us in the lab and take great pride in their achievements.”

Advantages of Living On Campus
> you’re close everything – classes, cafeteria, extracurricular activities.
> you’ll pay less
...once you add up all of the associated expenses for off-campus living, like first and last month’s rent, cable, internet, furniture and appliances, utilities (if they are not included in rent), cleaning costs, and transportation to and from campus.
> you’re connected on campus makes it easier for students to stay engaged with other students and organizations.
> you’ll stay well-fed on campus means that you have access to a wide variety of dining options, all within walking distance. No need to cook or clean up.
> there’s no 12 month leases
...if you don’t plan to go to summer school, you are still responsible for paying rent for the remainder of the lease. Residence Life agreements are for the academic year only; there are no extra summer time expenses.
> parking is easier
...after you purchasing your annual parking decal, you will have access to parking spaces near the residence halls. Once on campus, there is no need to drive. You’ll save money on gas and not have to fight for a parking spot each time you return to campus. All academic buildings and extracurricular activities are within an easy walking distance.
> in the event...
...and it rarely happens, if you have roommate or suitemate problems, the Department of Residence Life will provide options for moving. This is a luxury you won’t have with an apartment lease. You’ll be committed to that roommate for the length of the lease.

Why did you choose A-State?
A-State is in my backyard, but I didn't come here just because it was the easiest thing to do.
I made a definite decision to come to school here. Arkansas State has so many programs academically and athletically that are on the rise. Having the opportunity to be on the baseball team just sealed the deal.
