Arkansas State University

Arkansas State University developed from an agricultural school founded on April 1, 1909 by Act 100 of the 37th Arkansas General Assembly. It was created as one of four Arkansas high schools to teach agriculture, horticulture and the art of textile manufacturing. Today, the university grants bachelors, masters and doctoral degrees through its various campuses. With cutting-edge research capabilities, Arkansas State is building on its first hundred years and looking to the future.
