Students plan Martin Luther King Jr. Week events
The Student Activities Board, working in conjunction with other student groups, has planned several activities in recognition of Martin Luther King Jr. Week on the ASU campus.  Attractive posters listing the events have been placed around campus.  Classes will not be in session Monday, Jan. 20; students are encouraged to give a day of service to Abilities Unlimited in honor of Dr. King.

The 'inside' story on that dirt you've heard about
If you thought you had missed the announcement of another new building going up at ASU, relax.  Several individuals have asked what is being built just east of Caraway Road, between the railroad tracks.  The answer? Temporary parking for Baldwin & Shell's construction workers.  Excavated dirt from the Biosciences/Biotechnology Building construction site will provide the foundation for the lot, and nothing else.

Reminder: Dr. Mildred Vance to be honored
Everyone is invited to attend a reception in honor of Dr. Mildred Vance, who is retiring after 54 years of service to ASU.  The event will be Monday, Jan. 20, 3-6 p.m., in the Grand Hall of Fowler Center.  Those who would like to contribute letters or other mementoes for a memory book should send items to Dawn Tucker, University Advancement, Admin Room 104.

Several ABI research proposals approved
ASU faculty members submitted 15 proposals to the Arkansas Biosciences Institute in response to its request last November for research projects which are consistent with ABI's mission.  Several have been approved for funding, according to Dr. Susan Davis Allen, vice chancellor for research and academic affairs.  We will publish the details in the next issue of 'Inside ASU.'

QUEST seeks your feedback on Finance & Administration
The Office for Finance and Administration's Quality and Efficiency Support Team (QUEST) will hold support group meetings in various locations on campus later during the month of January and February to gather information on F & A's processes and procedures -- what they do right, what suggestions for improvement various departments might have, etc. 
For details about these sessions, visit quest.astate.edu.

ASU Athletics: first to launch football ticket campaign
ASU launched its 2003 football season ticket campaign Saturday, the first school in the nation to do so, according to the Athletics Department. The campaign, sponsored by First Community Bank, was launched during halftime of the basketball game. A number of events are planned for the campaign, including the Recruiting Roundup on Feb. 6 at The Colonnade. Watch for details or visit http://www.asuindians.com/.
