   ASU Centennial Celebration begins
        April 1, 1909-April 1, 2009

Today, April 1, marks the official beginning of Arkansas State University-Jonesboro's Centennial Celebration.
Join administration, faculty, staff, and students as we celebrate 100 years of history today. A full slate of activities scheduled for today usher in Arkansas State University’s Centennial Celebration with Founders’ Day activities, including a lawn picnic and a parade in downtown Jonesboro.

ASU begins a year-long celebration of its first 100 years with float displays and judging at 10 a.m. From 10 a.m.-12 noon, celebrate ASU's 100th birthday with cake and other refreshments, followed by a picnic on the lawn of ASU's Historic Quadrangle from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. The Historic Quadrangle is the area near the Historic Arch, located south of the Administration Building and Wilson Hall, north of the ASU Library, bounded on the west by Cooley Drive and on the east by Caraway Road.

At 1:30 p.m., a concert featuring the ASU Brass Quintet will serve as a prelude to the  Centennial Celebration Ceremony and the re-dedication of ASU’s Arch. All events will take place on the Quadrangle.

At 6 p.m., all are invited to the Centennial Parade, Main Street, downtown Jonesboro.
