Faculty Staff Appreciation Day, reservations due
Saturday, Sept. 2, is the annual Faculty/Staff Appreciation Day from 4 until 5:30 p.m. on the west side of the stadium as A-State teams up against Army with a 6 p.m. kickoff. Tickets to the game are only $2 per person and meal tickets are a mere $2 for the tailgate. The tailgate menu consists of fried chicken with all the fixins'. And, don't forget to bring your lawn chairs and blankets, because seating is limited for the tailgate. In case you were wondering, fliers and reservation forms were mailed by interdepartmental mail late last month. The deadline for ordering game or meal tickets is next Thursday, Aug. 24, so get those forms turned into the President's Office. Game and meal tickets will be delivered to departments. For more details, contact the President's Office at 972-3030.

New residence hall ... Operation Move-in
Today and tomorrow, students will be moving into residence halls as Operation Move-in takes over the campus. With the opening of the new residence hall on northeast corner of the campus and the additional number of students residing on campus this year, some changes will occur. University Hall will remain "female only," while Arkansas Hall will be "men only." Kays Hall will be co-ed, by wing. The newly opened residence hall, which has five residential buildings will be structured differently by each building. 
  The new residence hall brings a new type of campus living for ASU students with 836 bedrooms or 209 suites, with each suite containing four private bedrooms, two baths plus a shared living and kitchenette area. The private bedrooms will include a phone number, cable, and a data port with high speed Internet and wireless capabilities. Numerous other amenities are available in the residence hall, which is open only to upper level students. Of course, other upper level students reside in Collegiate Park Apartments or in Indian Village for non-traditional students. The fall semester begins on Monday, Aug. 21, with the first day of classes. Welcome everyone!
