Today marks five years of Inside ASU
Inside ASU, the online newsletter for faculty and staff of ASU-Jonesboro, celebrates its fifth anniversary with this issue, the 401st since its inception. Begun Oct. 8, 2002, the newsletter was originally published once a week by the Office of University Communications. On Sept. 8, 2005, Inside ASU began appearing twice weekly, and on Sept. 8, 2006, Inside ASU began appearing thrice weekly. Inside ASU aims to provide timely news and information for and about faculty and staff. Although Inside ASU is primarily a vehicle for internal communications, it has an external communications purpose, too. Inside ASU is sent to several legislators, the ASU Board of Trustees, members of the ASU Foundation, Inc., board, and news media representatives in northeast Arkansas, Little Rock, and Memphis.  Feedback is always appreciated; send input to Tom Moore or Sara McNeil.

Dr. Gill gives paper at international symposium in Athens
Dr. Alyson Gill, Art History, gave a paper entitled "Virtual Delphi: Two Case Studies" in a conference session on 3D rendering and virtual environments at the 21st International Committee for Architectural Photogrammetry (CIPA), in Athens, Greece. Gill's paper outlined the collaborative project, "Ashes2Art," between ASU and Coastal Carolina University. Gill presented two case studies from the Greek sanctuary at Delphi, the Tholos of Athena Pronaia, and ASU student Richard Taylor's rendering of the Greek bath. This spring, Gill will continue her Ashes2Art class at ASU, moving beyond the gymnasium and into the sanctuary proper. The ASU Ashes2Art website, "Digital Delphi," will be launched next month.
