Alumni Association Board recruiting students
The Board of Directors of the ASU Alumni Association is helping recruit children of ASU graduates to attend ASU. As part of a new alumni board focus, members are writing letters and making personal phone calls to prospective students. One goal is to notify ASU graduates who live out of state that their children can attend ASU at in-state tuition rates. If you know of any ASU graduates whose children are college bound and would be interested in a call, please notify the office of Alumni Relations at alumni@astate.edu.
