Construction activity attracts interest
Anyone who visits the campus cannot help but notice the significant amount of construction underway.  The steel outline of the Biosciences/Biotechnology Building on the south edge of campus is almost complete. To help answer the most frequent questions, we have uploaded new information to the online Construction Update to provide capsule information about major projects.  We also added a link in the column at left.

Summer Children's Theatre 
The ASU Theatre has announced the schedule for Summer Children's Theatre.  This is a great opportunity for those seeking summer entertainment for their youngsters. This 8th annual presentation will feature two plays based on popular tales of Beatrix Potter and Brothers Grimm. Opening the season will be "Peter Rabbit and Me" by Aurand Harris, Tuesday through Thursday, June 17-19, at 10 a.m. and Friday, June 20, at 10 a.m. and 7:30 p.m. The second production of the season, "The Brave Little Tailor," an enchanting version of the Grimm fairy tale, will be performed Tuesday through Thursday, July 22-24, at 10 a.m. and Friday, July 25, at 10 a.m. and 7:30 p.m. Children's Theatre performances are presented at Fowler Center. Tickets may be purchased at the ASU Central Box Office in the Convocation Center for $3.50, by calling 972-ASU1, or online at tickets.astate.edu, or at the door on the day of the performance.

Board of Trustees meeting will be Friday
The ASU Board of Trustees will meet by telephone conference call Friday, June 6, at 10 a.m.  Interested individuals may monitor the call at the President's Office conference room in the Administration Building.  Adoption of the ASU operating budget for 2003-04 is the main agenda item.

Alumni chapters are branching out 
The ASU Alumni Association is now extending its reach further than ever before through alumni chapters.  In addition to special interest chapters, such as Strong-Turner and Wilson Fellows, associate members may participate in these chapters which are organized geographically: Bootheel of Missouri, North Texas, Central Arkansas, Craighead County, Grand Prairie, Greater Memphis, Greene County, Northcentral Arkansas, Northwest Arkansas, and Twin Lakes.  Chapters are getting organized in Garland County and St. Francis County, and a kick-off event is being planned for the Houston area next spring.  The Colleges of Business and Communications have chapters, and Engineering is getting one organized.

New services for BlueAdvantage subscribers
In case you missed the e-mail last week, you might want to know about "My Blueprint," which is offered to all employees with health coverage administered by BlueAdvantage (formerly USAble). My Blueprint is an online, self-service center that allows subscribers to access information about the status of claims, claims history, primary care physician history, benefits and services available, provider directories, replacement ID card requests, and new services to be added. To access this service, register at www.BlueAdvantageArkansas.com and receive your password by U.S. mail in five to seven business days.  Call your HR Rep at 972-3454 if you would like to know more.

Ideas and material are welcome
We haven't asked in some time, but we want to remind the campus community that Inside ASU is for all faculty and staff.  If you have ideas or materials to submit, send them along to Tom Moore, tmoore@astate.edu.
