JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) – It was all about leadership for hundreds of high school students at Arkansas State University as they learned valuable skills at ASU's Leadership Day.

Over 16 schools and roughly 250 students from Missouri and Arkansas where at Tuesday's event.

Students took in sessions on anything from planning homecoming week, to time management, and understanding their leadership style.

Assistant Dean of Students Natalie Eskew says the event accomplishes two goals.  "We obviously want them to walk away with some better leadership skills." Eskew said. "We also want them to be at ASU.  We hope we can show off our great university and hopefully get them excited about attending ASU."

Walnut Ridge High School student Eric Wilcoxson says it's very helpful. "This is my second year here and we are learning different leadership skills and how we can work as a team.  We can take ideas back to school and we can make new friends." Wilcoxson said at today's event.

The event is sponsor by the ASU leadership Center.
