Technology is available to ASU students

Posted: Updated:

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - A grand opening took place on the campus of Arkansas State University on Wednesday morning, as students lined up to check out the new IT Tech Store located on the bottom floor of Wilson Hall.

"We saw this as a wonderful opportunity," Director of Technical and Support Services, Darla Fletcher, said. "To make it so easy for students, faculty and staff to come to one place right in the middle of campus, and get the technology they need, get the support they need."

Fletcher says they want to make sure students get whatever they need to succeed. "We want to make sure we offer the best technology," Fletcher said. "We try to be as competitive as we can on our pricing and just have it right here. Some students don't even have a way to get out into town to get to other stores to buy their technology. So, having it here, they can walk right over."

And the money earned from the store goes right back to the students, as all the profits go into the student assistant program.

The store was designed as a source of information and support. "They can come here, not even to buy," Fletcher said. "Just to come and talk to us to find out what's coming up, get their questions answered. We have a community space that anybody can go and sit, study, watch television. We're going to be expanding and promoting that area."

They offer Mac Books, PC's, IPADS, keyboards, Apple products and a wide variety of accessories.

The ASU IT Tech Store is open Monday through Friday from 8 to 5. For more information about Arkansas State University, log onto this website.
