Arkansas State University celebrates homecoming

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - Arkansas State University's Homecoming week is here, and there a lot of activities planned. Current students and alumni are holding a variety of events in anticipation of Saturday's game.

Executive Director of the ASU Alumni Association Beth Smith said homecoming week has something that everyone can enjoy.

"It's a chance for folks to come back on campus, see what's going on," Smith said. "While it centers on the football game, the truth is many of our academic areas have tailgate parties. So, alumni have an opportunity to spend some time with some folks they were in school with."

This year is also the 90th anniversary for the Alumni Association. To mark the occasion, 90 distinguished alumni have been named, and those that attend this Saturday's game will be recognized at half time.
