New Unity Park at Arkansas State University

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

There’s another new addition coming to Arkansas State University’s Jonesboro campus.

Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs Rick Stripling announced Friday the creation of a new and expanded Unity Park.

It will serve as a gathering place for the student fraternity and sorority organizations.  The park is relocating to a larger site in the heart of the Greek life part of campus.

“The new Unity Park allows the university to provide an area for members of the NPHC to have more space for events,” Stripling said.  “We worked during the spring semester with the student leaders of NPHC, their advisers and our chapters to get input and feedback on the design and location of the park.”

Stripling says the new park will be 60' in diameter with a paved plaza that is larger than the original space, with a bench for each group as compared to only three total at the previous location.
