A-State students participate in Welcome Week activities

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

Thousands of students began their fall semester classes at Arkansas State University Monday.

They were welcomed back by activities hosted by the Student Activities Board.

Students gathered at the Student Union where they could win free A-State apparel along with sno cones.

Events Director for the Student Activities Board Rebekah Frayer said this is a great opportunity to welcome new students and help them get involved.

“I think all the freshmen are super excited to be at A-State,” Frayer said. “They are trying to find something fun to do throughout the day to kind of adjust being away from home and stuff so it's good for them to have something fun to do here on the first day.”

More events are scheduled throughout the week including an ice cream social Tuesday and the Community Organizational Fair on Wednesday.
