"I am delighted that Arkansas State University-Jonesboro is clearly a first-choice higher education destination, not only for many more Arkansas students, but for increasing numbers of students from around the world," said Potts.  "I would like to commend the outstanding work of our Office of Admissions, our Office of International Programs, our faculty, and all others across campus who collaborated to achieve these record numbers.  This is a banner day for ASU-Jonesboro."
