What’s unique about ASU is the fine arts and film departments are both dedicated to the creative visual artists and film practitioners through hands-on instruction while building and refining their crafts and skills. I am an artist that strives to be my best at drawing and painting. ASU challenges me through academic rigor that builds my confidence and develops my critical thinking skills. I also want to be able to use my artistic skills in my minor of Creative Media Production. It is designed to nurture students with a passion for storytelling and expressing themselves through visual media.

Jonesboro isn't a huge town, but it also isn't a tiny town either. The location is great, being close to Memphis, Tennessee.

Also, ASU is the only school in Arkansas that has a Forensic Science program, which was my major when I began college. There are plenty of ways to get involved as soon as school starts, even before. Many nationalities are represented at ASU too.
