Every day, we live and breathe being part of the community. We’ve been the academic heart of Arkadelphia since 1890, and we take great pride in the relationship we’ve had with the local community. Every year we serve as an educational, recreational, and professional resource for local schoolchildren, families, adult learners, scientists, and business leaders.
