Fowler Family Hospitality Services Building

ASUN began an exciting phase into the future with the groundbreaking of its new Fowler Family Hospitality Services Building on the ASUN Jonesboro campus. The building will house new culinary and hospitality services programs as well as facilitate additional classroom laboratory learning opportunities. The facility will include a 3,300-square-foot, state-of-the-art commercial training kitchen; a 2,000-square-foot dining space; a food-service classroom; as well as computer and science lab spaces. The program will begin in Fall 2013.

A $1 million dollar donation from the Fowler Family of Jonesboro will endow the building, provide resources for equipping the facility, and ensure quality educational for the food service industry of Northeast Arkansas. The ASU System Board of Trustees approved a resolution on September 7, 2012 naming the facility the Fowler Family Hospitality Services Building.
