Enjoy TACO Tuesday with ASU Deans
By Hazel Scott/ASU
Discover what Alabama State University has to offer while invigorating your weekday with TACO Tuesday (Talk About COllege Tuesday). Grab a taco and join Alabama State University's virtual fiesta every Tuesday from 6-7 p.m. on Facebook Live to learn about ASU’s different colleges and degree programs.
Virtual TACO Tuesday is part of ASU’s Birthday events (June 18-July 18) celebrating 153 years of the University’s proud tradition and commitment to academic excellence.
Every Tuesday leading up to ASU’s Birthday on July 18, two communications students (DiVonta Palmer and Natasha Winton Clarke) will interview the deans of all seven of ASU’s colleges and the Levi Watkins Learning Center to share information about the University’s degree programs.
"The Virtual TACO Tuesday will provide a new level of access for many students to hear from academic leaders via a virtual format. Students will have an opportunity to hear about academic program offerings and the exciting opportunities within the colleges, including internships and partnerships;" said Interim Assistant Provost for Academic Affairs, Dr. Tanjula Petty. "The sessions will help build affinity with those students and give them direct and indirect information they might not be able to get any other way.”
She emphasized that ASU looks forward to the day that the University will be able to welcome students and their families to the ASU campus, "but through COVID-19, we have developed a greater appreciation for the value of virtual programming," she added.
So, go ahead and spice up your Tuesdays with some tacos and knowledge as new students, returning students and their families learn more about ASU’s resources.
