      JONESBORO – Arkansas State University is lighting the clock tower of Dean B. Ellis Library multiple times in May to salute graduating students.

      The tower will be lighted blue Friday, May 6, to celebrate the nursing graduates who participated in the annual pinning ceremony that evening. The tower turns to scarlet Saturday, May 7, in recognition of A-State students graduating during Spring Commencement that morning.
