"Jerry represents an admirable characteristic that has defined Arkansas Tech for more than 100 years - persistence," said Susie Nicholson, vice president for student services and university relations at Arkansas Tech. "Jerry's never-say-die attitude is reflected in the way Arkansas Tech has persevered through tough times.
"Students from the U.S. Army ROTC program at Arkansas Tech
were selected to serve as Jerry's on-campus caretakers as a means of carrying forward the bond that existed between the original Jerry and the National Guardsmen on campus in the 1930s," Nicholson

The Associated Press recently reported the University of Arkansasâ€™ 2011 incoming freshman class would consist of about 35 percent of students attending from out of state, but Susie Nicholson, vice president for student services and university relations at Arkansas Tech, said the universityâ€™s â€œprimary mission is to provide the people of Arkansas with access to the life-changing benefits of a baccalaureate degree.â€
â€œA high percentage of Arkansas Tech students were born and raised within a relatively short distance of our campus in Russellville,â€ Nicholson said.
She added the university actively recruits international students, which Nicholson said provides â€œa richer campus environment.â€
â€œThe cultural exchange that takes place between our native students and our students from other countries plays and integral role in our institutional belief that learning on a college campus extends beyond the classroom door,â€ she said. â€œArkansas Tech is home to more than 300 international students representing more than 30 nations.
The opportunity to learn first-hand about the various cultures represented by our international students provides our American students with a greater appreciation for the world around them and a more well-rounded college experience.â€
One of the universityâ€™s primary recruiting tools, Nicholson said, is its website, www.atu.edu.
She said the site, which has undergone changes over the past year to make it more accessible, is especially useful in the recruitment of international students.
â€œThey rarely have an opportunity to visit our campus before choosing Arkansas Tech,â€ she said. â€œFor that reason, www.atu.edu must show them that Arkansas Tech is a place where they will be comfortable while participating in an academic program that will be meaningful and valuable.â€
In addition, Nicholson said the universityâ€™s International and Multicultural Student Services Office recruits international students to the campus as well as assists international students with specific challenges they face.
