TEXARKANA, Texas – Due to the forecast of inclement weather on Tuesday (Feb 19), Texas A&M University-Texarkana has decided to cancel the grand opening event for the Building for Academic and Student Services. All other campus operations will continue as scheduled.
We apologize for any inconvenience, but with many of our guests traveling to attend the ceremony, we must cancel in the interest of safety. An open house celebration will be planned in the coming weeks, and we will announce those plans as soon as possible.
