Students visited the Old State House Museum, the Historic Arkansas Museum, the Arkansas State Capitol, and the William J. Clinton Presidential Library. ASUMH instructors Dr. Rebecca Baird and Sandra Garland received funding for the trip from the ASUMH Pattee Academic Enrichment Grant.

At the Arkansas State Capitol, ASUMH students were greeted by Senator Johnny Key and Representative Karen Hopper who is the Associate Vice Chancellor for Special Projects at ASUMH.
