ATUS Change Brings Students toTown Earlier

Kirksville businesses and landlords will feel the expected end-of-summer boost from incoming students at A-T Still Univeristy a bit sooner starting this summer. A new academic calendar at ATSU means students will now begin classes in mid-July instead of mid-August. The school says the change will directly impact community members, area businesses, and local landlords as students seek housing and prepare for their move to Kirksville earlier than in previous years. Area businesses can expect an increase of student patrons in June and July.
