What is your overall opinion of this school?
The University of Arkansas located in Fayetteville, AR is definitely held in an high opinion for me. It's location is one of the best things about the school. Deep in the Ozarks, in the foothills of the Boston Mountains, the campus is directly adjacent to the very vibrant and tradition rich college town of Fayetteville. You can find almost anything to do around the area, from nature walks and canoeing to exploring the many activities on Dickson street, Fayetteville's major college entertainment district. Arkansas surprises many people when they come visit the state, especially the northwest part. The surrounding areas growing population enjoys a well balanced economy with many very large corporations in the area, including the grand daddy of them all, Wal-Mart. The school benefits greatly from Wal-Mart's presence especially the business college. I would definitely consider people here to be extremely friendly and always looking for a good time. Fayetteville's culture is a unique mix of various regional cultural aspects. It blends a mountain hippie retreat with a big time SEC college town. There doesn't seem to be a weekend where something unusual happens, as Fayetteville seems to operate in its own world. The one biggest complain by students is the parking at U of A. Since its built on a hill, space is hard to find. However, the administration is working on solving this problem with some pretty innovative ideas.
