The University of Arkansas is what you make it. It can be a wonderful place to get an education with lots of opportunities for volunteering, community involvement, and resume development. The presence of Walmart so near the campus means there's a lot of money for grants, research, and plenty of job opportunities for students. However, due to the large size of the campus, students really have to search for these opportunities. If you're not willing to put in a little bit of work to find your niche, you will end up sitting in your dorm room every weekend. The area is growing rapidly, so finding housing, parking, etc is getting more and more difficult all the time. Greek life is big, but as a GDI I still had an easy time making friends. Sports are HUGE with students flocking to The Hill for football and basketball games. The environment at the games is really fun and I would suggest attending a few, even if you're not a huge sports fan. Overall, I really enjoyed my time and would reccomend this school to someone looking for a safe campus with good opportunities!
The University of Arkansas is a really good college. The campus is clean, a good amount of the facilities are new or have recently been updated, and almost all of the professors are good, but a few of my business professors weren't the best. Going to football, baseball, and softball games is awesome because everyone is so passionate about Razorback sports, and the town has a something to offer everyone. There are thrift stores, bike trails, good restaurants, hiking, fishing, a Volkswagen graveyard, rivers to kayak, etc.
My personal opinion of the U of A is different than most. I never lived on campus, and therefore, I am not as involved in campus life as much as the people who do live on or near campus. What I can speak for, though, is what it is like for someone who does not live here. I feel like parking is made to be difficult so that you will pay over $1000 for a close parking spot. Once you are on campus thought, it is a beautiful place. The people in your cohorts get to know you. Within the college, there are mini colleges so that people that are studying similar things to you will be in your classes. You can enter every building for the majority of the day, which usually gives you lots of places to go study. There is a coffee shop on every corner which helps all of us get to our 8 am classes. Finally, for the most part, you can adjust your classes to fit your schedule outside of school. Whether that be morning classes, night classes, or even online, you can find a way to accommodate your schedule.
I love the University of Arkansas! It truly is a great place to branch out and learn, and the university itself provides ample opportunity for intellectual growth. UARK offers plenty of niche classes, and the facilities are wonderful. Greek life is a big thing on campus, but every sorority is known for being welcoming and inclusive, while frats can be a little daunting to approach. Plenty of extracurricular programs are offered, and the school funds several student-ran clubs. Truly a great place to be!

friends and connections! the dorm first year experience is definitely the way to go
Most of my classmates are from the south, and are nice and well mannered.
I love the University of Arkansas. The professors are approachable and understanding. The campus is gorgeous year-round. The students are kind and helpful and fun.The offices are managed well and are always helpful and patient.
It's big enough to not get bored, but small enough that you can really get to know people (often of many different ethnicities)
There is not a lot of diversity race wise, and most of the campus activities circle around fraternities and sororities. I used to be in a sorority, and I believe that both fraternities and sororities on this campus have an unrealistic view of how much a student can handle, meaning they fine you money if you dont make social events, even if you were studying for a test. This is why I am no longer in a sorority and dont agree with anything they stand for.
Someone that is unwilling to implement time management and sacrifice social time for study time.
My favorite thing about the University of Arkansas is the atmosphere of the campus. The professors really care about your success, and the students in the classes are there to learn, which is awesome!
My school has a lot of school spirit, and not just about sports. I, for one, don't have any interest in sports, but I love my school. Of course there's always room for improvement, but I have no regrets about choosing the University of Arkansas.
The teachers and school do not set students up for success, you get the run around from all the staff to try to get anywhere financially or academically.
Focused, well rounded confident person
The most frustrating thing that I have noticed about my school so far is the excessive expenses such as parking stickers and orientation fees.
I think we are best known for our tradition. The school still records the name of every graduate in the sidewalk. The name of every alumni of that school can be found permanently recorded in those walkways.
I brag about the size of our campus.
I believe there is a stereotype that UofA students spend most of their time partying at the local bars/pubs nearby the campus. However, most of the students I have come into contact with have expressed their eagerness to do well in school and how hard they work at keeping their grades up. It is a small population that constantly parties instead of taking their classes more seriously.
All dorms were not created equal. Humphreys and Yocum are probably located best but Humphreys doesn't have air conditioning so Yocum is probably better. Pomfret is great except for the hill you have to hike to get to class so keep that in consideration. The Quads are great and are in the building of the best cafeteria but the suites really take away the community feel of the dorms. Futrall is awesome.
This is the Arkansas Razorbacks calling the hogs on game day.
