What's unique about your campus?

Sara

A walk through an arboretum, the first contact one makes with the University of Arkansas, is a compelling and elegant gateway for students pursuing their academic queries. The varying minds on this campus, paired with the varying seasons-the falling of leaves, the efflorescent colors, the burgeoning of life and ideas-are dramatic and correlated. This aspect of the University of Arkansas spawns original and natural thought, allowing concepts from the classrooms to forster ones imagination and education to grow beyond the limits of its brick and mortar buildings.

Elise

The best thing about the University of Arkansas is the faculty and staff's eagerness to aid students and their attempt to answer all student's questions concerning course work and paths of study.

Kathryn

The University of Arkansas and the city of Fayetteville offer so many opportunities for students. These opportunities and events range from volunteer jobs, internships, cultural programs, job opportunities, connections to jobs during and after college, theatre and drama productions and shows, art galleries, LBGT awareness, sustainability, encouragement to educate yourself and vote in elections, affordable housing and living expenses such as gas and grocercies and much, much more. I consider myself extremely lucky to be surrounded by all the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville, Arkansas has to offer.

Dakota

The best thing about my school is the campus life. With a total student body of 25,000, there are tons of people that you can be. Being a D1 athletic campus also has some advantages! The fan base here is very loyal, and there are always sporting events to attend with some friends. With such a large student body, you are bound to find people who share the same interests as you. There are many Clubs and Organizations ran by fellow students that cover a vast area of topics and personal interests! So get out there and join today!

Catharine

I believe the best aspect of my school is the faculty, especially the advising department. The adjustment from a small community college to a large university was difficult but I had countless people from Student Development Specialists to Learning Coaches guiding and assisting me thorough this trying time. They helped maintain my focus and set my eyes on the finish line. It is apparent that the staff at the University of Arkansas has my success as their number one priority, not only in the classroom, but also in the work field and beyond.

Alexandra

I LOVE the campus! It's so beautiful and Fayetteville is a great town. Lots of fun things to do, places to eat and shop! Plus, nothing to bad about the Hogs!

Amber

The best thing about my school is the fact there are so many people. Some may think there are too many students, but I personally feel like it keep opportunities opening up constantly. There is always something going on that vary from study groups, or big public events. It keeps the school interesting

Caroline

Coming from a rather large town in the suburbs of Texas, I did not know what to expect when I arrived in the small rural city of Fayetteville. But, the University of Arkansas's campus size was perfect and the numerous student organizations made me feel at home. This university also contains abundant resources for students regarding financial aid and academic oppurtunities which definitely sets it apart from other schools.

Rob

That everyone is like family.

Chelsey

The best thing about my school is the school spirit. Everyone loves our school and that makes it a great place to live as well as take classes.

Seth

The best aspects of the UofA would be the Razorback sports programs and the people. I am a member of the Razorback marching band and it has been an amazing experience for me. As a band member in college, we are not looked down on like in high school. We feel like we are a part of the football or basketball program. The students are avid fans of the Hogs. There is a wide assortment of activities so you can find your niche if you look. We also have a wide variety of students from other states and countries.

Lauren

The best thing about the University of Arkansas is the professors. Every professor I have encountered is truly committed to giving the students the best possible education they can. The professors make themselves available to students 24/7 via offices hours, e-mail, and some even give their personal phone number. I absolutely love the dedication of my professors and couldn't think of a better place to receive my high education.

Joshua

The U of A has an ROTC program that sets the standard in leadership development, not only for the United States military, but also for the real world skills that students across the country will require to remain competative in the elite work force.

Paige

I would have to say the best thing about my school are the people. We are like one big family and everyone goes out of the way to make you feel welcomed and as though you are part of the Razorback family.

Felicia

The University of Arkansas is the home of Southern Hospitality. As an out of state student, hours away from home, I cannot believe how welcome I feel at the U of A. The sense of unity among the students is unmatched. Razorback pride is everywhere, including off-campus establishments. I have never seen so many mascot-related mom and pop shops and restaurants. The town people of Fayetteville and the student body alike support anything Arkansas related. I am part of a D1 school that feels like a family. Take one step on campus and you will feel the love.

Kyleigh

The best thing about University of Arkansas is the atmosphere. Students are excited to be there, and take pride in being a razorback. It is an atmosphere you cannot find anywhere else. Students learn to focus when they need to, but are also very fun loving, and know how to have fun.

Porcha

The best thing about my school is i got a chance to interact with and learn from people of all cultures through campus programs and organizations. There were religious organizations that hosted a variety events that united a large number of cultures.

Tyler

There are a lot of "best things" about the U of A - I can't really narrow it down to one. The environment is great. Trees on the campus, the historical buildings, the mountains... it's wonderful. Small town America is right in your backyard, but so is the "big city" feel: Bentonville, the home of Wal-Mart, is just a short drive away, and it has plenty of big city amenities (dining, shopping, etc.). Also, the U of A has some great professors that really know what they are talking about. But, there are also some bad ones.

Anthony

I feel the best aspect of my school is the newly found diversity. The campus is extremely welcoming and has a great environment. Almost everyone throughout the campus is very nice, which is not what I expected. I honestly expected some racisim, but so far I havnt seen or heard much of that.

Elizabeth

It is arguably the best college in the state of Arkansas. Many famous people have attended here in the past. It is highly recognized, and you can expect to earn a respectable degree here.

April

Quality of education. I am a student of the Sam Walton School of Business and find it's resources extremely valuable. I feel that I will get an excellent job upon my graduation

Lacey

I love the atmosphere. Its up in the mountains yet beside a thriving urban city. It has everything. Fayetteville is still really small and quaint and has definite personality from "the olden days" while Springdale is a growing modern city that has infiltrated and merged with Fayetteville and created a great city with definite character. And then the mountains and trails and views are spectacular. Many take your breath away, watching them change in the fall and spring is amazing. Its so perfect for studying, hanging out, and/or venturing around whether in town or in the wilderness.

Rebecca

The student environment is so vibrant and alive, there are so many diverse people on this campus, its just absolutely amazing and upbeat. There is never a dull moment, and everyone is so friendly. The student body is what I consider the best thing about my school.

Dominic

I consider the school pride to be one of the best things about my school. The energy here is really genuinely palpable. Also, I like the fact that my school is large enough to provide me ample opportunity to interact with individuals from so many different backgrounds.

Holly

The sense of community and pride is the best thing about the University of Arkansas

Timothy

The best thing about the University of Arkansas would have to be the teachers and pestige of the Architecture program that I have been enrolled in. It is a very stimulating program, and also very, very challenging. It is able to keep my interest, overwhelm me at time, but I love every second of it.

Lucas

the best thing about my school is the greek life, classes, and the mind set of the people that go here!

Cory

it's a great school if you want to suceed in life.

Justin

The diversity among the building, professors, classes, people.... The UofA has something for most people and as it continues to expand, it provides more and more for everyone.

Michael

I think that there are great oppurtunities to explore a variety of ideas and cultural mindsets at our school. A variety of honors courses and other classes centered around philosophy and thought allow students to explore ideas that they may not have been exposed to before college. The inclusion of a Buddhist monk as a professor is one excellent example of how the College of Arts and Sciences brings in a variety of instructors. Students can take classes that interest them and allow them to broaden their horizons.

Brooke

That the classes are small enough that the teacher can know you on a first name bases and can help you with any problems you might be having with the class.

Ashley

It is a state campus, but it is not too big. It is the perfect size to know people on campus but not to know everyone you pass. And the environment is amazing. Campus is beautiful. On any given day you can find a tree to study under or a fountain to hang out by.

Kate

The tradition on the campus. We have a 5+ mile long senior walk with all the names of the graduates in the past, we have our sporting events which are always full of students

McKenzi

The best thing about attending the University of Arkansas is job placement after graduation. Being so close to the Wal-Mart home offices, recruiters from Wal-Mart and all of its main vendors and always coming to the U of A looking for upcoming talent. The Walton College of Business really does its best to put of job fairs and helps students with their resumes to give students the best chance of getting a good job post graduation.

Jennifer

Diverse

Lucinda

I think the best thing about The University of Arkansas is the diversity of ages of the students attending. I am in my middle 40s and I have been accepted with no problem. There are students much younger than me and older than me and everyone is treated equally.
