WHAT I LIKED

The campus facility is very welcoming, helpful, and open. Since my first year of being in Fayetteville, the overall environment of the campus is very lively and active. There is never a dull moment on campus.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The campus and social life are very greek life-oriented, therefore if you do not join greek life, it may be difficult to find friends that are not preoccupied with Greek organizations.

WHAT I LIKED

I am honestly extremely glad that I decided to attend the University of Arkansas. I have never regretted it for a second, and I think the University of Arkansas was definitely the best choice for me. The professors are very clear in their teaching, and very helpful to students who have questions or concerns.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

There is not much that I do not like about the University of Arkansas. The main thing is that many of the dining halls close over the weekend.

WHAT I LIKED

The teachers are all established in their fields and very interested in helping students one-on-one. There are lots of different on-campus food options and there are plenty of easy-to-access resources available.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The dorm halls are mostly outdated, with heating and cooling systems that either leave half the building at 80 degrees or 60 degrees. Also, the campus is situated on top of a hill and that climb is hellish.

4.0

WHAT I LIKED

The affordability of a great school with an amazing academic program. There are plenty of internship opportunities and the University as a whole is slowly becoming one of the top non-ivy league schools.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

It is a PWI, there are a lot of great organizations to be a part of. The University over the last few years has taken a larger stride to work to create a more diverse community, but still has a ways to go.
