4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Upperclassmen Get Better Dorms – The dorm life at Arkansas Tech is OK, with many of my friends living in and around me. I am looking forward to the apartments next Fall, though

Health & Safety: No Opinion Here – I have never felt unsafe at this campus, and I sometimes do many of my activities after dark that require me to walk across the campus.

Off-Campus Dining: The Campus Tries Its Best to Keep Its Students Happy – There are tons of options, but wish there was more fresh fruits and varieties of different eating options available. Having most of the options so close to the campus is a big plus.

Local Atmosphere: Everything Went Just Fine My First Year – I love the small college atmosphere and the professors, except one, seem to know a lot abut what they are teaching. I have been surprised at how accessible they all are, and how they want me to succeed.

Greek Life: Greek Is an Option Not a Necessity – Greek life is an option at ATU but it does not define the campus. Greeks don't outcast the non-Greeks. Everyone is pretty friendly and accepting.

Off-Campus Dining: Plenty of Options – There are plenty of different places to eat almost all of them offer at least a 10% discount and some places even offer more than that. La Huertas, New China, McDonald's, Taco Bell, Arby's, KFC, Wendy's, Colton's, Ruby Tuesday, IHOP, Burger King, Cracker Barrel, Dixie Cafe, CJ's Burgers, and Feltners Whattaburger are all very close to campus. LH is cheap, quick, and delicious. Definitely a campus favorite!

Athletics: Two Campuses – My school's main campus has a wonderful sports facility and school spirit is amazing! However I attend another campus where we have no sports or any type of athletic facility. We do have a walking trail and a disc golf course, but nothing other than that.

Athletics: The football team needs a little "team work" so they can win. But all other sports have been winning championships for the past four years.

Facilities: Some of the sidewalks are really bad which can be tricky if you are disabled but they are working on them some at a time. Doc Bryan, the student center, has a lot to do with places to eat and even a tutoring center so you can get help with your homework. They recently closed the pool so that's one less option for a physical education course if that's what you like to do, but they have some other really great choices. There are a lot of activities to do throughout the week and they always do things for the students to help them unwind and stay relaxed during midterm and finals weeks. They have a pretty huge library as well!

Facilities: Social Scene – Tech's campus is awesome as far as things to do, there is always something going on somewhere on campus so it's almost impossible to get bored if you live on campus or in town. The University prides itself on their sports and their sporting events are always really fun!

Transportation: They are currently doing construction on a side road to campus which makes traffic horrible. You usually have to park quite a ways away from your building unless you get there really early. Public transportation of some sort would be nice, like a bus for in-town students so that they don't have to drive their own vehicles and take up spots that the commuters could use.

Drug Safety: I don't live on campus but as far as I have seen there is no major drug problem. Drinking on the other hand is just about every weekend, but hey college is supposed to be fun right!

Local Atmosphere: I love that Russellville has lots of places to shop. So after I get done with a hard day of studying I can go unwind with some much needed shopping with friends.

Local Atmosphere: Local Attitude Towards Students – I love the Russellville area because almost all businesses are behind the students at Arkansas Tech University. Most even give discounts if you show your College ID!!

Campus Strictness: They are very strict and you will probably get caught. They do have room checks. Your first office you'll probably get wrote a warning and maybe a small fine. There are strict curfew rules for having people in your room.

Nightlife: Night Life – Night life is poor. It is a dry county but there are a couple resturants that do have liquor licens. There is one club but it is very trashy. House partys usually get busted and are very crowded because not many go on.

Health & Safety: There have been numerous of incedents that could have been avoided. The campus needs better lighting and less shrubs around the buildings. They have put up quite a few emergency poles but they have been up for about 6 months and still do not work. I use to feel very secure till all the incedents that started happening two years ago.
