Local Atmosphere: Great University in a Great Small Town! The students and faculty at Ark. Tech are very friendly and supportive. The local businesses and town members support the students greatly! When you come to Russellville as a student you are made to feel like this is your home town!

Academics: There are a wide range of classes and degrees offered. It's a smaller university, but great for many degrees. The classes are smaller, which means a little more teaching towards what is needed for each individual, rather than teaching collectively and quickly for a group of 300. Many successfull graduates from Arkansas Tech University recommend going there for the academics.

Nightlife: Night Life on Campus – I don't know just yet. I personally do not party, but I also haven't gotten to campus yet. I'll be moving in next week, and as far as I've heard, there are not too many parties.

Transportation: Arkansas Tech is a small campus. Everything is within walking distance or a bike ride. Therefore, there is no need for trolleys, buses, etc.

Greek Life: There are several sororities and fraternities at Arkansas Tech. Many students are involved in them, but definitely not the majority. It's not a big deal if you're involved or not.

Health & Safety: I feel very safe at Arkansas Tech. Within the last year, there have been a couple reports of sexual assault on campus. Public safety is taking more measures to ensure students' safety. I never feel very scared or threatened. I just take precautions by walking in well-lit areas at night and making sure that I'm not alone.

Campus Housing: Campus Life = Amazing! Everyone on campus is given the opportunity to live in a nice dorm. Even freshmen have a reserved number of rooms in each dorm. The favorite place for suite style dorms is Nutt, while the favorite community style is Turner. Each living area has it's quirks, like Wilson with it's old heat registers, or Nutt with it's closed windows. With each quirk there is a positive to balance it out. The community and family/friend atmosphere is in each dorm on Tech campus. Overall campus life is the BOMB!

Campus Dining: Just Normal – Tech offers a small variety of dining options and is currently improving those options. The "caf" is, of course, the most popular and common place to eat. The food quality for the caf is actually fairly well! As usual, there are the bad days, but there has never been a day where I haven't found at least something to eat. The other spot on campus is Doc's. Doc's has a Blimpie, pizza place, and the All-Star Grill. Each place to eat is very good and out of all the time I have been, I haven't been disappointed, unless they're out of banana peppers. Tech is also currently going under construction for a new student union! Which is going to improve the variety by adding Chick-Fil-A and a Starbucks.

Computers: Actually... Great! The computer labs are never full to where you cant find a space to work at. The library computers have many likable features that most can't afford on their personal laptops. As for printing, when you are a freshman you receive a set number of free prints which come in handy! The wireless on Tech campus is very widespread. The only problem would be at certain times the internet will run very slow! Other than that, the computer services on campus are very amazing and up to date!

Scholarships: Tech gives quite a few scholarships. It is fairly easy to get in touch with the financial aid officers and the process is a smooth one usually.

Off-Campus Housing: East Gate – My apartment is within walking distance to school. The unit itself is attractive and spacious. It was very clean and the upkeep is minimal.

Campus Dining: Off Campus – i am a non traditional student and live off campus. i have not eaten at the dining hall. Choices of places to eat are mainly fast food around the university. I for the most part eat a sandwich at my apartment, go out to eat maybe once a week at Mc Donald's.

Local Atmosphere: AR Tech Cultural Events – International students are abundant here at AT. I live in an off campus apartment and students from Syria, Saudi Arabia, Japan, China, and Venezuela are my neighbors. All are very pleasant and a joy to be around.

Parking: The Availability and convience of parking spaces suck here at Arkansas Tech. Sometimes people have to park at the parking lot at a different dorm just to be able to get to yours. Then you got to walk a really long way to get to your car. Also, I've heard from alot of my off-campus friends that they would have to skip class simply because they couldn't find a parking space.

Health & Safety: Campus Crime – Last semester there was a lot of talk about a rapest around campus. I think they had two or three total female victoms. It was pretty scary. The campus police were out all the time though and that made things feel a little better. This semester I havn't heard anything about it yet so im hoping its taken care of.

Academics: The proffessors here are great so far. I havn't had one yet that I didn't like. If I need help I know I could go to any of them and they would help with whatever I need. That is really important to me too.

Overall Experience: A- TU – Tech is a good school. I transferred here in Spring 2010. The only real downfall is by that time all of the people in my class have friends and don't want to add someone new. The teachers are for the most part very helpful and want to see you succeed. The caf offers many options, even if all that looks good is cereal some days. The student activity board is always trying to come up with something to interest the students. Overall, it's a great school. It's affordable and an experience you will never forget.

Nightlife: Just Sleep – Nightlife for the student at Tech is near non-exisistent. The only places open at night would be Wal-Mart, IHOP, Denny's, and Waffle House. There is more to do at night on campus just hanging out with friends in the dorm. But even the dorms have curfews so that leaves you with the issue of not many places to go hang out. I did; however, recently discover a place where you can play pool till 2am. I am from this area and just discovered it so I know that people who go to school here and aren't from here don't know about it. It would be a great college hang out if they did though.

Guys & Girls: Social Butterfly – Social life in the town of Russellville is definitely something to be desired. We do have a good theatre, but other than that and bowling there isn't much to do. The new Hog Wild offers some option, but I don't think many students know about it. But everything closes between nine and eleven so that leaves nothing to do for the college student who lives for the night. Wal-Mart offers the option to walk around and shop, which can prove to be interesting. IHOP, Denny's, and Waffle House offer places to sit, eat, and even study at night. Other than that; however, there is not much to do for the college student's night life.
