4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The dorms on campus are old definitely but they work hard to keep them updated. There are fun spots in all the dorms to hang out and study.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: Arkansas provides a lot of majors and minors. You have to go to your counselor to discuss with them, because they are great resources in learning about all the opportunities.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: I love my program. There are not many students in it, so class sizes are still small. They also have a lot of programs to join once there.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I've never felt unsafe on campus. Even late at night it is well lit and there are lots of people around.

4 College Sophomore

Nightlife: Arkansas has great nightlife. There are fun parties all the time. The fraternity houses and bars are all close to campus.

5 College Sophomore

Facilities: I absolutely love our campus. It has beautiful landscaping and they are constantly updating it. The library and union are great places and there are so many places on campus to study and hang out.

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Everyone on campus is super friendly. There are a lot of religious people, but they are open to anyone. I do not personally know many LBGT people, but most people on campus would be accepting of that.

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Fayetteville is your average college town. The main street--Dixon, is right off campus, walking distance for most students. They have great restaurants and bars for students to attend, but are strict on IDs, so underage drinking does not occur here.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: The school has unfortunately had some problems in the past year with synthetic drugs, and therefore are becoming stricter. There is underage drinking, but the RA's are trained to report any they see.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: We definitely could use some diversification. It is a very southern school with southern mindsets.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: The closest off campus housing is corporate apartments set up nearby, such as Sterling Frisco, the Cardinal, the Vue, etc. They are all new buildings and have very nice resources, but are all pricey.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: We aren't spectacular at any specific sport but everyone loves to watch anyway.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life on campus plays a large part in pep rallys, fundraising and on-campus activities.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: At the UofA, people are always excited about the sports going on. Whatever season it is and whether the teams are doing good or bad, it seems like the fans stay loyal and always have a good time supporting the Hogs!

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I received a good amount of financial aid from the UofA and through all of it, the experience with the counselors has been great. They will help you in any area.

3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: The campus strictness is just like any other major University. There are rules on everything, but the most strict thing at the UofA would probably be parking.

4 College Freshman

Facilities: I am a new student at the UofA, but I have always grown up around it so I know a lot on what the University is about. It is a great place for all students. The campus is beautiful and they are always trying to do something to make it even better. No matter what your major is or what clubs you want to be in, you will fit in at the University of Arkansas!

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: The Razorbacks make you UofA experience what it is. Win or lose Razorback fans are die hard, whether its intramural or varsity. Its hard to be humble when you are a Razorback fan!

Off-Campus Housing: Off-campus housing is a big thing when it comes to students at the UofA. Many students move off campus because the cost is less and the ease of access to campus is still great. There are many options for every budget and need. Most apartments are near the bus routes, and many houses are near to them as well. There is no need to worry about safety because Fayetteville is a great town to be in, and everyone looks out for their neighbors.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: The most important part of the admissions process is to be unique with your essay for scholarships. Be you and let your positive qualities shine. I am an Education major and we do not get accepted into the Masters of Education program until sophomore year. However, even though we have to go through an additional process it is laid out easily for students online and when talking to an adviser. Best advice is to talk to your adviser as much as possible, get to know them and create a relationship with them so they understand exactly where you are coming from and what your goals are.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: The education program at the UofA is fantastic. There are opportunities to go into schools and help decide exactly what age group you are comfortable with. The faculty are wonderful and willing to help with whatever problems you are having. They are more than willing to help you look for jobs and internships. The advisers in the College of Education are the best. They give you stories of their experience and help you with any questions you have about the industry, classes, or how to find a job.

College Sophomore

Scholarships: I didn't apply for financial aid since I am an international student. With that said, the people I know that have financial aid said the process was easy and there were many people to help them throughout the process.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: You get what you pay for on campus, saying that the best places to live are the traditional dorms which are also the cheapest. They have the best atmosphere and it is a great opportunity to get to know your peers. When you live on campus its easy to get around, especially once you get used to the hills. The best part about the housing process is Roommate Profiler, you get paired with a roommate and you get to communicate with them before you move in together. Its a great way to get to know the person you are moving in with before meeting them in person.

5 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Fayetteville is a great town to live in. Everyone is welcoming and you feel like you are at home the moment you arrive. The school adds diversity and action to the town which is great! The scenery is the best part about Fayetteville. There are enough parks and trails to visit to keep even the biggest adventure seeker busy. The Ozarks are nearby and the Buffalo River isn't far away, and are great tourist attractions or even a great place to relax while you study. If you like the outdoors Arkansas has plenty for you to do, and plenty for you to do and see once you come back into the city.

College Sophomore

Greek Life: I'm not involved in Greek life but many of my friends are. There is no animosity between the two groups and you don't need to be involved in Greek life to have fun! They are also very inclusive of non-Greeks.

Sometimes, the first-year experience in the dorm can really depend on the roommate. Roommates can end up in each other's weddings or end up as gossip fodder for friends and classmates. Freshman year can be a little overwhelming. The best thing to do is keep an open mind and remember that everyone else is in the same boat. Students are the master of their own college experience, so they shouldn't just sit in their dorm rooms playing Call of Duty. Joining a fraternity or sorority is one way to meet people. In addition, there are more than 350 registered student organizations on campus; there should be something for everybody, and if not, students can always start their own club. It's easy!

Arkansas will prepare students for whatever major they choose, but once again, this is college. Students are not living in their parents' house anymore; they have to do their own laundry and force themselves to go to class. "Ninety percent of success is showing up," as Woody Allen once said, and this saying applies with going to class. Some teachers keep attendance, but most don't. It's easy to get carried away with the party scene and flunk out, but students who try hard and show up to class will be fine. The University provides everything you could ever need to succeed at your fingertips—you just have to grab it!
