3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Hard finding any thanks to being a private school.

1 College Junior

Transportation: What school-provided transportation that exists is usually used only for taking the Latino students to Walmart.

5 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: There is no big drug addiction at clarksville. There is a bit of a drinking problem but that it.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: Our campus is strict against drugs and underage drinking. U of O is a alcohol free campus and first time offenders gets a letter sent home and a warning. Second time offenders get fined and third timers get sent home. It is serious if you get caught, so in other words just don't do it.

5 College Sophomore

Diversity: At the university of the Ozarks it is like a small family and there is a ton of different races and religions. There is a great comprise and has a wonderful mood about the place.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: If you are interested in attending a small, private university with excellent academics and a great support network, this is the place!

5 College Junior

Facilities: The professors are great. Some are harder than others but at a school like Ozarks when you are encouraged to push past your comfort zone and do the best you can, it's nice having a professor that is also a good friend. They have a great open door policy and are truly dedicated to the students success inside and outside of the classroom.

3 College Junior

Diversity: There are many students from different countries, ethnic origins, religious background and sexual orientation. The campus has an overall positive feeling for individuals from all backgrounds.

5 College Junior

Parking: The campus isn't too big so there is always a spot somewhere within decent distance to any building.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There are a few inexpensive options around campus. The great thing is that most of the restaurants are very accomodating to students. It doesn't take long to drive to nearby Russellville where there are lots of options.

4 Recent Alumnus

Parking: There has always been plenty of parking available on campus, though it may not be in the most convenient spot (you may have walk across campus or up a hill to get to class).

5 Recent Alumnus

Health & Safety: The campus takes pride in being a very safe place to live, and I've never once felt unsafe here. Security is available 24/7, and the protocols for campus emergencies are widely publicized.

3 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Dining: For a small town, the off campus dining options are pretty good.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: I feel safe on campus, but since its an open campus, there are sometimes people that arent students around, but they are not a threat

3 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Clarkville is really small but it close to Fort Smith. If you wanted you could go there to have fun.

4 College Freshman

Computers: They are good for doing simple papers but closer to finals alot of the computer seem slow and not many are open to use.

3 College Sophomore

Nightlife: No Clubs – There are no clubs in the area but alot of house parties

3 College Freshman

Campus Dining: Eagle's Nest – I love going to the Eagle's Nest because an old friend of mine who used to be my assistant in elementary school now works there so seeing her is fun.

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Average Town – There's really not much to do here unless you go looking for things to do. There's a walking trail, several restaurants with several ethnicies to choose from, all the basic discount stores (Fred's, Family Dollar, Dollar General, Dollar Tree), Wal-Mart, Stage, Factory Connection, Hibbett Sports, and a decent movie theater if you're bored. You just have to go looking for things to do.

4 College Freshman

Computers: Personal Computer a Must! A personal computer is a must but that's a plus because you're not stuck n a packed library or student center with a bunch of noise when you're trying to study.

3 College Freshman

Weather: Storms throughout the year as it typically does anywhere else but not much snow, well not over the last few years. Been in an excessive drought since May and it's finally stormed most of the evening tonight. No real spring or fall seasons with living in a valley, it's either too hot or too cold.

1 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: The food here is not great. It used to be worse but it has improved a bit. There is a lot to choose from but it's not great and sometimes it's really terrible. There is a on-campus cafe that's open when the caf is not, but it's really expensive. So if you're broke and you miss dinner, better go mooch off your roommate. That or starve.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: We have LOTS of foreign exchange students from Central America. However, the vast majority of the student body is comprised of white people.

5 College Sophomore

Weather: The climate in Arkansas is pretty mild. Sometimes it snows in the winter, and every now and then it rains pretty heavily, but for the most part, it's sunny and a bit humid. The weather hardly ever affects classes, unless it snows a lot. The dorms are close to the class buildings so even when it's raining, traversing campus isn't a big deal. Just make sure you buy an umbrella.

1 College Sophomore

Nightlife: I think there is one bar. Just one. And it's 21 and up. There are a couple guys that throw parties on a regular basis and they're alright if you're interested in drinking, but it's "bring your own beer" so if you're underage, good luck. That's about it. Not even the fast food restaurants stay open late. It sucks!

The University of the Ozarks has an excellent, top-grade, and awesome education. The University is different from any other school you'll ever visit. Academics is number one, and extracurricular activities come second. The workload may be intense and massive, but the teachers push the students to their absolute potential. Everyone wants each person to succeed. By the time the students graduate, they are properly prepared for graduate studies or the professional workforce. The social networking system at the University is essential, as it is important for students to connect for future job references that could possibly help them with job opportunities later on. Internships are vital to some majors, and professors continually encourage students to apply for internships, summer jobs, or study abroad programs. Professors perform their job, help students within and outside their majors, and constantly promote the University.

The help students receive at the University of the Ozarks is unlike any other. Through the JLC (Jones Learning Center), students with learning or physical disabilities are assisted with homework, while the SSS (Student Support Services) lab and the ACE (Academic Center for Excellence) lab also provide help for students. The Career Services office offers students resume assistance, job finding skills, tips for better interviewing, reading materials about current jobs, and job and internship search websites. Overall, the University promotes success and gives students so many opportunities to succeed. However, attending U of O takes passion and a lot of determination for students to prosper and grow in their education.
