Life in Clarksville, Ark. is not the liveliest. The town is no place for younger kids, teens, college students, older adults, or the elderly to have fun. Everyone has to invent their own form of entertainment, or they have to spend money on gas and an activity in another town. It’s very inconvenient for people who come to this school to not have anything to relieve the stress from classes and course work. A lot of students make it a regular tradition to go home on the weekends, due to how little there is in Clarksville.
The Student Life Office and the Campus Activities Board (CAB) organize activities to keep students engaged on campus, but people still would rather go to a different town to hang out. Clarksville does not have many nearby attractions of interest for college students, so it is hard to persuade people to stay on campus over the weekend. Due to the lack of entertainment for the residents at the University, money and joining an organization are necessities if a person doesn’t want to be bored all year. Even though there is not much to do, the education students receive is totally worth it.
