My first year, I stayed in the newest built residence hall. Everything was nice , and well kept . I loved it! People in the dorms took great care of what they were given. Semi-private bathrooms, spacious rooms, everything you needed to feel comfortable. This upcoming year, I'll be staying in a newly remodeled hall , and by the pictures , it looks extremely nice! I'm ready!

Honestly, the parking is horrible. There are 10,000+ students attending this college at all different times of the day some village but mostly dorm, most all have vehicles. But when it comes to finding a spot, there is dangerous road rage for a last minute spot especially at corley. They need to winden some areas and lay out more parking for the Yellow hang tag(village) students. Even arriving 30 minutes early people there before you aren't done with class yet and still no parking. This issue needs to be fixed asap!

The nursing program here at Arkansas Tech University is quite amazing. The teachers are always readily available for helping the students understand material, and are never afraid to come to you first to question your grade and make sure you are where you need to be, academically. The clinical instructors are very knowledgeable and you learn so much from them! Not to brag, but the passing rate of ATU Nursing is 97%. Thats 64/66 students that pass the NCLEX the first time after graduation!
