I love the atmosphere at SAU. It is like everyone knows everyone and it is a huge family all coming together. One thing I would like to see changed is more food options. The cafe is always so packed with students.

This school was never my first pick, but the generous scholarship they offered me convinced me to move far away from home and pursue a degree here. Thus far my college experience has been amazing. Professors here do care about individual students. It is a small campus, so you make friends quickly and can find things easily. The classes are all different, as some are ridiculously easy and some are ridiculously hard. The biggest pitfall is the small town of Magnolia. There isn't much to do, but Shreveport and Texarkana aren't too far.

Southern Arkansas University is a fast-growing public University in Arkansas, but she is far from perfect. The student-faculty ratio is good, our professors are great! but there's no transportation system around, one needs a personal car to live well here. Campus food is nice but can be crappy sometimes, oh, athletics ! I like all sports activities going on here!
