3 College Student

Campus Food: There is quite a bit of option but the dining halls close at odd times, especially on weekends so it can be hard to get a variety

3 College Student

Campus Housing: Definitely very cramped sometimes. It can be had to connect to the internet in some buildings

Scholarships: Could be more forthcoming with money and have more options

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Since one has to eat, it's okay

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: Athletics are awesome here! Both varsity and intramurals, there's always something for everyone and usually a good showing at the events! I love attending football, basketball, and baseball games and calling the hogs!

Greek Life: There are so many houses on campus, almost everyone finds their place. If being Greek isn't for you, it is also not a deal breaker. You can still have fun on campus. Greek life does provide a home away from home. It provides connections and it teaches you great social skills!

Off-Campus Housing: Most apartment complexes do a great job of providing a safe, modern place to live. However, the prices are starting to rise to ridiculous levels and it's hard to understand why!

Off-Campus Dining: Fayetteville has great local restaurants with tons of variety! There are so many restaurants I still want to try even though I eat out a ton! With some many options, and most of it is really good, you can't go wrong!

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: I have a very full social calendar so I don't spend much time at parties but from my experience, there's always room for improvement.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: There are times when the campus strictness is at the right level. However, when it comes to parking, they are too strict. There needs to be more flexibility in the places students can park as it becomes inconvenient at times, especially when it is really cold outside!

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: There should be more scholarships available to out of state students. I had a pretty strong high school GPA and my ACT scores were good and I received no scholarships despite applying for them!

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: The dining halls could use some help when it comes to the quality of their food. It is often cold or bland. The union food should offer more healthy options for meal trade as the halls close really early and only really offer fast food. I wanted to avoid the Freshman 15 and that didn't help!

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Some dorms are really spacious and updated and modern, while others are dark and outdated. The bathrooms could use some updating but a cleaned every day so there is never a problem there! Some dorms just lack that feeling of "home" but with some paint and brighter furniture that could change!

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: closer the more expensive and more difficult to get to campus due to traffic or lack of bus stops

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Need more hearty options. Fast food is convenient but far from healthy

3 College Junior

Administration: Too strict on parking...hardly any student parking and lots dwindling by the day. ticket pricing outrageous. and students required to move from paid parking locations for VISITORS so that the university may earn additional money for ALREADY PURCHASED parking spots at the inconvenience of students resulting in relocating and towing(ive experienced both and am it is extremely unsettling)

Scholarships: scholarships other than need based are hard to find and obtain

3 College Junior

Campus Food: If one diner was open after hours or a possible meal to go option after 11pm was available it would greatly benefit students, since we are constantly up late at night studying, socialized etc.

Campus Housing: Ultimately on campus housing fails when it comes to pricing, social atmosphere and amenities (in regard to parking mainly)

They are overpriced for offering minimal space, with little to no amenities, little to no social atmosphere due to rare gathering spaces, and horrible parking!

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: The cost of close apartment is outrageous. Obviously, the further off campus the lower prices get. With new apartment complexes going up, hopefully it will be an easier process.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There is a lot of fast food. Nothing stays open very late either. I wish more school accepted student discounts as well.

5 College Freshman

Party Scene: I enjoy going to the fraternity houses. I am apart of greek life, so I like going out with all my friends.

4 College Freshman

Administration: Parking is horrible at the University of Arkansas.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: There are scholarship opportunities through my school. These scholarships, however, are limited. Financial Aid through my state was horrible. I did not get that much and it was a headache of a process.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: I enjoyed Fulbright. However, I do wish they stayed open later. Meal trades are nice, but they are limited. I wish Au Bon Pan allowed meal trades other than in the morning.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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!
