3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I am currently not in a sorority so it is hard for me to say what it is like. But I have multiple friends that are apart of greek life and they love it and no one will treat you differently if you arent apart of greek life.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: The school spirit is insane in the SEC but especially at the University of Arkansas, people wait in line hours before the big games to make sure they can get a spot up front, even in the cold and rain.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: All advisors from financial aid to choosing your class schedule are super helpful. The teachers are always helpful and are quick to email you back when you have a question. The whole atmosphere on campus is very enjoyable and always a joy to go to class and interact with everyone on campus. Also the library and writing centers are super helpful when you nee to use their resources.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Its a big campus and sometimes its hard to keep such a large university safe but my friends and I have never had an issue. Generally safe

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Some of the best classes are hard to get into but Class sizes were great and I received attention so far from all my professors.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Daily updates from BAS sends internships and other great opportunities.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I stayed in Pomfret my freshman year. It was very small but I dealt with it. I hated the fact it was so far from the Union or the Center of Campus.

Athletics: We dont always win but our students support out Athletics no matter what!

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: College has been the best experience yet!

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The campus police is great. The only times I feel unsafe is if I'm walking alone at night all the way to Lot 56 because of the homeless community that is close in that area.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: This University is amazing. It's everything I thought it would be and more. I have made the best of friends with people that went to a rival school that I wouldn't of even thought about hanging out with if it wasn't for the U of A.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life is huge at the U of A, but not a thing you have to do to enjoy your time as a student

5 College Freshman

Athletics: It's the SEC we have some of the best facilitates in the nation!

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love the university but coming from a really structured school that didn't give students much freedom to do their own thing and make their own choices makes it tough to adapt

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: They have an entire building to physical activities

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Great Engineering program, best in Arkansas

3 College Junior

Drug Safety: People definitely do it but other than alcohol it's not awful

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: Campus security is pretty good, with police presence pretty visible which keeps everyone more in line in my opinion.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: Some classes that are designed to be in smaller settings are still given hundreds of students which makes it almost impossible to understand. The TAs and drill seasons try to help but other classes don't have drills which puts a lot of stress on the students who deserve better accommodations.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The alumni network from Arkansas is huge, and there are many job fairs but I dint see many people actually getting opportunities from these sessions.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: The bad dorms are really bad. Overall it's overpriced like most dorms at most college. The furniture is dirty and floors have stains and trash everywhere and they smell. The newer dorms are obviously better but ridiculous in price and still not very clean. Laundry machines break a lot but maintenance requests are looked into fairly quickly.

2 College Junior

Greek Life: People are pretty segregated. Greek life is huge and it seems like everyone is involved when in reality they are a minority on campus.

4 College Junior

Athletics: Turn out at football especially is large, basketball has less of a focus and not many people care about any other sports on campus at all.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: There is a lot of emphasis on outside of the classroom activities and school does not seem to be the. Focus of many students here. Some teachers have given up completely and no longer care, but some are still very invested and make an effort to actually teach for the world rather than for an exam.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

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!
