College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I am an off campus graduate student. I have not experienced on campus housing at my university. Graduate housing is not an option.

3 College Junior

Party Scene: I haven't been to any fraternity parties but I've heard they are fun. I like to throw my own house parties and those always are fun. The party life has a positive impact on the students. These parties give us a reason to unwind and relax after a hard week of studying.

Campus Food: I hear a lot about the food on campus, most of it is negative but I honestly do like the food. It has good taste and different foods each day. My favorite is sweet and sour chicken on Fridays. I hate that flex doesn't role over but you can always get razorbucks and those rollover. They are pretty close to being the same thing.

Campus Housing: I love loving on campus. Everything you need is within a 5 min walking distance. The dorms are very nice and clean. The dorm life is a lot of fun too. I have loved my college life and the University of Arkansas has done well to show to me that it is a great school to attend. Social atmosphere here is great everyone is nice and most of them have that southern hospitality attitude toward all new and old people. As for the price of living on campus is roughly the same as loving off campus. Extra bonus for living on campus is that it is the closest you can get to your classes. Cost of the University on the other hand is not the cheapest especially if you go to the Walton College of Business. Great College but more expensive then it should be.

Off-Campus Housing: The off campus housing is great at the University of Arkansas because there are so many options.

Off-Campus Dining: The variety of options that we have is great! The places close to campus are also don't cost too much to go to.

3 College Freshman

Administration: Parking is enforced way too strictly when they could be focusing on more important issues, such as why it only snows at Kappa Sig.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: It took a while to get my financial aid all figured out.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: The party scene here is great because we throw good parties that everyone loves, but they don't get out of hand. The fraternities are smart about it, and shut it down when they need to.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: The quality of food that we pay for is not what we are receiving at the dining halls. while paying around nine dollars for a meal, we should get more for our money.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: living on campus is great because you are close to all of your classes. Living in the dorms is great for your freshman year because it helps you get to know people.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I hate where I live.

Party Scene: Thursday-Saturday you will most likely find a few good parties to go to. The quality of the parties isn't awesome considering they are college parties and people like to get rowdy. The best parties that I go to are either hosted by one of my friends, or I like going to the fraternity, BETA's parties because the guys are so nice and they aren't creepy. They always have DD's and if you need help with something, there is always a few guys there to help you out.

Off-Campus Dining: They have lots of really good restaurants. The cost for most of them is average which is good considering a college students budget. The variety is great! You could find a couple restaurants for any type of cuisine you desire. My favorite places to go eat are Hammontrees grilled cheese, Wasabi, and Ginger.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I lived in Yocum my freshman year and despite it being old and worn down, I made some of the best friends there. I loved living on campus.

4 College Freshman

Academics: There are many possibilities and cool majors to study at the school. The registration process is easy just make sure you make an appointment. the workload depends on which classes you take. The professors are all really cool for the most part.

4 College Freshman

Administration: The Strictness of Alcohol and drugs on campus is really good. When you are on campus alcohol and drugs shouldn't be allowed and the school does a great job at preventing underage drinking and the overall health of students with the RA program.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I had an okay academic experience. I recently joined the CEA program on campus to help with my learning disabilities and my professors were very helpful during it.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Recently there was a bomb threat and the school police handled it very well. A few days after there was an armed robbery and the school notified all of its student to make them aware. It is very helpful.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Its just like any other place you have to be careful

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: It's cheaper than staying on campus and better parking

3 College Freshman

Academics: My program keeps me very busy and I am always studying to keep my grades up

4 College Freshman

Majors: I enjoy the program I am in because it is very hands on, fun activities, and great people. My program keeps me busy making it somewhat hard to get a job and participate in my extra curricular activities.

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!
