4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Classes have very different expectations

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The courses are not easy. We do need to work hard, but that is not the problem. The professors may be really nice, but really need to improve in teaching skills. Many of them do not know how to teach. They usually skim through important topics and spend longer time on facts that we may not need to know for the class. Majority of them need to give more examples and show how to work the problem.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The employers are very nice and helpful.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I only remember hearing about the safety of students once. Not much trouble has happened on campus.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Overall, courses and professors were great, some of them weren't, but that is expected. Courses were pretty interesting, especially the upper level courses. The professors in the upper level courses were very good.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: A lot of people must go on to graduate school, just to make use of their degree, or to get a good paying job. This is one negative aspect, but there are positive aspects to it as well.

5 College Senior

Health & Safety: There are usually always campus police patrolling the campus. One night I got off work late, and I had to park a ways away, and as I was walking to my dorm, a police officer pulled up and offered me a ride, I denied it, because I was close to my dorm, but knowing he was there made me feel safe, even in the dark.

4 College Senior

Campus Housing: life on campus is great, it's so convenient for classes, and you really don't have to worry about much.

3 College Senior

Greek Life: The greek life is huge, it seems as though there are more greeks than non-greeks.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Majority of the time greek students usually hang out with other greek students. Not many hang out with non-greek students.

4 College Senior

Athletics: Great facilities, definitely some of the best I've seen.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: It's very expensive, and they charge you way too much for everything. Other than that, the school is great, I've learned a lot from all the professors, and I really do enjoy most of my classes.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: I am not into sports, so I do not know much about it on our campus.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Not only is the education great, but also the environment. Everyone is nice and friendly. There are a lot of events that go on at campus where we can meet new people. I have made many friends and have enjoyed my time there.

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: I feel safe overall on campus. A few of the rape cries were fictional. The ones who were indeed real happened at the Fraternity houses such as Sigma Alpha Epsilon whose parties never get shut down. The young women who were raped were drunk and taken advantage of and nothing happens after the rape is reported. Other than that, people are rarely robbed, mugged, or beat up for merchandise on campus.

Overall Experience: Some professors make the course hard for no reason. For example, I'm in a freshman level course and it's harder than my senior level courses. Some professors are really mean when it comes to missing class. You could be dying and your absence still wouldn't be excused. There are a few great professors who genuinely care.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: It depends on your field. Engineering, business, marketing have the best chances to find jobs and internships. It's harder for psychology majors.

Campus Housing: It depends on where you are. They need to renovate Buch-Droke and gladson and ripley because they had mold during the summer and roaches.

Overall Experience: Parking sucks! The parking and transit department makes more money than professors by overcharging for parking, parking permits, constantly giving out tickets, and giving out boots. The only thing good about this school is that it challenges you to do better because if you don't, you will fail horribly. Some students are openly racist and that becomes difficult to deal with when working within groups. Other than all that, college is what you make it. No matter the place, you can always make a situation better.

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!
