Health & Safety: I've only been here for about a month but I feel completely safe during the day tonwalk around by myself and mostly safe during the night by myself. I don't walk around by myself at night but it's not bad. I feel like they take sexual assault pretty seriously.

Athletics: We had the freshman pep rally and everyone was super excited. I'm not really into sports but the hper center is a really great place to work out.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: So far all of my classes are really fun and I have been learning a lot. I feel like they really try to help you and make you succeed. They push you just hard enough to where you have a good challenge but nothing overwhelming.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: There are University Police officers on campus at all times, as well as "Safe Ride" - you call the Safe Ride number and they will pick you up anywhere in town and bring you back to campus - no questions asked. I am not one to party, but I feel safer having this system for those who are and who might be too drunk to drive.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The bed is very comfortable, the space is reasonable. The community in my dorm is awesome, and the people are great. My dorm is farther away from my particular classes then other dorms, but it offers me a good walk every day. The housing application process is well laid out and easy to follow. The amenities are good, especially the no-pay laundry room.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: 5 weeks in it has been a great experience so far. My business program is awesome, and for that alone I would definitely choose this school again. The people are friendly, and all the instructors and advisors seem available and more than ready to help. I feel very much at home already.

Greek Life: on campus there is no difference in how Greek and non-Greek life students are treated. personally i am a non-Greek student and the people that i enjoy hanging out with are 50/50 meaning half are apart of Greek life the other half aren't and we are all really good friends because its not about affiliations its about the people.

Athletics: the athletics at my school could be described as the best in the country with are remarkable coaches and staff, die hard fans, and are incredible athletes. i believe that all of our athletes will have very bright futures and they will be fueled by the students spirit always cheering them on in the crowd because even the smallest voice can make a difference when push the line for a TD or taking that final free throw.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: the reason that my school is unique and why i would choose it over and over again is because the people and the faculty that make up this school are the reason i get up to go to school each day to see their faces and everyday expressions cause making people happy and full of joy is what fuels me to be the best i can be.

Health & Safety: Safe Ride is a service that helps students get places at night.

Greek Life: Greek life is a big part of our school. Most non-Greeks however, see Greeks as snobby people.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Our track and field team is phenomenal!

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: If I could go through the college application process all over again I would still pick the University of Arkansas. One of the reasons why is because I had an amazing University Chemistry professor. Dr. Brewer made the transition for high school to college easy. She was always willing to help her students and she's passionate about her field. One particular instance was when I walked into her office crying because I was concerned about my grade in a particular class. She was compassionate and nonjudgmental and helped me get through that tough time. I will always have fond memories of her and will remember the things she taught me in that classroom for the rest of my life.

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!
