4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Our public safety team is literally one of the best there is. They do not take anything lightly and will enforce whatever rules they need. They even put in new security systems that is accessed only by our id's to prevent break ins.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I really love the classes and that class sizes that we have. There is a broad range of classes to choose from.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: We have a job fair on campus every year that is very helpful with graduating seniors. We also get a career corner email every week about the internships that are in arkansas and surronding states that help. It is really great.

Campus Housing: The dorm hall i live in was built during the great depression and has only been remodeled once. Most people try to take clothes from the laundry room that is not theirs, the kitchen is not good and all. It is too expensive to live on campus, but it is very convenient. The people here are okay but not the nicest.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: The athletics here are phenomenal. The students always get so pumped going to any of the games, the entire school supports each sports team. So they have plenty of fan support and school spirit. The facilities are great too they recently remodeled the gym and it is a very adaquate enviroment.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The university is a fantasic university. The classes are challenging but not so hard you want to cry, but the students that go here are not that great.

Campus Housing: Due to the increase in the class size there has been limited housing available but they are working on adding new apartments so this will be resolved. I live in the King dorm and while the rooms aren't very large, they are very well constructed and convenient for getting to classes and anywhere else on campus. A cleaning crew cleans at least twice a week so it's never very messy and the resident assistants do a very good job of making sure everyone is satisfied and following the rules. It's a great place to live especially for the freshmen.

Athletics: Even though we do not have a football team, we have everything else. It's not hard for even the less active people to find a sport they belong in (for me it was shooting sports), and everyone here gets involved by either being on a team or going out and supporting one another. It's not that we really care about the sport if we don't participate, but that we care about our fellow students and seeing them do well. Sports help us all to get involved and become closer as a class.

Overall Experience: This university is amazing! I wasn't entirely sure what field I wanted to go into but luckily there is something for everyone here and due to the required courses I get a chance to expand my thinking in order to get involved with so many different groups of people to find my niche. It has so many different programs and organizations on campus and is so involved with the community that it is not difficult to form bonds with people, and the faculty and staff are alwahs so accommodating and helpful because they want to see us succeed. I would choose this university a thousand times over if given the option because I feel as though I really belong here and everyone is so nice and the environment is amazing around here it's not difficult to de-stress when the workload gets overwhelming.

Campus Housing: If you don't live in the apartments, you probably won't like it.

3 College Junior

Athletics: It's a division III school in a southern fried town. Don't expect too much.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: The University itself is great but student housing can be... Let's just say an ordeal. But I'm going to list the positives first- The area is gorgeous and the class sizes are small to medium. You can tell that most people working at this university legitimately care about the students. Other than the dorms, the facilities are great and there are lots of bathrooms in them (you will see why this is important if you read the rest of this). The student population is fairly diverse, with a lot of different groups represented. The professors are also really good.

I live in MacLean hall, which is really old, pretty dirty, sometimes moldy, and has constant problems with bugs, usually ladybugs and June bugs but also sometimes wasps. There are times when I just feel frustrated by the building I have to live in. My housing situation has definitely had a negative impact on my overall experience at this school. The bathrooms are cleaned every weekday, but they are still my biggest issue with the dorm. Since there are so many students using a bathroom (albeit one with 4 stalls, 6-8 sinks and a shower room in close proximity) it often gets really gross. This is where the other bathrooms come in- There are several clean bathrooms on campus that are available 24/7. The building has singles and suites which have 2 bedrooms and one common room, which is actually really nice. But that's really the only positive. As I said before, the university does care about its students so it's not oblivious to these issues, but the university does not have the time or resources to build a new building. Another negative is that the school does not have a nurse, and although other members of Student Life will try to help you if something is really wrong, it's extremely inconvenient to have to go off campus, especially if you don't have a car.

Students Often Come From

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

The University of the Ozarks has an excellent, top-grade, and awesome education. The University is different from any other school you'll ever visit. Academics is number one, and extracurricular activities come second. The workload may be intense and massive, but the teachers push the students to their absolute potential. Everyone wants each person to succeed. By the time the students graduate, they are properly prepared for graduate studies or the professional workforce. The social networking system at the University is essential, as it is important for students to connect for future job references that could possibly help them with job opportunities later on. Internships are vital to some majors, and professors continually encourage students to apply for internships, summer jobs, or study abroad programs. Professors perform their job, help students within and outside their majors, and constantly promote the University.

The help students receive at the University of the Ozarks is unlike any other. Through the JLC (Jones Learning Center), students with learning or physical disabilities are assisted with homework, while the SSS (Student Support Services) lab and the ACE (Academic Center for Excellence) lab also provide help for students. The Career Services office offers students resume assistance, job finding skills, tips for better interviewing, reading materials about current jobs, and job and internship search websites. Overall, the University promotes success and gives students so many opportunities to succeed. However, attending U of O takes passion and a lot of determination for students to prosper and grow in their education.
