Arkansas State University is a very comfortable and enjoyable campus! I loved going to college here. Eating lunch was amazing, because the food is awesome. I learned a lot because the professors were so helpful and nice. I am so glad I chose to go to this college for my first year. I felt really safe at this campus and never felt like I had to worry. The faculty are always going above and beyond to do anything they can to help the students.

Arkansas state university- Newport is a smaller school which allows professors to be able to do a little more interaction with their students, which is great! Everything is easier to find unlike at a university where you can not find anything at all. You are able to interact with students and get to know more people because it's a smaller college that I could compare to a high school. The only thing that I dislike is that there is lack of staff so everything is moving slower, but no complaint. They are doing the best they can!
I started going to Arkansas State University Newport-Jonesboro campus last year and I absolutely love it! I do classes both on campus and online and the professors are amazing! They have so many activities for the students to be a part of and I love the atmosphere at my school! I would recommend this school to anyone!
