Arkansas Tech University Reviews
Arkansas Tech University is the place to go for an amazing education at a reasonable cost. Everyone I have encountered to far has been friendly and helpful. The staff is always willing to answer any questions you might have. The transition from high school to a college student was made easy by amazing professors that made me feel welcome and were engaging in their lectures and material. The campus has a great student life and there is always something going on for everyone being that from clubs to just about anything under the sun. Specking about the sun, the Golden Suns and Wonder Boy games are free for students to get in to! Arkansas Tech cares for their students and is an overall amazing institution.
Arkansas Tech was one of the best decisions I've ever made. I spent my first year of college at UCA and found myself wishing I had gone for my other choice. So I decided to transfer to ATU and I've loved it. COVID-19 has made the college experience very different, but despite online courses and social distancing, I've had a great second year. The staff, both professors and general workers, clearly care for the students here. They're always willing to help and extend a hand to students struggling. I've also found that the other students here are generally very open and nice to new people. The food and other necessities like dorm life is fairly average, but for the affordability of this campus it's great. Overall, I would recommend ATU to any Arkansas student looking for an affordable campus that cares about their wellbeing.
Great school! Economic & cultural with lots of opportunities for every lifestyle & interest. Community , leadership, family, culture, team spirit, extracurricular, multicultural, advanced
