Arkansas Tech University is a great University to study at, whether you like being surrounded by thousands of students at the University in Russellville or a more smaller College in Ozark. I currently go to Arkansas Tech University in Ozark, I mainly choosed to go to this college because I do not like to be surrounded by large groups of people. It is such a wonderful college to go to, everyone is so kind and friendly, everyone makes you feel at home even if your miles away from it! There is nothing I would change about this college!
Review Arkansas Tech University
I really enjoyed going to football games on Friday nights in high school. During basketball season, me and a friend vowed to go to every game, even the games 3 hours away. I played volleyball and was the softball manager. I was always around sports. And I couldn't wait to see what the atmosphere of a college sporting event was like, I could just imagine all the yelling and wild fans at college football games! My first time going to a football game at my school wasn't quite what I imagined. It was quiet. There was no real "student section". And a lot of people weren't even paying attention to the game. I'm not real sure what the problem was, though. Maybe it was just school spirit. But intramural sports are another story. Everyone plays if they can. Intramural sports are so much fun and the level of competition just makes them even more enjoyable. I also played on a softball team. The first game, my team got beat by 25 points. I wasn't upset though, none if us were, we all had a great time! That atmosphere was just fun and relaxed and I absolutely loved it.
I like International students events and activities, and on-campus work opportunities.
I would like to see "International students Tutoring and Writing center" were senior International students work as tutors for fellow International students.
I would also like to see new BLOODS and DIVERSITY at the library's AND Information Center's administration. Someone should keep an eye on those guys because they're trying to turn the library to a political and hate battle field. What makes it worse is American students trying to satisfy the administration.
