Arkansas Tech University Reviews
I really like the size of campus, there is about 12,000 students so it's not too big but not too small. This also allows for optimal class sizes. I always feel like I am noticed in class and not just another student. Most of my professors have gone above and beyond to help me and work with the special accomdations I have. I believe they truly want to see me succeed. I have also enjoyed the student life on campus. There is literally club for everyone. I have personally found Greek life to be my thing and have really enjoyed being apart of this organization since it promotes leadership and academic success. However, the only negative is the food choices on campus, they don't have the healthiest of options. Some of the dorms on campus need some upgrading but I hear they are in the process of doing so. Overall though, this was the best school for me!
My name is Tristan Weaver and, I am a transferring college student. I will be transferring from Ozarka College to Tech in the fall of 2018 and, I will be classified as a sophomore! I have made several trips down to Arkansas Tech University and, all of my experiences with the students and staff who work there has been excellent. The city of Russellville is very good as well. It is a quiet city and there’s plenty to do there. My time down at Tech will be very much enjoyed!
My experience at Arkansas Tech University has been great! I love the flexibility of scheduling class times and days, and the help available for students to succeed. One thing that needs to change desperately is the parking available to students. I do not think that students should only be allowed to park in certain colored parking lots. It is a huge hassle to try and find a parking spot and get to class on time. Especially when you cant afford a ticket that is given when parked in the wrong color.
