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.
Review Arkansas Tech University
I am an older student and had returned for a second bachelor's degree. I felt very old, but I'm only in my 30s! The school was okay...but I didn't like it enough to stay. I felt like all the professors wanted to push Blackboard but it was a confusing mess. I was an all A student but still missed assignments because they'd be posted in random folders. There was never any parking and not enough time to get to classes with a spread out campus like that. But I think for me, I mostly felt like a number there. No one knew my name, no one cared if I came to class. So I'm switching to another school's online program. ATU isn't a bad school but just wasn't for me.
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!
