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.
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!
I love Arkansas Tech because the campus is so beautiful and so spacious, nothing is all crammed together and I love that! The people here are so nice and so helpful with whatever it is you may need. They are understanding and do whatever they can to try and help you and do what is best for you. The dorms are a good size and everyone is super friendly. There is so much to do at Arkansas Tech and I absolutely love it.
