This small liberal arts school is rigorous, but will prepare you to go far in life. This is hands down the best private school in Arkansas. Campus is safe and well maintained, but could use a few updates. There has been a lot of positive change with the new college president.

Love the people, activities available, environment, and beauty of the campus. Only thing I would change is the food. It would be nice to have more eating options on campus.
Decent menu variety, but food quality is inconsistent. Don't base your meal plans on Honors Day or other scheduled visits because the food is always better then. The Bistro is good, but fried food menu and not part of your meal plan (use your Lyon bucks here). You can get cold box lunches to go now though which ARE included in your meal plan. Biggest problem in the caf is that there are a lot of students trying to eat in a very short amount of time which causes long lines at lunch. Only 2 meals a day served on the weekends. Unless you plan to eat every single meal in the caf, you are better off going with the 10 or 15 meal plan (Are you really going to go to the caf for breakfast before an 8:00 am class?). There ARE vegetarian options which are pretty good, but red meat is pretty rare. Brenda's cookies are amazing though!
