Southern Arkansas University Reviews
Overall, I absolutely love Southern Arkansas University! Granted, Magnolia, AR is a small and is not a typical college town, but it just adds to the charm! Literally everybody I have encountered is so polite and welcoming. The classes are not too challenging if you study and prepare, but if you are struggling, the professors are willing to work with you. The professors know how to get along and goof off with the students, but they also make you work. There are opportunities to get involved on campus to compensate for the rural town too! The Mulerider Activity Center is open to all students and is a great way to spend free time! I am beyond blessed to have the opportunity to be a Mulerider!
Southern Arkansas University is a school unlike any other in my opinion. My first step on campus felt like home. They became a family to me. Being so far from home, Southern Arkansas became a place for me to make my own future and my own life. As a competitor on the Mule-rider Rodeo Team, I am constantly juggling practicing, traveling, studying, as well as keeping up on a social life. SAU is a school that enables all of those aspects and they help me to exceed in every step of the way from beginning to end. One thing I would like to see change is some of the required classes for my major. As an animal science major, I do not like taking so many plant classes and labs where I could be taking an animal lecture or lab instead.
Southern Arkansas University is a fast-growing public University in Arkansas, but she is far from perfect. The student-faculty ratio is good, our professors are great! but there's no transportation system around, one needs a personal car to live well here. Campus food is nice but can be crappy sometimes, oh, athletics ! I like all sports activities going on here!
