University of Arkansas Reviews
This is a growing university. The programs are changing for the better! There have been many positive events that have occurred here. We are being recognized for the better lately. I think there is a diverse group of students which makes for a better university. We need to see change happening around us, not just on social media or television. I hope to see more students grasping onto this idea!
Life at the U of A is a dream! #1, Ben Rector went here and throws us free concerts! But on the real— campus is absolutely beautiful, especially to a girl from flat Texas like me! Fayetteville is utterly charming, and has something for everyone. With thousands of international students and its central location, the diversity is special and so treasured on this campus. I am never worried about making friends of different backgrounds, or finding my niche with those who share my cultural background because it happens so naturally. There are also plenty of religious groups to get plugged into on and around campus. My only complaint is the Hill, but it is worth it to live in Pomfret Hall with bigger bathrooms, a nice common area, and the dining hall which comes in handy on days of inclement weather. I truly love being a Razorback, and am so grateful to call Northwest Arkansas my second home.
Beautiful campus and great people! Fun place to live, work, and go to school! It is a beautiful campus that offers plenty of things to do every day. The classes are interesting. There are tons of interesting people to meet around campus. The Greek life is pretty big here, but you don't have to be in a fraternity/sorority to have fun. The meal halls are nice and offer a good variety of food. The campus is easy to navigate, and takes a maximum of fifteen minutes to walk from one end of campus to the other end. It's a great place to spend the most memorable years of your life.
