University of Arkansas Reviews
I am not a student yet, but the campus is beautiful! On the tour, a really sweet girl showed us around and showed all of the different sports and intramural activities we can get involved in. We got to meet a lot of her friends which showed the diversity in people and how nice they are. There are a lot of things around the campus that make it a very safe environment. Later in the day we went to a football game for the university and it was such a fun and positive environment!
I absolutely love the University of Arkansas! Ever since my first visit to the U of A, I fell in love with the campus and the city of Fayetteville. After being at this university for over a year and a half, I'm still as in love with it as I was when I first stepped foot on campus. Of course no college it perfect, but one of my only complaints with the U of A is parking. There needs to be way more parking on campus and it needs to be better accessible to its students. Despite its flaws, I could not image going to a different university, and I am so glad that I get to call this place my home.
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!
