I love the University of Arkansas! From the beauty of the Ozarks to the nightlife on Dickson, everything about the U of A is top-notch. I have made lasting memories and friends for life, all while pursuing the career of my dreams. With outstanding academics and a wonderful Greek life. The University of Arkansas has everything to offer. When I'm not too busy studying, I can attend SEC conference football and basketball games, or explore everything the Northwest Arkansas has to offer. UARK is a fantastic place and is helping me make my dreams come true!

As a high school student who’d always have to put a lot of thought into what university I’d like to attend after I graduate, I discovered that the University of Arkansas was the best and most appropriate choice for me because after looking at what the University of Arkansas offers me, I knew that it would allow me to follow my passion and accomplish my goals. When I decided to visit the university, I noticed how everyone there is always so nice and welcoming and that makes me feel at home.
I haven’t spent enough time in the university to say that I would like to see some changes so for now, I still see in as an amazing place to spend my next four years as an art student!
