The campus life at U of A contrary to popular belief is very active and fun.
Lots of campus events happening every week from athletic meets, food trucks, and free concerts from popular bands.

It is also located at one of the best places to live in the country, Fayetteville, Arkansas one of the top ranked best places to live!

The campus is close to different social places like coffee shops, restaurants, pubs, recreational parks, and relatively close to hiking trails.

Professors are really knowledgeable of their stuff, and the environment is also safe and super secured. With roaming in-campus police round the clock, and you can also ask a police officer to escort you to your car if you feel unsafe. Lots of informative and interactive public forums for students to help them succeed in their respective career choice. The academic advisers would really help you pick out classes you need, and at the best pace you're most comfortable with.
Review University of Arkansas
University of Arkansas is a beautiful campus located in the mountain area of Fayetteville, AR. The campus life is amazing with plenty of activities such as concerts, Friday night live and a lot of volunteer opportunities. The many departments we have on campus, has every major you can think of for your future! Our professors are super supportive and caring to making sure you understand the material and put what you've learn to work in the real world. Come check UofA out if you have some time!
While attending the University of Arkansas, the effort you put in is what you gain in terms of knowledge. Campus life is great! As an off-campus student; I feel like it is necessary to visit the campus at least 5 days out of the week regardless of the number of classes you’re taking. The students at the U of A are very nice as well. Have a question? A person could ask any student on the fly or even desk-help. Which leads to another great aspect of the university. The faculty! I would say the staff here are professional and composed. From dealing with questions and taking on their specific tasks, the faculty is an element to the university. As of now the university is great and there is a vast amount of information to obtain from it. Only if you’re willing to place an effort into your own learning and create boundless experiences. The University of Arkansas is a perfect place for that.
