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.
Review Your College
I just transferred to the University of Arkansas this Spring 2017 semester. I went to my local community college for my first year and a half of college and while I was there I was searching for a four year University that I wanted to call in the future. When I drove down to visit the University of Arkansas, I completely fell in love. The campus is gorgeous and every single employee that I interacted with went over and above to make me feel comfortable. Now that I've been here for a month, I can definitely say the classes are much harder than my community college back in Texas. The students here are really welcoming and I see myself having a greta college experience here! I highly recommend this school.
Parking sucks! The parking and transit department makes more money than professors by overcharging for parking, parking permits, constantly giving out tickets, and giving out boots. The only thing good about this school is that it challenges you to do better because if you don't, you will fail horribly. Some students are openly racist and that becomes difficult to deal with when working within groups. Other than all that, college is what you make it. No matter the place, you can always make a situation better.
