Likes: R.O.C.K. camp - met my current college best friends there.

Likes: The Fay Jones School of Architecture is a beautiful building - like the professors and students there.

Likes: The food is pretty good (Still miss my Mom's).

Dislikes: I'm from Louisiana - the uphill walk to the classes is difficult, but I expect my leg muscles will be awesome at the end of the semester!

Likes: Locals are very polite. Area is very beautiful.

Not sure about Athletics: My parents are LSU fans. I hope the Hogs play a great game against them!
The University of Arkansas's atmosphere is so exciting! Who wouldn't want to be a Razorback! However, there needs to be more parking and larger dorms. I like being around everyone at the university. The library is nice because it is so quiet and there are plenty of activities to do. Hog fans are the best fans out there. Visiting this school has made me a better person in general. I have become more open and more confident. I now stand up for what I believe in.
