From University of the Ozarks

University of the Ozarks is home to students seeking to find motivation to think bigger, be courageous, and develop a clear view of the world and their place in it. Located on 45 acres at the base of the beautiful Ozark Mountains in Clarksville, Arkansas, this is a place where students experience the opportunity to live fully, learn deeply, experience widely, and make an impact far beyond the campus community as they pursue the goal of becoming the best version of themselves. We provide the challenging academic framework, mentoring and motivation, and strong sense of community to support students in the pursuit of their goals. Ozarks offers 60 undergraduate degree programs across a range of disciplines, all underscored by the innovative LENS core curriculum which provides students the opportunity to pursue a major and two minors in their areas of interest. Robust campus life, inviting surroundings, and numerous options for engagement with peers ensure a well-rounded student experience.
