The science department has been wonderful and challenging, especially the higher level chemistry. The professors, for the most part, are really warm and just beg you to let them help you succeed. The labs are wonderful for reinforcing the lectures. Of course if you are majoring under this department, expect to WORK. While the rest of the campus could probably get by just breathing (just needing a 2.75), which a vegetable could accomplish in other departments, this won't be the case with these more difficult degrees. These guys are great for the stubbornly over driven, academically oriented student. The brand...

    Southern Arkansas University can be best described as disappointing. Advertised as the fastest growing university in Arkansas, despite it being founded in 1909, it has shown very little growth that will benefit the current and future students. In short, if you're looking for a degree that will give you worth and value, look elsewhere.

    Southern Arkansas is not worth attending, especially if you are a serious, and hard working, cross country athlete looking into the program. The fact that this university is said to be the fastest growing university in Arkansas, is pathetic. There is not anything worth it for students here, and there is nothing to do in the small, town of Magnolia.

    Me and some other current students I know have been screwed over financially by SAU. It is by far one of the worst colleges to go to. And some of the more important faculty are rude when you try to question why you where charged for something.

    Southern Arkansas is a decent school. Teachers are fairly decent at their job, although there is always room for improvement and the campus is nice and small.

    I feel the business office as well as other offices do not guide the Freshman like they should. I am totally new to all of the loans and such, I feel they think I should know all the answers, when a question is posed. It is a good school but you have to have your head in it to know what is going on.

    Southern Arkansas University is a very diversed school. It's big campus makes it very easy to be friendly and meet new people. If I had to rate my school it would be a 9.

    SAU has a nice community feel about it; everyone knows everyone else. The professors are great and want to make sure you have a great education. Financial aid and housing staff are less than desirable and are slow at processing student information.

    SAU is a wonderful environment and keeps me busy. You'll never be bored here, and you make friends instantly. This is a great place!

    My experience touring the campus of SAU opened my eyes to the opportunities available to me close to home. The Presidential Ambassadors were extremely helpful in introducing me to professors, dorm life and explaining the benefits of campus life preparing me for life after graduating from SAU. I felt more than comfortable and am very excited about attending SAU.
