What Students Are Saying

3.94 Average Rating
This university has a diverse, smart, and eclectic student body. The classes never fail to impress me, and neither does the sheer beauty of the campus.
Molly from Fort Smith, AR
The University of Arkansas is beautiful like no other campus I've encountered. Since first moving up to Fayetteville, I've been able to witness the leaps and bounds the University has taken to grow quickly with the quickly evolving world of technology. Being able to communicate with professors quickly online, doing completely anonymous reviews of the professors through a survey program, and using a google platform for the new email system are great improvements!
