  • There are some older dorms that can be pretty funky and cramped. There are also really nice dorms, but they cost a tad more. There's really no in-between.…

    Again, it's dining hall food, so it gets pretty monotonous after a while. You tend to stick to one of the three dining halls I realized, depending on where you live. The restaurants on campus is always a good alternative.

    I can't speak for any of the dining halls, but the Student Union has many delicious options to grab between classes.

    I was really surprised when I came to Arkansas to discover the variety of dining choices. Meal plans have several options, consisting of some number of meals per week and some number of flex Dollars per semester that can be spent on snacks, etc. Aside from the traditional cafaterias (of which there are 3), there are several restaurants, like Quizno's Chick-fil-A, Papa Johns, Slim's Chicken, Burger King, etc. scattered around campus, all of which accept meal swipes at various times of the day. The food here is way better than I expected.

    The food is good and they have a large variety but the dining halls can get pretty busy and there are long lines.

    There are a few different dining options on campus. The cafeteria was a necessity freshman year (decent, free food). They also have chick-fil-a, burger king and a few other places to do a meal-trade (1 free meal per night with a meal plan).

    The Chickfila on campus was my home my freshman year. There's many restaurants on campus where you can use your FLEX dollars(comes with meal plans). I never experienced Pomfret dining hall, but Brough and the Quad always have something good, and if not, theres always made-to-order stir fry, sandwiches and pasta.

    Heavy Greek presence, but you don't have to be Greek to have fun. Everyone is accepting to one another. Going Greek definitely has advantages though, if you can afford it.

    I'm an independent, but as I said earlier in this review, Greek Life is big here. There are quite a few fraternities and sororities to choose from; one of each was even founded here. If you want to be frat you will fit right in here at Arkansas, but if you don't you'll also fit in just fine.

    Greek life is a huge part of the culture on campus! Being involved in Greek life has given people so many opportunities to do other things that they would have never even dreamed of! It is something that a lot of people highly recommend!
