  • 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.…

    The dining halls provide a great variety in terms of food and you can also request certain foods or dishes on a white board that they provide. As an international student, the dining hall food was very tasteless and some of the international dishes they prepared, I thought could have been prepared better. But good effort! Overall, the food was above average.

    The food is okay. Overall, nothing to get excited about but decent. I will say, however, that Chartwells does a terrible job making dining options available to students. Dining halls close at 7:30 PM on weekdays and 7 PM on weekends (including Fridays). While meal trade/alternative dining options remain open later into the evenings, almost all are fast food. A healthy diet and the late-nights typical of college simply don't coexist at this university.

    The food and dining available at the University of Arkansas is great, they have a huge variety of dining options. Anything from fast food, to delicious dining is available all across campus. And there are hundreds of places to eat at in Fayetteville at walking distance.

    The union houses different alternatives. The campus has three cafes, including starbucks. The food on campus is delicious and there is a lot to choose from.

    I have only ate in the student union because there is Chick-Fil-A and who doesn't like that? There are several fast food eating places around campus but I have not experienced the dining halls.

    Not only are the dining halls on campus known for their creative, quality, and healthy options for students, the restaurants and fast food locations on campus allow for anyone to find something to eat regardless of diet. Personally, I loved The Wok, a creative take on Asian dining that has two convenient location on campus.

    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!

    The University of Arkansas has about 10 sororities and 14 fraternities. Although there as many as other schools, many more people are allowed into them and the sororities and fraternities are quite large. The Greek life is very influential and fun for all involved.
