  • 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.…

    Pretty good food for what you pay for. I mean it's college food so nothing about it is going to be really special. There are a lot of different meal plans offered. The dining in Fayetteville around the campus is a little lack luster especially if you come from a large town with a lot of dining options. A lot of fast food in Fayetteville!

    The variety and the quality of the food was amazing; however, the layout of the cafeteria's is not the most effective.

    There are a number of restaurant options on campus. I would like more accessible healthy food options, and another cafeteria on campus because it's a large campus and 3 cafeterias don't go very far.

    Living at Hotz Hall makes me a very short distance from the Quad, everyone that works there is friendly, outgoing, and easily conversational. They all take pride in what they make and making sure the customers/students are happy and taken care of. They try to incorporate other culture's meals as well to remind everyone of home and help with the transition from home life to dorm life.

    There is so so many options for food at night time. For breakfast you can meal trade at a coffee shop or eat in the dining hall, for lunch you just eat at the dining hall or get it to go. And for dinner you have the 3 dining halls, 3 food places in founders, and 5 food places at the Union. You have so many options but I'm lazy and always wait in the long line at slims lol.

    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.

    A lot of Greek life members. Too many in my opinion. Give the U of A a party school reputation which many mock them for. Frats and sororities get kicked off campus ALL the time and yet nobody seems to care about their crazy partying.

    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.
