Reviews Dorm Life

  • 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.…

    Dorm food is fine. Brough is good, as is Brough 'to go'. The student Union has pretty decent food as well. The food on campus is a little better than can be expected from a college. However, Fayetteville and the rest of Northwest Arkansas have amazing restaurants! If you want it, we have it!

    There are only three dining halls that you can use with your meal plan, which is unfortunate but the chefs there are amazing! There are a variety of choices all made fresh at each dining hall. You can also use something called "meal trade" that you can use once a day. Meal trade is used at our student union that has places like Chic-fil-a, Pizza Hut, True Burger, and Flying Burrito. There are also a couple of restaurants on campus that you can also use meal trade for. You also have something called "flex dollars" that you can use at the convenience stores spread across campus to get snacks or coffee.

    Meal trade is great! The options are pretty good and there are a variety. The dinning halls are pretty gross though. There is a lot of variety, but the food is gross. I avoid it if I can, but ultimately everyone endures it.

    Students were given "Activity Cards" this enabled them to earn points to be used at a variety of dining establishments around campus. There were many different options for dining.

    This university has so many dining options for students. There are 3 dining halls on campus (Brough being the best) as well as many on campus restaurants. The on campus restaurants will take cash, credit/debit, as well as FLEX. FLEX is something each student gets along with their meal plan. For example, my meal plan is 15 meals a week and $175 FLEX for the semester. Flex is a great way to stop by and grab lunch to go on the way to class. At night you can meal trade one of your weekly meal plan meals for a meal at an on campus restaurant.

  • I am researching this school and have visited the campus

    There's a large cafeteria area on campus, and multiple small restaurants. Right next to the cafeteria there is a Quiznos and a Starbucks. There were many types of cuisine and vegetarian options in the cafeteria.

    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.

    Considered it and went to lots of events. Decided I wanted the flexibility to spend my free time how I wanted.

    Go greek! :~) I'm in a sorority, so I love it. Rush week for both men and women is rough and not an easy week, but well worth the pain! You make friends, have connections, and become involved and active in the community.

    Greek life is really big here. I myself am a part of greek life and I love my decision. Greek life is definitely not for everyone, however if you are on the fence about it, at least go through rush and let your experience there help guide your decision. Greek life comes with many benefits, such as a lifelong brotherhood or sisterhood, leadership opportunities, and connections to jobs and businesses all over.

    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.
