    Getting in state tuition here was a huge relief. It made it less expensive than the other big schools in Texas. Plus you get a small college feel in a big college town.

    Being an Arkansas native, when I compare my cost of attendance to the education that I will receive, it really is a easy decision for me to choose to attend the University of Arkansas.

    This school goes way above what I have experienced at most Big State U's. It really feels much smaller than the 26,000 students it encompasses, and the value is fantastic, if you take advantage of it. The school is very generous with scholarships and aid, thanks to donation from big northwest Arkansas corporations like Walmart and Tyson.

    I have a friend from New York and he told me that he came here because we offered the major he wanted and was cheap in comparison.
