The University of Arkansas was established as a land-grant institution in Fayetteville, AR, situated on a hilltop that overlooks the Ozark Mountains. It is the flagship campus of the UA system and the largest university in the state. U of A is a designated “high research activity” university by the Carnegie Foundation and ranks #56 in the Region by Forbes.The university is affiliated with Arkansas Research and Technology Park and houses the National Center for Reliable Power Transmission, the most powerful power testing facility at any university in the US.
My visits and experiences with the University of Arkansas have been quite positive; the staff and teachers are helpful, and classes are fairly small. The student life has something for everyone; over a hundred clubs and sports make sure no one is left out. With the exception of all of the hills, the landscaping and general atmosphere of the university are beautiful and upbeat.
This university has a diverse, smart, and eclectic student body. The classes never fail to impress me, and neither does the sheer beauty of the campus.
