Degree: Teaching
Graduation Year: 2016

The MTLL program at the CLL is a joke. They never give straight answers and push graduation as far as possible. However if you are their favorite then you can do whatever you want. All my classes they would start out by saying were "kind of an intro" to the program. Never learned what we were supposed to learn since we spent all class talking about random things. Don't waste your money at Tech for this program. Go through the state or Arkansas State.

Degree: Early Childhood Education
Graduation Year: 2011

The financial aid office encouraged us (my husband and I, married young) to get substantial student loans, far above what we needed for tuition and books. My husband blew the money from both our loans. He is now in prison (by the grace of God we are still together and he has got his life under control with the Lord's help) and I am raising three children by myself for the next 4 years. I had to default on the loans and I will be paying them for at least the next 20 years. I just enrolled in NPCC to obtain a paralegal certificate, only federal Pell Grant, no loans this time! Please, if you must get loans, make them as minimal as possible, having money now doesn't negate having to pay far into your future!

Degree: Nursing Education
Graduation Year: 2018

I have just started and so far I am coming to love the school. When you make your schedule the academic advisers do there best to work with you for your schedule. I am a single parent who could work past a certain time. We were able to find all the classes i need and still found me time to study. Most everyone here are supper helpful and welcoming. I highly recommend my school to you.

Degree: Child Development
Graduation Year: 2014

I would have liked to go have gone to a different college, but my undergraduate experience cannot be traded. I chose to focus on the academic aspect of college more so than the social part. Although, ATU does have opportunities to meet people on campus and do fun activities, it seemed like I always had to work. I went into college with a declared major which you don't have to do until you have earned 40 hours, but I knew what area I wanted to study and that was Psychology. The Psychology undergraduate degree program has a lot of room for electives, second field's of study, and/or possibly a second degree. I liked that I was still able to pursue my studies in psych, but I could also pursue an associate's and two minors as well. I love the professors in the Behavioral Sciences Department and the Biological Sciences Department. I am from the Russellville area where as each professor at Tech has an interesting background and how they ended up at Tech. I decided to stay at ATU and get a Master's simply because I am very comfortable there and I know I would be able to receive good financial aid. ATU has a high acceptance rate and is willing to let you in if you do the work. I took classes in Psych, Criminal Justice, Biology, French, and Philosophy and each professor is very educated and wants you to learn. Tech is focused more on a teaching university instead of a research university. Also, there are many resources for students such as Norman Career Services which helps with interviews, resumes, and getting you prepared for employment. There is Student Counseling Services which a student can go to if they are feeling overwhelmed or there are some issues going on that they would like to talk to someone about. We have a lot of International Students here at Tech which introduces students to different cultures. Tech does have it's flaws too. Common things that a Tech student is bound to be irritated by is parking, rain, and the library. Parking can be a giant hassle, especially on "Time Out For Tech" which if when high school students and their families visit the campus. I recommend getting there at least 15 minutes early so that you can get a parking spot, walk to class, and then get your seat. I also recommend rain boots, because Russellville, and Tech is not excluded, floods somewhat when it rains. After periods of long rain fall, "Lake Tech" should be expected. One of my peeves is the library and how it is usually cold, people can be loud, and during finals getting a computer is really hard. However, I am in the library every day, so if you are like me, you are bound to experience these things. Overall, I do recommend Tech to my friends and others, but if you are given the opportunity to go elsewhere consider other places. I am from here, so Tech is my home. It's a love/hate relationship for me and the city of Russellville. But I am staying for my Master's, so obviously it does not annoy me that much. I am just so comfortable here that it's hard to get out of that comfort zone and explore other options.

Degree: Business, Management, Marketing, and Related Support Services, Other
Graduation Year: 2015

I am a full time student with a full time career. I am a mother of three children and active in community events. I have been able to further my education with the wonderful program Arkansas Tech University offers online. The advisors are very helpful and the professors and instructors are very educated and interested to assist students. My experience has been fantastic and I would have have been able to complete my degree without the direction of the school. As a first generation college student I hope to change the education for my children with the knowledge I have gained. My husband of 17 years has been very supportive of my decision to further my education. It's a family decision for us!
