University of Arkansas Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (23)
I was very pleased with my education through the university of Arkansas. The curriculum is very straight forward and not confusing or misleading. I enjoyed working with all of the professors and fellow students; you can tell that the professors care about each and every one of the students' success. However, I do feel that my advisors could have been a lot more personal than they were. At a big school it is hard to get personal with every single professor and your advisor as well. I do feel very prepared though going on to graduate school, and, I can say that the University of Arkansas contributed to my confidence and preparation. It's a great atmosphere and education program; I don't think I could have gone to a better college for my undergraduate degree.
While the journalism program may have some room to grow as far as courses goes, the faculty is stacked with experienced and helpful professors. Getting to know them and asking for advice is one of the best things you can do for your future career! Very fun program especially for news/editorial majors
I would highly recommend the Industrial Engineering program at the University of Arkansas. The University as a whole offers a wide variety of extracurricular activities and many diverse clubs and organizations. The U of A also offers numerous degrees to accommodate everyone. The Industrial Engineering program has some of the best professors who are always there to help and guide you in the right direction. The course work is challenging, but relevant to the real world.
The University of Arkansas is a great school. It's a nice fun place with anything anyone would ever want from a university. You could study anything you want to, and there hobbies and activities for anyone. The city is fantastic. It's a great place & I'd recommend it to anyone.
The University of Arkansas offers a great online master's program. Registering was easy and the staff were very helpful and answered all of my questions in a timely manner. I enjoyed getting my degree and will definitely return to the U of A if I decide to continue my education.
I learned a lot during my Bachelors degree program in Psychology at the University of Arkansas. The classes varied in rigor and activity level. The requirements for each course varied greatly as well. Although I learned a lot during my program, there was very little real life application. If I had to change one thing about the program I would like to see more real life application and hands on experiences.
At first glance, this is a fairly large university. In the past few years, they allowed for an upgrade of 15 minutes between classes for easier travel since the previous ten minutes meant a student had to run from one end of campus to the other. The anthropology program is fantastic! They have a lot of classes in each of the subfields. The biology department has more classes than can be taken, so if your major is in biological sciences, make sure to look over all of the different classes in the catalog before making your four year plan. In terms of the four year plan, you need to think of this in your first semester. Sure, you won't know when each class is going to be offered, especially if it's listed as "irregular," but get a general idea of what you need to take and when since most upper level courses of every major has prerequisites. The different offices in the Union are very helpful. There are a lot of different clubs and organizations, so you should never feel like you don't belong.
As a graduate of the U of A, Fayetteville, I gained not only an education, but life long skills needed to survive in an ever changing world. The U of A provided me internship experience via my college that helped me acclimate to the working world. Being a U of A graduate brought me a sense of honor and accomplishment that I take with me wherever I work or travel. When I return to the U of A and see my name etched in the sidewalk beside Old Main, I get a renewed sense of pride and feeling of accomplishment as I look back over the courses I took during my tenure at the U of A. Nothing can ever take a degree away -it is forever.
Great accelerated program for working professionals. The faculty and staff were great. Overall it was rewarding and positive experience.
College is worthwhile, but requires dedication to get the maximum benefit. I found I always did best when I never skipped class, and took good notes. I wasted a lot of money on un-necessary textbooks.
