Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2016

I enjoyed my time at the U of A, as it was a great place to be. Tons of events, lots of things to do around Fayetteville, and it's quite cheap compared to other larger university towns. But, that's about where I have to stop with my positive experiences. I graduated in 5 years, rather than 4, because my academic advisor made a mistake that was only discovered months after I was supposed to have received my diploma. To make the long story short, I had to take a single course in logistics 9 months after what ought to have been my graduation date in order to finally get that diploma. When I entered the U of A, I was told that 95% of graduates were hired within 3 months of their graduation, and the percentage was higher within the business college. I ended up applying for 9 months for jobs with absolutely zero assistance from the career center (despite repeated contact and inquiry) before finally getting my first full time job.... as a nanny. Since I graduated (it's been 2 years officially) I've been able to engage in a professional level job once for a total 4 months of seasonal work.

Degree: Chemistry
Graduation Year: 2017

The University is not off campus friendly. Back when I started college I was able to park near campus and go to class using my remote parking permit, now days all the remote student parking lots have been replaced for resident only parking lots, leaving no other option than having to park really far away and having to take a buss to go to class. Most of the students who have the resident parking permit leave during the school break, leaving all the parking lots empty, worst part is that no one who doesn't have the resident permit can park there so these spaces are completely wasted during school break. The university of Arkansas hires professors from other countries, in most of my experiences these professors never taught a class before, they completely lack experience and have a problems with pronunciation. The problem is that these people teach important classes such as chemistry, math and economy and by having no experience they make it difficult for you to learn. All the water fountains have green tips full of gunk that makes you think it twice before refilling your water bottle.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2018

The University of Arkansas is such an amazing school. Once you get into your major classes, you become so close with the professors and they really do try to help you succeed to the best of their abilities. I can not say enough about the atmosphere, the city of Fayetteville and the people I have met at the university.

The home of the Razorbacks is a great university with much student diversity. The students are so motivated and always excited to further their education. Everyone there always has great advice to give. The campus is nicely equipped with anything a student could ever need. Overall, great university!

Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2015

Really enjoyed my time at the U of A and will be advising anyone that asks that it is definitely worth attending. I especially enjoyed my degree program, it was informative and very hands on which helped to prepare me for my career in Probation and Parole.

Degree: English Language and Literature, General
Graduation Year: 2014

The professors are excellent. Although the University of Arkansas has many programs that aren't ranked nationally, if you make the effort and take the right professors, you can get an education rivaling that of a ranked school. Many of my professors were renowned in their field and were regularly active in publishing. As far as pedagogy, they were also wonderfully engaging and knowledgeable with comprehensive, insightful lectures that genuinely enhanced my appreciation of the relevant material and scholarship. I am proud that I studied at the U of A and can honestly say I don't feel disappointed in the quality of my education.

Degree: Architecture
Graduation Year: 2013

I had and outstanding experience at the University of Arkansas. My undergraduate degree in Architecture prepared me for the multitude of challenges and opportunities in my profession. I was given the tools, techniques, and skills to act as a designer and thinker in todays world. I have excelled professionally and personally because of my education at the UofA. The architecture program at the UofA is nationally recognized for its leadership in design and design education. The faculty and staff have played an enormous role in shaping who I am today as a designer and a citizen. Im thankful for the gracious support and challenge that I received from my professors who today as peers still push me in my personal and professional aspirations. I highly recommend the University of Arkansas as a public institution of learning.

Degree: Kinesiology and Exercise Science
Graduation Year: 2017

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.

Degree: Journalism
Graduation Year: 2017

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
