Robert - 3/26/2017
Degree: English
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."

Steven Ward - 3/25/2017
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."

Megan Lopez - 3/9/2017
Degree: Fitness Trainer
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"

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."

Kailee Stonebarger - 6/29/2016
Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2014
"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."

Linda - 6/10/2016
Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2015
"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."
