"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."

"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."

"College was a great experience, but in hindsight I wish I would have had a clearer view of what I wanted to do. As it turns out I won't actually use my degree in the work force and this is something that I hear time and time again from others as well."

"I love this school and the Chemistry Department as a whole is good. However, you need to be absolutely on top of what you need to graduate. I had three separate councilors and one of them was senile. None of them knew what I was actually supposed to be taking and were utterly unhelpful recommending classes. Just do your homework on your degree and be prepared."

"The University of Arkansas is an amazing school with a wide selection of majors to choose from. I am a kinesiology major and the University of Arkansas has helped me in many ways with my major. I am currently involved in both the kinesiology club and the physical therapy club and they both provide details about my major and how to obtain a job in the future. There are many programs like this for other majors and the University of Arkansas prepares us for our futures and guides us as we apply for jobs and plan ahead."
