Arkansas State university is in small town jonesboro where most of the ppl are arrogant and RED NECK.Being an International student I faced too much racisim not in my job but in my department.My Dean Dr william ROE is Red neck guy and he hates Asian.Many times he passed racial comments.Dean is not at all flexible and don't know how to run department.He only want gmat score no matter you got 3 C grades in your MBA and you are not good enough to be MBA graduate.MBA program has value only in Arkansas and specially in Jonesboro and out side Jonesboro you are nothing.
The Music Performance program for three years. Arkansas State has top notch professors in the music program, especially in Instrumental Music. The conductor of bands Dr. Timothy Oliver is probably the most influential figure on the students here. He is an amazing conductor that rubs off his skill to all he conducts. Arkansas State is a contender for the best music program in the South!
I have been at Arkansas State for two years, it just keeps getting better and better. The town that it is located in is the perfect size, it has tons of stuff to do while still having a friendly home feel. The Academics are excellent! The professors have set hours outside of class that you can meet with them and talk about anything. I have never had a class taught by a grad student all professors are leaders in their field.
