I am currently a senior at Arkansas Tech, and have attended here since my freshman year. I personally believe that this is one of the finest institutions in the state, with much more to offer than other universities. The size is perfect. The classes are small and personal, yet the student body is large enough to ensure the availability of technology. I can honestly say that nearly every professor I have had has known me by name within the first couple of weeks, which helps when exam time rolls around. They still grade you objectively, but it is always helpful if they can place a face with a name. Mostly, the professors are always available to help, and the professors ACTUALLY TEACH the courses, not T.A.'s.

The campus is very nice, and most facilities are up-to-date and well-maintained. The library and student center are nice, as are several of the residence halls. The food isn't all bad, and the staff members are for the most part very helpful.

Russellville is a typical small city. There are not tons of things to do, but unless you are interested in going out every night of the week, you should find plenty to do here. All you have to do is make a few good friends (which is easy in the small classes), and you will never be bored.

Overall, Arkansas Tech is a great university. It has a reputation for being filled with red necks and good ol' boys, and while you will find some of these here (we are in Arkansas of course), this is certainly not the norm. I feel that I have received a first-class education here, and have made some great friends with other students and professors in my four years. Basically, I love Tech and would recommend it to anyone.
