The University of Arkansas is not good yet but is getting there. I'll admit that it is working hard to make the campus more diverse. But I will also admit that there is a very clear separation between social classes, economic classes, and different races. Greeks date greeks, greek girls date athletes, nongreeks don't interact with greeks that much, and you'll definitely meet alot of rich people who have never had a hard day in their life because daddy's paycheck always kept them smiling. The racial separation is unbelievable. Some white girls will chase black athletes (DMAC good example) but other that it's racially divided. African-Americans separate themselves with their own events, parties, etc. Asians truly are divided even all chosing to stay in same off-campus apartments, Mexicans and Bolivians are the same as well. the U of A is becoming is becoming more diverse in every way but you still have your country racists who come in from small towns around Fayetteville as well as some racists professors as well. But all in all Fayetteville is okay. There are a billions things to do on campus but still lacking alittle off-campus other than dickson. Whatever your interest you definitely be able to find student groups or other students who have same interest due to size of the unversity. Not too big where you walk around and never see anyone you don't know but you always see alot of people you've never met everyday. I'm a honors business student and it is very competitive from internships, classes, etc. My friends from arch. school complain all the time about disparities between colley. If you come to b-school don't depend too much on career center to get hired. Real good if you looking for accounting and marketing, not much else. A lot of parties and A lot of drinking. Drinking has become way of life for students at U of A. Don't expect any help from university after freshmen year concerning housing, classes to take, etc. After freshmen year they expect you know everything about the university. Parking will eat you alive. DO NOT NEVER TRY TO BEAT PARKING, YOU WILL LOSE. They give out tickets like handshakes and I've seen students' cars getting towed 2 or 3 times a week. Off-campus is cheaper but almost not worth it dealing with parking and inconvenience. Good student support services and academic support as well. Good scholarships, especially if you're smart and in business. We me mentioning all the good stuff about U of A you are probably wondering why the comment is not positive. At U of A you will have to deal with some of the most fake, stuck-up, people you have ever met. I've met people who openly brag about how much money their parents have in front of people who are not so financially blessed. Once you become indepedent, get your morals and beliefs right(there are a lot of people at U of A through vain philosophy arguing that any type of lifestyle, drugs, and practices are okay and you should try it out while totally disregarding morals and consequences). If you are Christian or another religion please strenghthen yourself before you come here. I've seen alot of students pay huge consequences for following the crowd or doing things without any guidance. Be strong. Well once you get pass people attitudes, and solidfy your morals, and find REAL FRIENDS, you'll have a good time and learn alot. Don't stay there, alot of people do because of friends but alot of other states with better cities(Texas).
