University of Arkansas Fayetteville

4.0 out of 5 (10 ratings / 10 reviews) Fayetteville, Arkansas, United States
That 'students-first' philosophy is a big reason why the U of A is consistently ranked among the nation's top public research universities and best values. We work hard to ensure a low student-to-faculty ratio that promotes plenty of personal attention and mentoring opportunities.

I think it is a great university with an amazing support system for all international students.

Thoughts on University of Arkansas
Anonymous rated 3 out of 5 stars

I think the biggest improvement would be more affordable pricing. It's so expensive, and it's expensive because they know they can get you to pay it. I can't say much outside of that, because I'm an older, non-traditional student and therefore don't engage in a lot of the stuff younger, traditional students do at University.
