I knew from the second I set foot on this campus that this is where I would spend my next four years. It is such a pretty campus and has so much life. I have made so many lasting friends here and have fit in perfectly. I would encourage every prospective student to come and take a tour of the campus and the college they are interested in. Also, get involved in something around school. Whether it be greek life, academics clubs, or student government or any of the other hundreds of organizations on campus. If you get involved and stay involved, your college career will be one you never forget.

The University of Arkansas is a step above the rest. I looked at many colleges before making my decision and haven't regretted it at all. The athletics are great, academics outstanding, and the people fantastic. Our campus is beautiful and the history is deep. I actually took a class in Old Main which was a very neat experience. My dorm for the past year was cozy and got to meet many people, eight of which I now call my best friends. The Razorback Marching Band really is the best part of my campus experience. Since I was involved, I met so many people who have really helped me in many areas. If you are looking at being in the band in any shape, way, or form, you really should put U of A right at the top of your list. There is no way to go wrong here- they strive to help and always want you to be the best you can be.
