Great Town – Russellville is such an awesome town. I'd call it a city/town. It's not so big that there's traffic everywhere you go, but it's not so small that there's nothing to do there. It's got several parks and playgrounds and natural hiking and biking trails. There are two disc golf parks, which is a student favorite activity, plenty of basketball courts, tennis courts, a golf course, and places to swim. It seems as if everyone in the town is active, from mom's walking with strollers to elderly couples taking a stroll. There is a movie theater and several restaurants to choose from. It's a great place to go to school. Alumni of Arkansas Tech are making donations all the time. Russellville is a perfect family town.

Drugs and Drinking – Drug usage at Arkansas Tech doesn't seem to be a problem. Of course there are rules against it. No drugs, alcohol, or weapons on campus. If you get caught with any of the three there are consequences. People throw parties, it's college. Underage drinking does happen, it's college. But usually people are responsible about it. I don't agree with it and there are parties on campus that involve no alcohol whatsoever. There are several youth groups to join to help people steer away from those things and to make other students aware that it is not good.

Health & Safety:
I never felt unsafe. I love the campus, but always better to be safe than sorry.

A lot of Chinese and white ethnicity, more than African Americans.

Public Saftey – The campus security is pretty decent. They are really sweet, until you get one of officers that are the worst ever. Majority of the officers are really nice in person especially if you get into trouble on campus. They walk through the dorms and would even carry on conversations. If anything does go wrong, majority of the officers come in and help. They are always there for you.

1 Semester – I failed because I got sick and my dad and Grandpa died

Golden Suns & the Wonder Boys – Honestly, I think we deserve to pass based on the choice of team names alone. But seriously, the Golden Suns (the ATU Girls Basketball Team) have really gone above and beyond in the past few years. Also, as far as intramural sports go, there has been a lot of support. One of the IM basketball teams that I know made it to the national finals at Duke University.
ATU has been updating their sports facilities, and I think they have made some nice improvements.

Lacking, but Acceptable – There is little to no public transportation in Russellville (where ATU is located), but it's only a medium sized town and I don't think this hinders anyone too much. There are many bike paths, and the campus has been expanding a lot in the past two years in parking lots alone (among other things). ATU is right in the middle of town, so if you need anything that the campus doesn't offer (groceries, etc), you don't have far to go.
Being a nontraditional student myself; I live at home, and drive to school. Obviously, it would be nice if gas was not so expensive, but I am hopeful that I will get enough scholarship money to help cover the extra expense.

Upperclassmen Get Better Dorms – The dorm life at Arkansas Tech is OK, with many of my friends living in and around me. I am looking forward to the apartments next Fall, though

Health & Safety:
No Opinion Here – I have never felt unsafe at this campus, and I sometimes do many of my activities after dark that require me to walk across the campus.

The Campus Tries Its Best to Keep Its Students Happy – There are tons of options, but wish there was more fresh fruits and varieties of different eating options available. Having most of the options so close to the campus is a big plus.

Everything Went Just Fine My First Year – I love the small college atmosphere and the professors, except one, seem to know a lot abut what they are teaching. I have been surprised at how accessible they all are, and how they want me to succeed.

Greek Is an Option Not a Necessity – Greek life is an option at ATU but it does not define the campus. Greeks don't outcast the non-Greeks. Everyone is pretty friendly and accepting.

Plenty of Options – There are plenty of different places to eat almost all of them offer at least a 10% discount and some places even offer more than that. La Huertas, New China, McDonald's, Taco Bell, Arby's, KFC, Wendy's, Colton's, Ruby Tuesday, IHOP, Burger King, Cracker Barrel, Dixie Cafe, CJ's Burgers, and Feltners Whattaburger are all very close to campus. LH is cheap, quick, and delicious. Definitely a campus favorite!

Two Campuses – My school's main campus has a wonderful sports facility and school spirit is amazing! However I attend another campus where we have no sports or any type of athletic facility. We do have a walking trail and a disc golf course, but nothing other than that.

The weather is usually very nice. When it rains it pours so girls bring your rain boots!!!

Tech could offer a few more then what they have now
Recent Alumnus 2012-05-24T19:04:56Z
They fill up fast. But the locations are pretty close to campus (some within walking distance)

The football team needs a little "team work" so they can win. But all other sports have been winning championships for the past four years.

Some of the sidewalks are really bad which can be tricky if you are disabled but they are working on them some at a time. Doc Bryan, the student center, has a lot to do with places to eat and even a tutoring center so you can get help with your homework. They recently closed the pool so that's one less option for a physical education course if that's what you like to do, but they have some other really great choices. There are a lot of activities to do throughout the week and they always do things for the students to help them unwind and stay relaxed during midterm and finals weeks. They have a pretty huge library as well!

Social Scene – Tech's campus is awesome as far as things to do, there is always something going on somewhere on campus so it's almost impossible to get bored if you live on campus or in town. The University prides itself on their sports and their sporting events are always really fun!
College Sophomore 2012-05-09T17:18:49Z
They are currently doing construction on a side road to campus which makes traffic horrible. You usually have to park quite a ways away from your building unless you get there really early. Public transportation of some sort would be nice, like a bus for in-town students so that they don't have to drive their own vehicles and take up spots that the commuters could use.

Go Greek its the best way to meet people and have fun
College Senior 2012-04-27T07:12:42Z
The parking at tech is horrible. The lots are a walking distance between each. They need better parking for commute traffic

The weather at the campus is usually a beautiful day. when u walking threw the grounds from one side to the other of campus the wind blows at your face while the sun beams down on yr head,, usually a pretty day at arkansas Tech.
