    It isn't the party school I was told stories about, but as a regular school it isn't all that great either, but the campus is always abuzz with stuff to do so that's great. The honors college offers amazing opportunities Dining hall is pretty good. Meal trades are really what made me rate food so high! Great choice for an out-of-stater. Generally happy and friendly campus. If you're not in greek life, you feel left out. The huge greek presence makes the campus feel cliquey and high schoolish. ...Continue reading

    Some areas need improvement. As a student ISIS is hard to use and sends you in complete circles. It is completely archaic. My community college had a less messy system!

    I love Fayetteville. Fayetteville is an amazing little town and I feel like all the cookie cutter sorority girls and fratty rich boys really taint that. However, it does provide for some fun parties so it isn't all bad. Getting around without a car sucks too. But it is possible. . barely Northwest Arkansas has a vibrant economy, making it a great place to find internships and jobs at respected companies including Tyson, J.B. Hunt, Walmart, and of course all of Walmart's vendors such as P&G and General Mills. If you go to Arkansas, major in business. ...Continue reading

    Fayetteville Arkansas is a beautiful and fun place to live.

    It's clearly a Greek life and athletics centered school which in my opinion is a major strike. If you enjoyed being spoon fed and can't let the high school days go, you will like it here. Frat life is saturated, students are apathetic and lethargic. Too much of an emphasis on social life, and the teachers are more of the same. Get used to graduate assistants, they will be your teachers. The U of A overuses TA's. Junior profs are rude, elitist and take great joy in failing you. Too many are bottom of the barrel educators and do not communicate well. Students are graded on how well they're liked and whose clique they're apart of. ...Continue reading

    Trevor is okay, average TA, he knows calculus but sometimes makes simple mistakes and doesn't really teach it, just puts problems on the board and walks around while you work.

    As long as you show up for class, you will pass. He is a grad student, and I think I remember him saying it was his first year teaching. He didn't do that bad of a job, but it did seem a lot like of definitions out of the book on his lecture slides. His tests are not definitions. You actually have to study because he uses them in scenarios. ...Continue reading

    Dr. Di is the Gordon Ramsey of Computer Engineering. If you say something dumb in class, he will roast you like a marshmallow. This is one of my favorite things about him. He misses class a lot because he's kind of a legend in his field so he has to fly to random countries or the Pentagon all the time. He really is my favorite professor. Smart man ...Continue reading

    You guys, there are some people complaining about the no use of technology but c'mon you are paying for this class... The lectures can be boring but the material is basically common sense. He takes clicker points everyday & if not many people show up he will give you bonus points for attending. TAKE NOTES b/c most pop quizzes are open note! Its not an easy A, just put in some effort & you'll do great. if you have questions just email him! Textbook is not needed. LOs are online, those help alot. At the end of semester he drops your lowest quiz grade. Does pop quizzes which makes you go to class but lets you use notes so take them! Just pay attention, take simple notes, tests are easy and you'll be fine. ...Continue reading

    Lectures were long and boring when they actually happened. Most days were spent watching videos and filling out worksheets about said videos. It's really great, important material, but she doesn't convey it well. I didn't do any reading, and I passed with a B. Take the quizzes and pretend to pay attention during lecture and you should be fine. ...Continue reading

    Dr. Dingman is a really good guy. He is clear, helpful, and most importantly he actually teaches the content. His tests are the hardest of all the Calculus 1 professors, but it makes the departmental midterm and final easier for you. Take Dingman if you want to somewhat enjoy your math experience. ...Continue reading

    Ms. Namakshi is an awesome teacher. Shes so nice and she really cares and puts effort into the success of her students. She is very good at teaching. She is always willing to go above and beyond for any of her students. You could not ask for a better math professor than this amazing woman. The U of A is lucky to have her. ...Continue reading

    Torsten is a good professor for Ethics, he gives you around 15 quizzes and only counts 10 of them. If you study the review questions and know the slides then you are good for the tests. He has 5 small writings and only counts 4. Overall a good professor, and I would recommend taking him if you don't mess around like most people. ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 3/5
    He is a good teacher but not the best. If you just read the bare minimum for the class you should pass. He grades his tests really hard but doesn't grade his papers very hard. He only holds class for about half the time allotted so that's really nice. Even if you don't know a thing about ethics he makes it seem not to bad. ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 4/5
    If you plan to take Ethics, take from her. She cancels class at least once every week. There are 3 exams and a final (which she canceled) and they are all essay format, taken online- and easy grader. Class attendance isn't required but if you don't go you will be lost. She is enjoyable to listen to in class and a very interesting person to talk to. ...Continue reading

    literally just do your work on time and show up most of the time, easiest class I've ever taken ----- go to the review sessions attendance is not mandatory but to pass the test just go to class. The TA's are awesome and help a lot. Get the book, vocab is a life saver for the test. His class is easy if you actually go to class and take notes. He gives weekly quizes that can help your grade a lot if you do good on them. ...Continue reading

    Easy class. Not a hard class but I can not stand to listen to her voice. She seems to get some things confused and never corrects them. Be prepared for the stories of her grandsons and how they are profiled. ...Continue reading

    If I only had one hour to live I would spend it with her because this class takes forever. Grades are all tests, but just review the study guide and you should be fine. Attendance is not mandatory, which is good because being in the class is an incredibly large waste of time. Difficult to stay engaged because she goes off on so many tangents. Doesn't really know her stuff, and can get just plain annoying. Pretty rude, too. ...Continue reading

    He's pretty good. Could be better but could certainly be worse. I am an avid math lover and manyyy lectures I was completely lost, however if you TAKE NOTES and refer back to them it eventually makes sense. The CalcCorner in Champions is a must--TAs on duty every hour and help so much. Homework is very hard but tests are reasonable and curved ...Continue reading

    By far my favorite professor at the university. She makes a not so fun subject enjoyable. Go to class, take notes, study the night before the test and there's no reason you shouldn't get an A. You can tell she loves what she does and she genuinely cares about her students. ALOT. she's extremely passionate and enthusiastic which keeps the class fun. she's very funny and helpful. requires one paper that is only 1 page. have to study for tests though. ...Continue reading

    I thought Dr. Barnum was a very fair professor. His expectations of us were clear, and the lectures were usually very interesting. Also, if you don't understand something, you can meet with him or his TA's to discuss it. It's not the easiest A in the world, but you don't have to overwork yourself to get it. ...Continue reading

    Terrible professor. I took Cal I in high school and passed with a B. In this class, it is the same exact material but he somehow made the concepts 10 times harder. I end up teaching others how to do some problems because I can explain it better. I'm sure he's a great guy but he does not deserve to be a Cal I professor. ...Continue reading

    Van Horn Morris is an alright professor. He is incredibly smart, and willing to help, but his class is difficult. Be prepared to work hard! Lectures are not helpful as he goes incredibly fast, and his handwriting sucks. He is incredibly passionate about math and is smart. (He is not a terrible professor but average. Take him over bad options)! ...Continue reading

    boring lecture but easy class. lots of extra credit. tests come straight from the online quizzes. quizzes can be taken as many times as needed, she takes your best score. if you show up to class, she gives bonus but it is not mandatory. lectures are not relevant to the test at all. watch a lot of random videos. there is no reason not to make an A. ...Continue reading

    Easiest Gen Ed ever. You work in groups for everything. You have no tests. The only grades are 2 papers, and 10 quizzes. She will drop your lowest two scores.

    Karen Sebold is a very enthusiastic political science professor that allows students to easily become engaged in her lectures because of how clear she gets the information across. She gets so into it and really knows her stuff. She does start lecturing right at the class time so be on time. Overall great teacher, I am taking more of her classes the next semester! Gives out quizzes that also take attendance once in awhile but you get 5 absences. Her lectures are truly amazing and so easy to absorb the information given. I'm taking another one of her classes next semester! ...Continue reading

    Only take Griffis if you like watching youtube videos in class instead of her actually teaching. 80% of class time is spent watching videos, something that can be assigned out of class. Easily the worst professor I've ever had. The class itself is easy and can be interesting but Griffis ruins it. ...Continue reading

    Dr. Wheeler is an amazing professor. I struggle in math, soI just wasn't able to understand her lectures, but she was VERY understanding, helpful, and supportive.

I wanted to retake her. ...Continue reading

    Never again. His tests were very hard and although he gave a study guide, they were very vague and didn't prepare me. I studied for HOURS in advance and the highest grade I got was a 78! Also HORRIBLE group project. The good thing is that he does give you an opportunity to get 10 extra credit points on your test. That's how I got an A. ...Continue reading

    He was a tough grader. Takes attendance. He's mean and strict. He gave me an 89.67% average and wouldn't round it up even though I never skipped class/was a good student. I emailed him about it and he just chose not to respond. He favors certain students and is mean to the ones who aren't EXCELLENT Spanish speakers. ...Continue reading

    He was pretty easy on grading as long as you studied and showed up. It was difficult because you had to remember certain things you used in lab and what they were used for, but other than that he didn't really care about a lot or yell at you. He was nice and understanding ...Continue reading

    Trevor is okay, average TA, he knows calculus but sometimes makes simple mistakes and doesn't really teach it, just puts problems on the board and walks around while you work.
