The Professors at Arkansas Tech University is very understandable and will take time out ot help you if they see that you are failing or need help. Not only that you can talk to them about whats bothering you and they will listen and even give you advice not only are they professors but they are friends as well. There are many courses to take and big class rooms to be in you will not be cramp and you will be respected of your space.

Arkansas Tech University is one of the best decisions I have ever made. During my freshmen year I met many people that's caring and very dedicated to their work . The professors and Dr's are really understandable and will take time just to help you strive in their class and in you field. What i love most is how this college is very diverse and have a feel at home type of nature. My Favorite experience would be when they host all different kind's of events that you could invite your family and friends to join and to see everyone getting along laughing , dancing and etc is really the best feeling anyone could have. I would choose my school again its affordable social and everyone is respectful and joyful.
