At the U of A, I feel as if people are genuinely nice and care about what I have to say. I have made some great friends through the various college classes I have taken. I love how big the school is, but also feel like i dont get lost in the crowd too often. There is PLENTY of school pride. Just ask anyone on campus, or in Arkansas for that matter, how to call the Hogs. You will get the standard reply of Woooo PIG SOIEEE!
Some of my classes at Fayetteville have been large lecture classes where the teacher has no idea who I am, but I have also taken honors classes where the teacher always notices when I am not in class. The honors classes are definately my favorite, even though they are considerably harder. I feel as if I make a better connection with the professor, as well as the students in my classes, in a smaller setting. I have to study an extremely large amount compared to a lot of my friends. Because I am taking honors classes, I always have homework. Students are very competitive, especially in the harder majors. Outside of class, there are plenty of opportunities to discuss your ideas and theories about anything you desire.
There is a large percentage of White Americans on campus, but African-Americans and Hispanic races are also represented. I have friends of all different races on campus. I think everyone can find a place to fit in here. A lot of people wear sweat pants/comfortable clothes to class. Sometimes girls will dress up, but I feel as if that takes waaaaay too much effort! It seems that many people attending the U of A come from a wealthy financial background. As for myself, I did not come from a wealthy family, so I definately think it varies from person to person.
