Quick Facts

The University of Arkansas, the flagship campus of the University of Arkansas system, resides on a former hilltop farm overlooking the Ozark Mountains to the south. At the university's founding in 1871, the site was described as "second to none in the state of Arkansas".

Today, the University of Arkansas encompasses more than 130 buildings on 412 acres and provides nearly 200 academic programs, more than some universities twice its size. At the same time, it maintains a low student-to-faculty ratio (currently 19:1) that makes personal attention possible.
