IT'S NOT ABOUT WHERE YOU COME FROM

It's about where you end up.

There’s an overachieving spirit here at Arkansas Tech University. We’re never content with the the way things are. We’re always striving, reaching, working toward a better tomorrow. Our alumni never settle for less than the best from themselves. Our faculty never settles for less than the best from our students. Our students never settle for less than the best from their university.

BETTER, TOGETHER 

 

With enrollment hovering around 12,000, Arkansas Tech University is now the third largest institution of higher learning in the state. Despite our phenomenal growth we know it’s not the size of the dog in the fight but the fight in the dog that counts. Like our beloved Jerry the Bulldog, tenacity and grit are part of our DNA.

Determination has guided ATU faculty and staff in their design of an institution geared toward academic excellence. With a student/instructor ratio of 18 to 1, free tutoring, freshman mentors in the Bridge to Excellence program, one-on-one academic coaching, developing  a customized strategy for student success and an academic advising center, our students are never just a number. 

 

At ATU, we're a family and we help each other succeed.
