  • “The U of A became my home away from home since day one! Being an international student can be hard especially because of how far you are from your family, but this place made me feel welcome! I have made the best memories and have met the most amazing people here. I wouldn’t change this experience for anything else! Once a Razorback, always a Razorback!”

    “When I was applying for a [Fulbright] scholarship,

    I named the University of Arkansas as my

    first choice for a PhD program in Biological

    Sciences. I was intending to work with my now

    major professor/advisor, who is one of the most

    productive researchers in my field of specialization...

    The stunning scenery and outdoor recreational

    pursuits were just a pleasant surprise.”
