Company Profile
The University of Arkansas boasts a tradition unique among the nation's universities: Senior Walk, consisting of more than three miles of sidewalks crisscrossing campus that are engraved with the names of more than 150,000 graduates, dating back nearly 140 years. It’s concrete proof of the university’s commitment to our students. That 'students-first' philosophy is a big reason why the U of A is consistently ranked among the nation's top public research universities and best values.

The Carnegie Foundation classifies the university as having "the highest possible level of research," placing us among the top 2 percent of colleges and universities nationwide.
