BETTER, TOGETHER 

 

With enrollment of just over 12,000 students, 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.
