YOU KNOW WHAT THEY SAY ABOUT ALL WORK AND NO PLAY


Unwind after a challenging class by exploring ATU's on- and off-campus recreational offerings. 

Russellville’s Aquatic Center and Bona Dea Trails are right off campus if you're looking for a swim, a jog, or cycling. If nature is your thing, hiking trails and kayaking waterways are only minutes away within the vast Ozark National Forest and state parks in addition to water activities on Lake Dardanelle. And ATU provides free outdoor equipment rentals to students.

So many activities, so much to see and so much to do. Slowing down might be a challenge. But when it’s finally time to relax, you can unwind at one of more than 30 area restaurants that offer discounts to Arkansas Tech students. With a movie theater, dining of every variety, a vibrant downtown area and the comforting feel of a small town, Russellville can help you find some rest within your busy student schedule. And then there’s always the hammock and a good book, beckoning from the shade.
