Coming from such a small town in Central Arkansas, I was pretty nervous about moving away from home and transitioning into a bigger town. Arkansas Tech made it easy for me to find a place to fit in and become a full-time resident of the campus. With an ideal student to faculty ratio and the friendly faces of the university, I took advantage of the countless opportunities to get involved and enjoy my time here, academically and socially. I have learned that being a Tech student means being a part of something more; I became part of the nation's fifth fastest growing university, I became part of the third largest university in the state of Arkansas, but most importantly, I became part of the Arkansas Tech Family. It feels great to be home.
