The old health center up on Maple Hill is under construction and is being turned into this:

this is in direct response to the nursing school enrollment. this will allow us to enroll something like 200 new students in the nursing program where NWACC can only allow 40-50 and will alleviate pressure off UAMS & Baptist.

I've also seen a really cool rendering of proposed new dorms up on McElroy Hill.  Basically they would start adjacent south of Gregson.  The building would be similar to the new ones up on Maple Hill, but they would replicate the architecture, color and style of Gregson, and stretch all along that ridge there and basically wrap along side it in front of Yocum, almost to McElroy House.  The parking west of Yocum would either go away or be greatly reduced, and the road going down the hill there to hook up with Stadium would go away/be absorbed by the trail system.  That would look really cool from down below.  I hope it happens.  There's a rendering out there but I can't remember where it is.  It seems like there is a kind of castle-looking tower section to it, too.  I have always thought that part of campus needed a tower of some kind where people could go up and look off into the mountains.  The views there are already great.  Maybe they'll find some way to build those and incorporate something like that into the design.

And here's a pic of the new Nanotech Center next to Kappa Sigma.  This is an old picture, as its pretty much finished with landscaping and lighting installed.  Its a handsome building that kind of mimics the colors of Old Main.  Its impressive driving up onto campus via Dickson:

Alive.  Funny you posted that, as every time I have thought about a tower on campus, I have thought about the same thing.  Texas figured out a way to open their tower and keep people from shooting/leaping to their deaths from it.  Surely we can figure it out.

I like the way they planted trees down Garland leading up to Maple street. Makes me wish I was going to college there. God I miss Fayetteville! :'(

Arkansas offers those kids more prestige than North Texas and Sam Houston and we make it affordable by othering them in state tuition rates if they meet certain guidelines. If you get a percentage of them to stay in state and start their entrepenuerail here or better the talent pool to offer corporation looking to locate here, it's helping out the Arkansas as a whole. Look at how many NEAers never went back east after coming to school here.

Fayetteville also represents a "real town" rather than another municipality in the mass of giant subdivisions in North Texas.

If I was in Texas, and couldn't get into UT or A&M, Arkansas would be an attractive choice whether my family had any ties here or not.

Yes, it was definitely the best 4 (er...5) years of my life.

Good things are happening up on the hill.  Not only are sports on the rise, but academics are as well.  Mark my words:  within 10 years the UofA will be a consensus top-25 school in a majority of its departments.

I just wish there was more tech companies in NWA so I didn't have to move to DFW to find a job.

that's the problem.  too many people trying to park right in the middle of campus.  lot 56 is almost deserted, but no, lazy assholes don't want to ride the bus, then complain when they cant find a spot.  #soapbox

I had this conversation with my son his freshman year. He ended up leaving his ride at his sisters and used a scooter. Never heard another peep about it.

and the snobby girls like my sister don't wanna ride the bus.  she is trying to find a small apartment for next fall since she lacks one more semester to graduate.  She kept ranting about how even if she lives in some apartments on leverett behind the Kappa house, she'll still have to walk a ways.  I mentioned taking the bus and she looked at me as if I was crazy. 

Don't all freshmen currently have to park down by the baseball field?  That's basically like not having a car because who wants to walk all that ways when they can catch a free bus everywhere.

 It is funny that the parking garages around the UofA, especially the ones closest to the Stadium have never been to aleviate the parking problems. The garages were just to accomodate ticket holders($$$) to Football and Basketball games.

 I was in one of the greatest shapes in college when I lived off campus and either walked to campus or took the bus when I lived at THE College Park apartments. The only time I drove to campus for class, was my last semester when I had senior design class for six hours and stayed after to work on my project or study. I was parking on the West side of Razorback stadium.
 
 Sounds like some of these people like your sister want to look like the majority who pose for "People of Wal-Mart" when they leave college.

Some people just don't want to be Aggies, the culture is weird.  I don't want my kid to be one.  UT is such a good school that even though I grew up hating it I have to respect their academics.

I can't tell you how many families around here in Arlington that have kids looking at UA, it's a lot.

I never had a parking pass in four years.  Always rode the bus or walked.  Pay a little more to live near campus, and you can walk to the bars, too.  Starkville I did that before there was a fancy hiking trail.

There are more than a handful of people here in Irving that have mentioned their kids looking into the UofA.  Every single one of them that have made the time to come visit have walked away impressed.  The academics are comparable to any university in the country in my opinion.  I dare say I learned more and had better relationships with my undergraduate professors in Fayetteville than I do getting my graduate degree from a more nationally "renown" university.

...and academics aside, anybody who isn't won over by the UofA after the wonderful drive up 540 once you hit Fort Smith simply doesn't have a soul.
