          • 1991-1994, Bachelor of Arts (BA)

            ATU offers a quality and personable education. It is like home away from home. Beautiful campus and beautiful people. I highly recommended.

          • 2011-2013, Bachelor's Degree

            Nursing ProgramI completed my RN-BSN at ATU. It was a phenomenal experience. The instructors are excellent!

          • N
            2000-2002, Bachelor of Science

            ATU is one of the top universities in the state of Arkansas!At Tech I had a wonderful learning experience during my 3+ years studying to complete my Bachelors of Science degree in Computer Science. My degree has greatly contributed to my 14+ years of success being an Information Technology Specialist. They have very knowledgeable staff, excellent new facilities with cutting-edge technology resources available to both their staff and students. Also, they have a well balanced student to instructor ratio giving an instructor the opportunity to get to know each individual student on a first name basis rather than just as a student number in a lecture hall. This in turn results in more one-on-one learning time outside of the classroom! Great job ATU! Keep up the great work! Lastly, I am very pround to say that I'm a Wonder Boy alumnus!
