Why should you come to the University of Arkansas? Look at our students, faculty, graduates and facilities. We think it's an easy choice.

Who will be sitting in the desk next to you?

Students at the University of Arkansas engage in research, invention and development — even the undergraduate students — and so could you. The university has more than 200 programs of study, from history to engineering, from drama to geosciences, from accounting to logistics, from animal science to landscape architecture, and everything in between. More than a fourth of our students take classes abroad during their college career, but they call the University of Arkansas home.

Where will you live while at Arkansas?

On campus, residential halls provide a warm home away from home, and the Arkansas Union gives all students social opportunities to meet outside the classroom. You can also exercise with friends at the campus fitness center, on the indoor climbing walls or in the Olympic-size pool. And the Ozark National Forest and the Buffalo National River are a stone’s throw away.

Who will be your teachers and mentors?

Professors at the University of Arkansas explore life on Mars, imagine new ways of expressing art, and challenge the old methods of health care, education, commerce, and agriculture. When Bill and Hillary Clinton taught law at the university, they weren’t yet known on the national stage, but they had a contagious energy and passion that spread to their students. Today, professors with the same drive and spirit are teaching courses at the University of Arkansas and inspiring students like you to change the world.

Who do you want to become?

University of Arkansas graduates are the chief executive officers of national and international companies. They win national and international awards for their creative writing. They nurse the current generation and teach the next. If your goals have more personal meaning -- perhaps you want to bring clean drinking water to the forests of South America or deter genocide in sub-Saharan Africa -- you’ll find professors at the University of Arkansas who are experts in those fields and can show you how. You can set any goal at the University of Arkansas and achieve it. The learning requires discipline, desire and inspiration, but that’s what our professors bring to the table.

"It doesn’t show up on the stat sheet," recalled Carolina wide receivers coach Lance Taylor, McCaffrey’s position coach the past three seasons at Stanford. Star Lotulelei Jerseys "It doesn’t show up on any highlights or anything because it was called back. "But it was just an unbelievable, freak-of-nature return." You’ve heard about the "wow" factor McCaffrey has brought to the Carolina Panthers' offense as a running back, slot receiver and wide receiver.

You’ve heard how the eighth pick of the draft has juked out middle linebacker Luke Kuechly and others to the point running back Jonathan Stewart said nobody in the NFL will be able to stop McCaffrey one-on-one. Cam Newton Jerseys Well, oh by the way, McCaffrey is just as dangerous on special teams. The 5-foot-11, 205-pound dynamo didn’t return a punt or a kickoff in Carolina’s preseason opener against Houston. There are no guarantees he will in Saturday’s preseason game at Tennessee. There’s no real reason to risk injury. Greg Olsen Jerseys But McCaffrey is listed first on the depth chart at punt returner and as a backup as a kickoff returner. You can bet he’ll be a weapon when the regular season starts.

"He's a home run hitter when it comes to the return game," Taylor said. "He's special, just like all the other phases that we’ve seen him working." The Kansas State return that didn’t count magnifies that. Jonathan Stewart Jerseys Taylor recommended Jim Skipper take a look at it before the draft, when the running backs coach asked for a few examples of what McCaffrey could do. "Ten minutes later, Coach Skipper came back in and he was like, 'Hey, man! This guy is pretty special,'" Taylor recalled. The Panthers arguably haven’t had a punt-return specialist this special since Steve Smith in his first three seasons (2001-2003). Smith returned four punts for touchdowns during that span, two coming in 2002.

There have been only four other punts returned for touchdowns in team history, all by different players. Kelvin Benjamin Jerseys This isn’t to suggest McCaffrey will be returning punts for touchdowns like Devin Hester, who holds the NFL record with 14. McCaffrey had only one punt return for a touchdown at Stanford, a 63-yarder in the 2016 Rose Bowl against Iowa. He had only one kickoff return for a touchdown, a 98-yarder against California in 2015.
