Southern Arkansas University (SAU) is celebrating a momentous achievement with a record-breaking enrollment of 5,128 Muleriders for the fall 2023 semester. This remarkable milestone showcases the university’s commitment to providing top-notch education opportunities and a supportive campus environment.
One of the significant contributing factors to SAU’s success is the university’s dedication to offering in-demand programs and a “culture of caring” approach. This has resulted in a 14% increase in freshmen enrollment, as more students recognize the value and quality of education they can receive at SAU.
The graduate enrollment numbers at SAU also continue to be strong, with 1,876 Muleriders pursuing advanced degrees. The affordability and convenience of SAU’s graduate programs, coupled with the university’s commitment to delivering a high-quality education, have made it an attractive choice for those wishing to further their education and excel in their careers.
SAU offers a diverse range of graduate programs to prepare students for future challenges. Notable programs include the Ed.D. in Rural and Diverse Educational Leadership, which equips educators with the skills to address the specific needs of diverse communities, and the Master of Science in Business Analytics, designed to equip students with the analytical tools and strategies needed to succeed in the business world.
Ensuring that students have a welcoming and comfortable living environment is also a priority for SAU. Campus Housing provides a home away from home for 1,800 SAU students, a 4.5% increase from last year. Students can enjoy a sense of community and convenience while pursuing their academic goals.
In addition to academic and housing developments, SAU continues to enhance student life by providing various dining options on campus. Tacos 4 Life, a popular food court restaurant, has recently opened its doors on campus, joining other well-known retail options such as Chick-fil-A, Subway, Starbucks, and Panda Express. This diverse array of dining choices allows students to satisfy their cravings and enjoy delicious meals without having to venture far from campus.
