Out of State Students that are paying the same tution as Arkansas Kids need to have their's raised. Unless things have changed drasticaly, the out of state students get treated better than in-state kids at the UofA. Lots of kids from Texas at the UofA because it is cheaper than UofT.

@KnuckleBall: Where do you get that claim from? I know the UofA draws a lot of Texas kids nowadays (it's sometimes nicknamed "The University of Texas at Fayetteville") *and* it's rather easy for students to claim Arkansas residency after a year in school, but unless they manage that they pay MORE than in-state students. I seriously doubt they're treated better than true Arkansans, but so what? The Southwest Conference is dead; long live the SEC.

We have one politician claiming that "healthcare is a right" .....to me, what is more a right should be a college/trade school/ education. Paying the UofA over $9100 a year, plus lodging and meals is ridiculous. Even more so, the cost at UALR. Give every Arkansas student the right to a free post-high school education (with some stringent grade requirements) and we improve the economy and quality of life for all of us.

I'd be curious to know why UALR now costs MORE than UAF.
