South Arkansas Community College—or "SouthArk"—is a comprehensive community college based in El Dorado, Arkansas. "Comprehensive" means that we offer a lot of different kinds of education and many different services. The "community," in our case, is not only our four-county service area (Union, Chicot, Bradley, Ashley) but also the places located outside of that area, and even beyond. The educational quality that students receive at SouthArk is a matter of pride for us. Our class sizes are smaller than typical university classes. Our staff is known for the care and concern that it shows for individual students.
Beautiful and cozy, SouthArk's facilities also are state-of-the-art. We actually have three different campuses: Our West Campus in El Dorado, our East Campus in El Dorado and our Education Center in Warren. At SouthArk, rapid enrollment growth over the last few years has led to the opening of two multi-million-dollar buildings and the renovation of several others. We have a wonderful student center (which includes the lunchtime favorite SouthArk Bistro), library, gymnasium and a multitude of other facililities designed to accommodate student needs. Our grounds are serene and well-kept with study and recreational areas both indoors and out.
Graduates of SouthArk who immediately enter the workforce have good reputations for employability. Those who graduate and then transfer are known for exceptional academic abilities. It also costs less to attend SouthArk than it does other colleges in the area, so whether you want to come here to complete your educational journey, or if you intend to take some coursework before transferring to a university, you will save money, learn—and have fun while doing it!
