Our students never settle for less than the best from their university. 

The Second District Agricultural School was created by Act 100 of 1909 of the Arkansas General Assembly. It was decided on February 10, 1910, to found the school in Russellville. On October 26, 1910, the first classes were held in Russellville. The original purpose of the school was to offer classes leading to a high school degree. Later on, the school took on the first two years of college instruction, and the school’s name was changed to Arkansas Polytechnic College by the General Assembly in 1925 to reflect this change in purpose. At this time, the course work leading to a high school diploma was phased out and in 1931, Tech formally only offered courses leading to a college degree.

Recent history (1976–present)
The school took on its current name of Arkansas Tech University on July 9, 1976.

In the fall of 2003, Arkansas Tech University announced it intended to take over the state vocational school, Arkansas Valley Technical Institute, in Ozark, the seat of Franklin County. As of July 1, 2004, the Ozark campus has acted as a satellite campus of Arkansas Tech and has begun offering coursework leading toward an Associate of Applied Science degree in various subjects.

On Oct. 23, 2013, Jerry the Bulldog was adopted as Arkansas Tech’s campus ambassador after a 76-year absence from the school.

From 1997 to 2015, enrollment at Arkansas Tech has increased by 183 percent. The fall of 2015 marked the 17th consecutive year that Arkansas Tech has established a new institutional record for largest enrollment at 12,054 students, also officially making ATU the 3rd largest institution of higher learning in the state of Arkansas.
