Dubbed "The Natural State," there's much more to Arkansas than one may think. Not only does it boast 600,000 acres of lakes and the home of a former president, but its cities - like Little Rock - are full of culture and dedicated to the arts, and its smaller towns are full of friendly people and breathtaking scenery. All are fine places to live while earning a college degree.
