Welcome to Northwest Arkansas
The New School's spacious 25-acre campus is located in beautiful Fayetteville, Arkansas, which is also home to the University of Arkansas. Northwest Arkansas is the hub for several Fortune 500 companies including Walmart, Tyson and J.B. Hunt Trucking. This growing community with more than 500,000 residents, has a well-regarded national reputation as a vibrant arts community, which features the world-renowned Crystal Bridges Museum, the Bentonville Film Festival and the Walmart Arkansas Music Pavilion. In 2010, Fayetteville was named a “Bicycle Friendly Community” by the League of American Cyclists. Since then, the city has continued to expand its extensive bike trail system, connecting parks and major Fayetteville landmarks. The city has planned nearly 100 miles of trails to be completed over the next several years. Residents enjoy Northwest Arkansas’ family-friendly lifestyle. The rolling hills of the Ozarks and natural landscape feature beautiful lakes, parks and trails for hiking and biking and other recreation areas.

Known as the “Crown Jewel of Fayetteville,” the Saturday market is alive with street performers, local musicians, community organizations, tourists and locals alike. Up to as many as 70 vendors set up around the beautiful, historic square gardens and represent the diversity of the area.
The Walton Arts Center group of theaters, including the main performance hall located at the center of downtown Fayetteville, Trike Kids Theatre, and the Walmart Arkansas Music Pavilion (the AMP), offers entertainment and enrichment activities for residents of all ages. The Walton Arts Center has performances throughout the year, from award-winning authors to Broadway musicals, while the Trike Children's theater actually uses local children actors in all their performances. The new AMP allows residents to enjoy live music and the beauty of the Ozarks in the state's largest amphitheater.
