I am an out of state baseball player at UAM. I have been acclimated and accepted with ease. This campus is small and homey. I love how the community supports all of the sporting events. The local churches are available but not pushy. I can see myself actually living here long term. UAM is a great place to be.

Justin - 02/23/2019

IT a Very medium size and friendly college. Were people put you first. I wish there was more Dorms that were private rooms, for I don't like sharing, do not like others to have access to my stuff. Would like to be able to have the ability to cook if need be. Education is number 1 to me. I believe I can receive everything i am looking for and more and UAM

    School is my number one priority and my only option. I would return to explain to myself that education is the key to success. I would apply myself to the best of my ability,shout when I've done great and smile when I've done poorly. I come from a low income family, neither of my parents graduated, nor did they attend college, but they both still encouraged me to attend college, get a better education, and chase after my dreams. If i could go back i would encourage myself to apply for as many scholarships as possible because loans will kill you in the long run. I applyed for as many scholarship as i could and didn't recieve one. I would highly appreciate it if i could recieve this award because it would help make my life a liitle better and a little loan free.

  4. What kind of person should not attend this school?

    It actually depends on the major. Most people who are serious about their schooling and want to learn about their major and how to make it should not go here. With the exception of nursing and forestry, most of the majors here end up being worthless to the student because they don't take it that seriously. The fact that the school has open enrollment is also somewhat of an issue because not every student is here to learn and leave with a degree.
