The university is really good. Since I have been there, all the teachers that I have had care about me and try to help me as much as they can with any trouble I might be having in their class. There are many events happening every week on campus and they also vary. There are lots of opportunities to get involved.
The campus is fairly safe although I take safety precautions anyway just to be on the safe side.
The people on campus are also friendly.
I enjoy going to this university and I'm glad that I have the opportunity to go here.
Overall the college is pretty good, the teachers are accessible and the people around campus are helpful and nice. It is small school, most people know each other and it is a very nice place for those that don't want to go to big colleges, even though the degree options are very limited.
I Love This School!!!!

If I could advise my high school self, I would tell myself that no matter the cost, I should go to the school that I want. I should not settle for a school just because it is cheaper. I would also tell myself that there are so many more scholarships and federal funds for which I could have applied. I would make sure that I studied more in high school and learned to use study groups to prepare for college. I would also make sure that somehow, I lived on campus. I believe that one cannot get the full college experience without being fully emersed in student life and having to interact with other students in academic and non-academic fields.
I do not feel that my high school did a good job of preparing me for college, or that the University did a very good job of making me feel like a part of their instituion instead of just a number.
It doesn't have as much classes as other universities. Foreign languages, for example, i wanted to take Korean, but they don't have it here.
Well UAFS is my dream school as a child and,it has wonderful educational opprotunities and many social events to get envolved in- I love it!
The first time I came to school I was 18 and immature. I now have a two year old son. Im married. I wish I had understood how lucky getting to go to school is for a person. It's a blessing and you shouldn't take it forgranted.
My classmates are all theatre majors, and we are a pretty weird bunch.
I think the wide variety of students on our campus is the best thing about my school. I think this because it allows all of the student to be exposed to different cultures and their views.
It gets really frusating when you're trying to finish that last question for your online class and the connection stops becasue the wifi is down. Which is a lot.
This school has some professors who really care. I may say a few times that is still more like a community college in many ways, it's very small and most people who attend here do so out of convenience, Fort Smith is the second largest city in Arkansas population-wise. However, the degrees are valid and accepted in many other places, especially in Arkansas, Texas and Oklahoma.
This is a very diverse school and its very easy to fit in and get involved.
I came from a small town and the University of Arkansas Fort Smith has the educational value of a large university with out the large size. It does not over power you by its size like some of the larger university in Arkansas .
My school is very well known for their engaging faculty.
I believe anyone can attend this school as long as they are serious about their education and willing to do the work and study.
I admit to being a nerd. The college even made a nerd lounge for us nerds. Other than that there are no stereotypes.
The academics can be challenging at UAFS but if you stay on top of your homework you will do fine.
I think the most popular student activities/groups would be the sororities and fraternities on campus.
fun and stressful if you don't your homework
My professors are nice.
Basketball and baseball that about it.
There's a lot of food options. It changes everyday.
The library. Unless your a music major then the breedlove building.
