What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

First, apply to all the colleges that you are interested to, and visit them. Sit in a classroom and listen to the lectures. Second, apply for every financial aids you are eligible for. They are a lot of ways to get money to fund for your college experience, but you have to be willing to look for it. Third, get involved on the campus because thats how you find friends, and find things you like to do outside of school and studying for you courses. Getting involved and being social can be a nice break from the rough courses and the studying. Last, if you can afford it, live on campus. It beats having to get up and fight for a parking space, and most of all its a great way to learn how to be independent, and find a lot of new friends that will end up being your friends for life.

What's unique about your campus?

The best thing about our school is how well the students help each other when another student is in need, and how the faculty provide the same help. The professors have a fixed amount of offive hours every week, and they are very flexible when you need to contact them whether it be via e-mail, by dropping by there office, or calling them they are always willing to help you.

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

I wish i would have known more study skills before coming here, but it wasn not hard to adjust and learn what you needed to learn to succeed in your academics because of the help from the students and faculty.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Parents, let your kids choose which college they get to go to, don't hold them back for selfish reasons. They only get to go to college once, so let them go where they want. They won't let you down by not learning, they'll actually try harder, to make sure you won't be disappointed. They may make some bad choices, but you live and learn. They'll do better after learning how not to do it.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

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.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

That it isn't the school that I wanted to go to.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Remember that picking a college because it sounds neat is not wise. Make a pros and cons list and think about all of the options. Get involved on campus, and find out what your school has to offer...you'll be suprised what you find they have.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

A person who likes one on one time with the professors, and a person who likes campus activities but would also like to be able to hold a job and half a life outside of college, although this is not true for the performing arts degrees.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The most frustrating thing about this school is the fact that it is so conservative.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

If I were going to give advice to someone I would first off say you should just choose whats feels right to you. Dont make your decision based on your parents or someone else. You should go on a visit to the school and after that you will know already if its right for you. I knew when I came to The University of Arkansas at Fort Smith it was the right place for me academically and athletically! I hope you make a wise decision as to which school you choose. I know I did!

What's unique about your campus?

Here's your chance: Say anything about your college!

It is Community College that went to a 4 year University about 3 years ago. As a result it still feels like High school and I have never been in a class that has more than 40 students. It is very friendly and all of the Professors are teaching oriented, they don't do research so they are only there to teach.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

My advise to finding a college is to start looking during the students senior year of college, or even junior year. This is because you not only need to find the right college, you have to apply, find scholarships, financal aid, and more. Don't forget that you will be spending the next 4-6 years of you life there. Also find what you want major you want to declare. I've seen many undeclared students spend money on useless classes when they don't have too.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Find a college that has almost everything that you want, dont settle with the first one that you see, find one that there are student resources that will help you study or relearn thing things in class that were not tought well, And last find one that you can afford when they secretly apply charges to you account and you have to pay for them.

Describe how your school looks to someone who's never seen it.

Honestly, my school promoted cheeper tuition and avalablitly of classes but when it came to advisement and help I was a little on my own, but I was able to get in some of my classes that I needed for a transfer.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

There are some critical points that need to be addressed when looking for the right college. The main concern would be the avalabilty of the classes you need to obtain your goal of a degree. My advice would be to meet with professors and advisors before making a choice as well as looking into what the everyday students say not just the ambassadors that are selected to promote the school. They are there to tell you all the good but in times forget to mention the bad. Question everything and know everything there is to know about a school and its workings. Just because tuition may be cheaper does not mean the school is going to have what you need. Find what you need and then make a decision. As for making the most of your college experience, find a balace between work and study. Make the grade and make friends, they will both help you in your college life and social life and make it an easier ride for you. Enjoy your college experience to the fullest you only have it once.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The most frustrating thing about my school was when I was told I had to have so many hours before I could speak with an advisor, and then there were so many classes that were not available that were in the course catalog.

This school is accelerating academically rapidly, full of opportunities, but still needing some administrative organization.

Describe the students at your school.

My classmates at UAFS are fun and motivated.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Find a school that makes you feel comfortable when you first walk on campus (yes you should visit a campus that you are considering spending a great amount of time attending). Research multiple opportunities and schools and allow no limit to your search; remember that you can begin narrowing choices later. Keep in mind the cost of your education when making decisions such as housing and living expenses. However, realize that sometimes spending the extra money up front will allow you to focus more on the quality of your education while you receive it rather than scrimping through your college journey which could create more work in the long run. In other words, prepare yourself to be successful and make awesome grades. College is an intense amount of work but should be fun so become involved socially. Lastly, follow your heart and have fun learning and earning more opportunities for your life!

Describe how your school looks to someone who's never seen it.

U A Fort Smith was my first choice and one that I would do again. I love going to this college and I believe that it is a great school and the professors and students are helpful and very friendly. There is something for everyone and always something to do. The campus is cleary marked and the classes are easy to find.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

You have to pick a school that is right for you. You have to apply yourself by putting 100% into your education. Don't wait and go today.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

Need more financial aide. It would be nice to have someone to find all the scholarships you are eligiable for and help you to get them. The cost is not real high but a person in my situation needs all the help I can get.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Someone that like the big cities and lots of excitement.
