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.

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.

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.

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

I would not just look at one college. Try to get as many scholarships for at least three different schools. By doing this you can simply weigh out the positives and negatives at all three schools. This in return will allow you to make a good decision regarding the college you plan to attend.

What's unique about your campus?

Academically focused!

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

I feel as though the fraternities and sorities are trying to take over!!

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

Dear prospective students/or parent, The right college should be determined first most by the quality of the faulty and real world experience of which the faulty have. Next would be the cost of the education at the university. After those two most important attributes would fall; the living situation of the student (on-campus vs. off-campus living) , quality of university buildings/classrooms, physical aesthetics, distance from parents, and helpfulness of university administration. The college experience should be well balanced with both social and educational situations. Universities allow students to expand both mentally as well as socially. Study hard, and play hard. Join as many university extracurricular activities as you can without impacting your grades. This is done for two reasons. Firstly to allow new students to meet people/develop new friendships, and secondly to allow you to take a break from your studies.

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

Administration is lazy and unresponsive to students needs. In most cases they go about things ass backwards.

What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

Great looking campus, good professors, and low cost.

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

To talk to students who have been through the program you will be applying for. To only go to school if you know your ready to commit to a big responsibility. To go to a school that will help you with scholarships, or that has an abundant amount of scholarships available. To always look for what is more convienant and affordable for you.

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

The nursing program. It is horrible. There is not enough time to learn everything that they put before you and you learn most of it on your own without teachers help. They have powerpoint presentations that you are required to read before class and then they just read them to you. Pretty stupid if you ask me and a waste of my time. Also, If you fail a test you are out of the program and are forced to with draw, no matter what semester you are in. A true waste of the students time and money.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Only those who are comitted to working hard and learning the material. Those who want to work on a bright future for themselves. Those who wish to succeed.

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

I really dont know. I would say chose the school that offers the degree you want to excel in and try to be involved in the school activities. Don't be shy, try to make many friends while you are there. Don't forget to study and finish all work that is given to you to inable you to became better in your degree. Find a school that offers financial aid and make sure that you understand the terms of the financial aid that is offered. Just get out there and enjoy.

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

The University of Arkansas at Fort Smith is a college devoted primarily to practical professions and getting people prepared for jobs as soon as they get out of school , however, it lacks in opportuntities for study in abstract fields.

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

To students looking for the right college I would like start of saying that the single most important thing to picking a college is being prepared. Make sure to be involved in anything you can at school and always work to keep your grades top notch. If you do this you have that many more colleges to pick from. When you begin to look at colleges forget what your friends are doing, they should be irrelevant when it comes to picking colleges because their needs from college may be 180 degrees different than yours. Also try not to worry about the cost to much because it might sway your decision in the wrong direction, when in the end, you will be more than able to pay your debts. However, if you took your highschool days very seriously this WON'T be problem. If you are one of the lucky ones who knows exactly what they want then choosing a major isn't a problem but, if you aren't, don't be discouraged just take it easy your first year and see whats out there. I hate to use such a cliche but the the possibilities are literally endless.

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

The worst thing about my school is the location. It is in a city of about 40,000 people and many parts of the town are old and run down. It is a town that isn't showing many signs of progress. Perhaps, I am a litte biased against it since when I came to college I was looking for something different from where I grew up. However, it is much the same only dirtier. Despite, this the college does seem to be growing but if you are looking for a fun and exciting place this isn't it.
