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

Make sure you let your child go for what they want. If they fail at their dream, they have the satisfaction of knowing they tried. If they fail at your dream, they know they were dragged down. Always try to ask existing students of the college how the college has treated them

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

The administration here cares about their pay checks and how the media and public see them. THey don't care at all about the students or helping them get a degree.

It is close to my family and the grounds are beautiful. The classes are smaller than most of the big universitites that I looked at. The location is good, in a smaller town that is not a big college town with lots of drinking and drugs. You don't find much of that around here.

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

I would tell the future college student to make the most of the college experience. Make lots of friends and particapate in college activities, clubs and groups. The friends that you make in college will be with you for a life time. Also, college is a once in a lifetime experience, don't let it stress you out and make it less fun than it can be.

The most important thing to remember is to keep your options open. There are many great school's out there with amazing teachers, classes, organizations, and other activities. It is important to pick a school that feels comfortable for you. To make sure that you like the learning environment and social environment as well. Take your time and pick the right size school for you and has the things you like to do. Make sure you are happy were you and it is where you want to be not where someone else wants you to be.

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

As parents or students, finding the right university can often be stressful, frustrating, or difficult. The easiest way to find the right college is to take a campus tour and see what the university has to offer, such as majors, minors, and extracurricular activities. After you have decided the college that you will attend, all you have to do is to cherish your experience in college. Make the most of your college experience by exceeding in your classes, making new friends, and participating in activities that interest you. Also, be open-minded. Just because you have not participated in a play before in your life, it never hurts to give it a try in college. Try new things, have fun, and enjoy college while it lasts.

Describe the students at your school.

Classmates help each other, learn the materal, try to succeed in both online and in-class situations, learn in many different ways, and represent UAFS proud.

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

I would tell parents to encourage their childern to attend college, and to find what they are interested in. Let them know that it is ok to change your mind. Students need to take General Education classses the 1st two or three semesters until they fully decide on a major. That way expense and time isn't wasted on classes taken the 1st semester and changing degree plans. Tell students to enjoy each college class and take CLEP exams in course work during your senior year in high school.

What's unique about your campus?

I like the fact that UAFS offers AAS degrees to allow students to get some college course work and also work in the workforce and then return to college to further their education.

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

Everybody wants to go to college for a better education, but I would let parents and students know that you can get the same education for fractions of the price if you go to smaller schools. Going to the University of Arkansas - Fort Smith as opposed to the big school in Fayetteville, I am saving tens of thousands of dollars and getting the exact same education. The only difference I would say for picking a larger school is for social reasons. I believe that one's college experience should be educational of course, but it is also supposed to be fun. College is where you are going to meet the people who you will know and keep track of for the rest of your life. Social life is going to be better at a larger school because they have the money to do so. Basically whatever school you choose you will get out what you put into it. I am attending a small school and am having a blast and wouldn't trade my experiences here for anything. Good luck.

What's unique about your campus?

The students are awesome! Campus activities are awesome to go to because of all of the friendly people who are always there.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

How conservative and stubborn the Admin. are. They are not very open to new things that would engage students. They want to run this university like a high school.

Class are small; thus, teacher may help you one on one if time isn't a factor in class. Out of class though, they'll be happy to help anytime.

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

Start early and try to get scholarship to help as much as possible because college can get pretty pricey. Study just a few time is all you need for a good grade.
