Arkansas - Fort Smith Student Reviews

2 College Freshman

Overall Experience: My overall experience has not been a good one. The University of Arkansas- Fort Smith is not the university for someone looking for an amazing college experience. This university is the university for someone that wants to attend college but stay close to home and keep the same friends that they made in high school. When I say that I mean that everyone here knows each other from high school. This university has been a horrid experience but has been an educational one. I know exactly what I don't want in the university I plan to transfer to because of my UAFS attendance.

Academic Flexibility: Class scheduling is fine IF you get it done as soon as possible. Teachers will try to work with you if you show that you are trying in their class.

Facilities: What sets UAFS apart from other colleges and universities is its ability to function as a high school. When I say this I mean it! There are very little campus activities and when they do pop up they're mostly movies. RA's will schedule things for their floors and five people show up and they're mostly the international students. When there are dances people stand up against the wall... literally like the movies. There is minimal night life and a very small social scene. Coming here was one of the worst and best decisions of my life. Worst because I put myself in a horrible situation that I regret everyday I wake up and now I have to go through the transfer process (Which isn't bad in itself.... I'm just saying if I didn't come here I wouldn't have to do it.) Best because it taught me so much about myself as a person. I now know I can get through anything as long as I stay focused. (I say stay focused because I had to stay focused on the fact that I will get out of here as soon as the Spring Semester ends.)

3 College Sophomore

Facilities: I'm mostly on campus for class and going to the gym occasionally. I do like the availability of computer labs and that even during a class, if there's an open seat, most professors will allow extra students to sit in and work on computer based work.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: I like it so far. I am studying Mechanical Engineering so the workload is pretty busy especially since I work too. I feel like it's a good program though. I am learning a lot as I go through.
