5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: This school has a variety of options and the teachers are super accommadating! It does have a lot of work going into the classes depending on your major, but it is all worth it! I've made some great friends and have a friendship with some of my teachers. The environment of UAT is calm and amazing for such a small school. I highly recommend it!

Tuition & Financial Aid: The process of accruing finances for college/university is, by its nature, excruciating. However, UAT's financial aid department has been very helpful in answering questions and pointing me in the right directions to get things done, and to begin working on scholarship funding. As with my other experiences with UAT, it has been enjoyable and very productive.

Academic Experience: Once more, I haven't actually begun school yet. That won't be until next February. However, I have done a great deal of research, and the admin at UAT have been very forthcoming with answers when I wish to know more about a particular class, its requirements, purpose, and expectations. I do know that UAT does a focused, one class at a time approach, which is the very style of learning I work best with.

Academic Experience: The registration process was extremely simple. Rob Walker helped me to understand any particulars I wasn't entirely sure of, and encouraged me to step out and be bold in what I presented. The whole process was completed over the course of about an hour, and I had an acceptance within a week. I paid my retainer fee, and began the process of getting funding around as UAT waited patiently for my transcripts. Taken in whole, it was an entirely enjoyable experience.

Campus Resources: I'm going to be studying online, so I cannot rate actual on campus resources. However, the admin that I have worked with have been most helpful, and quick to answer any and all questions I have had regarding classes, enrollment, computer requirements, and most anything else I wasn't certain of in the process of enrollment. I would definitely recommend UAT, just based on my current experience, and moving forward.

Academic Flexibility: There is a range of classes and times. The only class that has been "in the way" was a production class. For the specific class you met the two normal days, but then on Fridays you would have to meet from 11:30 in the morning and work until 7 at night.

Overall Experience: UAT has such a friendly atmosphere in my opinion. When we came for a visit over spring break, during my senior year of high school, they were in a meeting, also called in-service. There was a student ambassadors sitting at the front desk that gave us a tour of the school and we met one of the administrators. We had a great talk about the school with her and she answered all of our questions. One of the classes that caught my attention was the Japanese Language classes, and the administrator we were talking to when and got the Japanese Language Professor and we got to meet him. I originallt was going to a different university, but after seeing UAT I was hooked. I did visit the other college a couple of days later but they couldn't compare to UAT.

Overall Experience: The professors are super friendly. They want to help the students as much as possible and provide valuable feedback for them. The variety of courses for the General Education could be better, but as far as degree specific they cover a range of topics! The class sizes are pretty small compared to a normal university.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: UAT is a wonderful college. It is filled with friendly and helpful people. The faculty, staff, and professors are happy to help the students and each other. You also see people smiling and having fun. The campus is small so you get to know a lot of people. Unlikely bigger colleges, the professors know your name and they talk to you outside of class about non-class related topics. Everyone here genuinely cares about education and helping the student find jobs afterwards as well.

4 College Sophomore

Student Body: There is a diversity as far as ethnics, religion, and politics. There is a huge different with gender though. It is a majority male population at UAT, then there are the females, and we have a transgender community as well! As far as I can tell everyone is pretty accepting. There is also "cave trolls," or people who tend to stay in their room, unless the have class or need to get food.

Tuition & Financial Aid: With it being a private school it is to be expected that it would be expensive. When you enter the school you do have a fixed rate so it does not go up as semesters go on which is great!

Career Services: It is a little harder for the Game Designers to find job because there is a lot of us. The Career Services people are very friendly and helpful and answer your e-mails or phone calls in a timely manner. They also call students to do a check up on them mid-semester in order to figure out if they are doing okay or if they need help. Once registration opens I usually send and e-mail asking they if they have and recommendations for classes and they got back to me the same day! The alumni network is amazing. Alumni are always coming back to the school to talk to the students and to help out. They do presentations and tell about their time during school and how they got into the industry and what they have been doing since.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: I'm really enjoying being in the Game Design degree. There are a lot of friendly people to help you. The workload can get hefty but it is all in good practice. If it wasn't for the professors basing their classes and assignment off of what the industry was really like, then we as students would not be ready for it.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: For the more "main courses," such as math, science, humanities, and literature/english classes, I feel there needs to be more of a variety. Being in a Bachelor's of Art major we are not required to take math classes. They are a combination of math and science course, four in total. So, I would like to see more variety of those, they list them as special topics.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: I've had a great time here! The people are nice, the professors know your name, and some are good friends. The professors genuinely care about the student's education and success! Some of which are from the industry and came to teach upcoming students how it really is out there.

Academic Flexibility: My teacher responded fairly quickly when needed and would even provide some help, problem is it didnt help a visual learner like myself.

Academic Experience: My first programming class was quite difficuly and what made matter worst was my teacher didn't think to cater to everyones learning needs. I luckily passed with a D which made my summer GPA 2.75 which is horrible.

Academic Experience: I love the classes they are challenging but usually not too challenging, except that programming class.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

Students come to learn a lot at UAT. They may start with little to no knowledge about their field of study, but by becoming students, they soon learn the realities (both harsh and enlightening) of the industry and field, and what is expected of them over the years spent studying at UAT. Through the help of peers, professors, and project work, students come to expect great things in their future. What makes the school unique is the experience. For every major, the professors follow a rule of thumb: the student will always learn more when exposed directly to his or her work. When the students start to strictly apply themselves and do it over and over and over again, they learn more.

As only one part of the learning process, the professors at UAT allow students freedom and allow them to directly experience the discovery for themselves. One thing the school lacks is sports and events that take place on campus. UAT needs more events to encourage the students to get outside of their dorm rooms a little more. Other than that, the school has a great atmosphere to do what the mission statement says: "Learn, Experience, Innovate."
