As a currently attending student, UAFS has been very excellent. The professors I've had have been understanding and caring and willing to work out any issues or problems. The food available is from a good selection. It's very interesting to get to know and meet people from other parts of the world!

As far as education goes, this is a premium experience to have as almost all of my instructors not only care about how well I'm doing in class, but also about my future and want to make sure I excel in life. My only complaint is that it needs more food options on campus!
UAFS is actually a really good school. Most people think that just because it’s a smaller campus, that the teachers and facilities are bad. But they’re really not!
