I take online classes through UAFS. It has been tough, but the teachers and staff are very helpful! They are quick to respond to any emails I send. The work is challenging. Sometimes I feel overwhelmed with the amount of reading, research papers, test and quizzes, however I know it is in my best interest for my future.

The campus is great. The staff are friendly to students and try to get to know everybody. It has a nice atmosphere, and I am excited to finally get to attend full time soon. The courses are very helpful and the workload is manageable. There's no complaint about this college. The clases offered are plentiful and the clubs have interesting and fun options. The dorms are nice and has great security and veery modern designs, being as it get upgraded every few years. The food is tasty and their are many options like Chick-fil-a. This campus has a bad reputation in the area, but it's definately not true in anyway. Overall its defianately a great college and would recommend people to attend.
I really enjoy UAFS! Everyone here is always willing to help and happy to see your face no matter what time of day it is. It goes as far as the resident assistants to the lunch ladies. I am here during COVID and the precautions that they are taking are very smart and safe. I also feel safe walking around campus no matter what time of day it is. The campus cops are very nice and willing to help at all times.
