I loved the WATC program it was an amazing high school experience, and I hope to see more people join it. You get to experience what it is like to be in college classes instead of the boring high school ones. I promise college is so much better. Go Lions!

One big thing I love about UAFS is all the positivity on campus. The students want eachother to succeed and the teacher and staff want to see all the students succeed. There are numerous resources here on campus to make your time there a little bit easier. There are many computer lab, drop in tutoring and a super helpful and friendly Library staff. If I could enhance one thing on the UAFS campus, it would be the times some clubs and events are held. They make it so helpful and a nice transition for non-traditional students, such as myself. I know not everyone works a Monday-Friday 8am to 5pm and have kids, but for those that do, I wish things were a bit easier to join or attend. Over all though, I would give UAFS two thumbs up. I appreciate everyone there and their wanting for every student to have a success story.
Amazing school! The campus is beautiful and great for exercise. Lots of places to connect with classes, students, and teachers. Computers are always in reach for homework.
