Am learning a lot
I previously went to Henderson State University, and attending class, but didn't really learn anything, and had no incentive to, as the professors didn't really care whether or not I succeeded at their establishment. Professors at UAM, however, are quite dedicated to their students, and I've been very interested in what I'm learning and getting along better with my professors.
Am enjoying being here
The people at UAM are amazing. It's like a little family. I've never been in any classes quite like the ones I'm involved in for my major, where all the students intimately know each other and have each others' back.
Bang for the buck
UAM is very affordable. In fact, they set up their fees and tuition so that students getting federal/state funding can easily attend their school without going into major debt.
Tips for prospective students
Don't be afraid to ask your professors for help. That's what they're THERE for! And they're all very eager to make sure their students do their best.
Great for these types of students
UAM is full of older people who want to go back to college. Also good for lower income families. I transferred there myself because of the cost of attendance.

University of Arkansas at Monticello is a great university in my opinion. There are many professors willing to help each and every student in need of help with their classes. Also, there are a great variety of groups and organizations available for the students here to help give the a better perspective of the major they are getting into which is helpful.
Tips for prospective students
Ask your professors for help if you need any. They do not bite and will not make fun of the questions you have. They are there to help.
Academic Rigor
Classes are not as hard as they seem as long as you pay attention. I have a 3.3 so far.
Dorm Life
I do not live on campus, however, I have heard from my friends that live on campus that dorm life is great. Don't stay up hanging out with friends for too long though.
Food and Dining
Each week the foods are changed from cultural aspects. Sometimes there'll be Italian food or Chinese food. It is great!
What to do for fun
I participate in clubs whenever there are meetings or go to movie nights with friends and go bowling in town.

The University of Arkansas is a GREAT school for education. I wouldn't choose any other place. It is home away from home.
Tips for prospective students
For future students, you would love it. Everyone, including the teachers, are friendly and will help you if you need it. I made friends really quickly!
Academic Rigor
The classes are hard classes, but the teachers make them easy because they are always there by your side to help you. If you don't understand something you can ALWAYS go to your teacher or advisor's office and get help. The door is always open.
Dorm Life
The dorms are pretty decent and a nice size. There is PLENTY storage space and stomping ground for you to walk. My roommate and I made our room really comfy for the both of us so it's really enjoyable!
Food and Dining
The food here...is AWESOME! Everything is buffet, and there is even a place where you can make your own ice cream.
What to do for fun
We are in Monticello, Arkansas which is a small town. There is really not much to do in town except the movies, bowling, and parties. Everyone LOVES going and hanging at the pond in the middle of the campus. It is really peaceful and beautiful.People usually go to neighboring cities to go to the mall.
Bang for the buck
The campus is small enough that you can walk around to your classes in less than 10 minutes. You get such a great vibe when you step on to campus, like you've never left home. The teachers and faculty, along with other students, will help you feel welcomed.
Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus
There is a place called the MBSF where we have church and it is open 24 hours. We play ping pong, pool, video games, have cookouts..anything you could name!
