This school has no backbone and refuses toQuite BrightNursing
This school has no backbone and refuses to change. In a town where everyone knows your business or will make something up if they do not know, the community's attitudes flood the school. The nursing school cares more about you passing the NCLEX than knowing how to be an actual nurse. They rate themselves a great nursing school because of their pass rate, NOT because of the nurses they put out. If something in the buildings are broken or run down the staff pretends like the problem does not exist. The refusal to put effort into making this a better school has cost them students. The financial aid office is run by people with no experience and they will not try to help you. They will read off options and send you on your way. I did not feel safe on campus and it took thirty minutes to get a patrol car to my area after calling them. There is no 24 hour help. The campus is not well lit. The higher ups refuse to make tough decisions, because it will not make them very popular people. This will never be a well recognized institution until they hire people willing to put work into the university

This place is far worse than I imagined.Quite BrightPsychology
This place is far worse than I imagined. It may be perfect for those who grew up around the farms, but for anyone who has seen the rest of the world...I would seriously reconsider. People are stuck in 1994 here and the technology shows it. I truly believe that most instructors here would be swallowed whole if they ever had to go to a real research university. This school does not promote free-thinking, nor does it promote research and learning. Their methods are the classic memorization of text that is proven to be pointless. I went to high school in Arkansas in the 90's and I feel that I am right back in those classrooms. Its a sit down, shut up and listen type of place at UAM. As a transfer student, I'm accustomed to a group setting where discussion is promoted and where instructors actually care whether or not you care about the class. This school is perfect for you if you are: Christian, narrow-minded, agricultural major, or you just don't want to leave the area. I have no problem living around the small town and I understand the need for a school here. I do not see the need for a sub-par university where the staff and faculty seem to be more interested in getting off work than doing their jobs.

UAM have positves and negatives things like mostBrightHistory/Histories (art history/etc.)
UAM have positves and negatives things like most colleges. The postive thing about UAM is that the cost is very acceptable,and the professors are very friendly and willy to work with students. UAM provide students with a lot of scholarships opportunities. The negative thing about UAM is that it is not much to in the city of Monticello. UAM also need more dorms chocies.The campus is small and its not that much to do around campus. Basically as a student you have to make your own fun.But I love my school.

P.S If you would like to attend UAM you MUST HAVE a CAR, and make friends. Its not a bad school.
