I wish I never went to this school. I double majored in Business and Marketing in 2007. Fate brought me to Fort Smith, AR, and I wish I never went here. I should have moved on.

The faculty at the CoB was extremely helpful and challenging, however, other resources were very lacking. Fort Smith itself is a very closed off society, and if you were/are an outsider, you will never succeed. They don't want you. The "career" counselor was the worst. He flat-out denied me an internship, saying I did not need it since I was a business major. Not only that, he only forwarded me email to jobs that were MLM and janitorial work. I am sure he can do his job, only if you are one of the "good ol' boys".

The only good thing I can say beyond that is that the college credit will count towards my CPA and I am going to a school outside of UAFS. The alumni association though knows better to contact me. I squeezed four years of school in three, worked my tail-end off and worked full-time, got B's with a few A's, made only two friends because they were the only two people that did not seem afraid to actually speak to me. The other students were nice, but if it is clear you are not from there, they will not talk to you. Period.

College is supposed to network and make friends, yet they were the emptied times of my life. I am glad I had my girlfriend-now-wife who was there for me, every step of the way and still is.
