Great School!!!!!!!!!!

SFA has a lot of Resources to help students succeed like  the ARRC and a lot of activities to balance academics with fun. It's a great school and as an international student, I would definitely recommend it to others, especially internationals! While gaining your education, you would meet wonderful people from all around the globe.

studying in SFA.

SFA is a really good campus to achieve your goals. The people are very amiable. The advisers are very happy to help you in any problems you may face. There are many programs that bring students together, giving you an opportunity to meet new students.The smallness of the campus also save your time and transport expenses.

Studying is as important as having fun!

I truly enjoyed being active in student organizations, it gave me a stronger self-confidence and made my campus life more meaningful. I would advice prospects students, however, to find the right balance between activities and academics, because grades are as important as volunteering and other community activities. Without a proper balance, one might end up under-performing at school. 

SFA is the sweet spot: It is a small school, and so are the tuitions and fees. Scholarships are available for  hard working international students, which truly helped my parents with the finances. It is small in size and so are the classrooms. Professors work hard to meet the needs of the students, and they have the time to personalize service. Although it is in a small town, SFA encourages diversity, and there are opportunities for international students to discover American culture as well as introducing your own culture. 

I have found here, as an international student, that it is okay to be yourself. People are very interested in students from different background, especially if you speak another language besides English :) 

Also, the officers of the international programs were very nice, and helped me spread my wings. I truly appreciate their kindness and helpfulness. 

I am not sure whether my status as an international student has made recruiters a bit hesitant to give me an internship. I am just guessing that it would be difficult on their end, to hire someone for an internship, who will not be working for them in the long run. 

Don't forget: STUDY!!!

Let SFA be your first choice

Awesome campus with great facilities. Classes have around 25 students as an average, I guess! SFA has an advantage than other universities that it's located in a small city which allows students to do more things with no traffic and almost no need for transportation, the apartments are everywhere, so minutes and you will be in the class!
