The University of Arkansas Fort Smith (UAFS) was established in 1928 as an extension of the public school system in Fort Smith, Arkansas. It was known originally as Fort Smith Junior College until 1950, and it initially only occupied 15 acres. Today, the UAFS campus has approximately thirteen buildings in which classes are held in. There are several buildings that are on campus that do not hold classrooms for learning such as the Smith-Pendergraft Campus Center, the Boreham Library, the Business Center, the Recreation and Wellness Center (RAWC), and the Lion’s Den. There is a total of 66 campus buildings and facilities on and off campus, and there is 1.16 million building square feet maintained by UAFS (“Why UAFS”).

One building that is not new to our campus, but certainly grabs the eye of many students by either a positive or negative way is the building Gardner. Gardner is one of the oldest buildings on the UAFS campus, but besides the unusual layout that can be an inconvenience at times, the building has history, character, and beauty that out ways the negative any day.

Originally founded as the Arkadelphia Methodist College in 1890, Henderson’s official name was then for the second time in its history changed to Henderson-Brown to honor Walter William Brown in 1911.

At the beginning of the decade Henderson-Brown had only eighteen students in its senior class, reaching a peak of only forty five seniors throughout the decade. Many buildings were featured at the beginning pages of the yearbooks, though a girl’s dormitory was never pictured. This subtle sexist attitude towards
Please accept this personal statement as a part of my application for the doctoral program in criminal justice starting the fall semester of 2016.

I am looking forward to the opportunities your program has to offer and I believe my background and perspective in criminal justice will help enrich the program, as well.

I, Flora Ajayi, was dismissed from the Nursing program at The College of New Jersey due to my performance in Principles of Microbiology (BIO 144) and Anatomy & Physiology II (BIO 142 ), which are major Nursing prerequisites. I take responsibility for my academic progressions and understand the consequences and rewards of the Academic realm. The study habits that allowed me to flourish in high school, for example, studying class notes and reviewing a week before the exam, simply did not work in college. This forced me into a state of panic, which led me not to do well in both science classes. Studying effectively in college is different than studying in high school due to the rigor of the course and my attempt to process on a higher academic level. My inability to succeed in the sciences during my spring semester, despite my early success, has allowed for both personal growth and self-reflection while repeating BIO 144 and BIO 142.
The Student Government Association, a student lead organization aimed to improve the campus community, has established several goals they would like to accomplish during the current school year, 2015-2016.

The publics were divided into two groups, students pertaining to the senate and students pertaining to the student body. Therefore, the next stage consists in performing research regarding the goals SGA has established by conducting surveys and focus groups on campus.

A majority of high school graduates are likely to be nervous to a degree about their first year at college. Students may report being nervous for the reason that they don’t know how to navigate through the campus effectively, they feel unsure about where they fit in socially, or they happen to be unfamiliar with the university’s culture. Much to my surprise as a first-time freshman, the University of Arkansas at Monticello provided various activities for students throughout the fall semester. Certain activities have proven to be more beneficial than others. A few events I have attended included freshman orientation, grabbing lunch with a classmate, viewing a show of fireworks with my friend, and taking a stroll through the campus. Out of the four, I benefitted greatly from the stroll through campus.
Accounts payables are short term debts a company owes to its creditors. Notes payables are usually written contracts and long term debts companies have promises to pay its creditors. Accrued expenses are recognized by a company before they are paid for. An example of this would be a tax bill received from the town or city the company is located in. While all of these are recognized as current liabilities on a company’s financial reports they are all recorded in different time frames. Account payables are recognized when they are incurred and the payment of them is also due at the same time. Where both Notes payables and Accrued expenses are shown in the current liabilities but are due at a future date
