    UCA is a great school and the faculty couldn't be better. Going halfway into something here leaves you with nothing much once you decide you may not like something. Basically, the good is at the surface, the bad is just below the surface and the really good is way down there. The overall technology could use a serious face lift in regards to email and collaboration with other students. ...Continue reading

    Money is spent in weird places when there are issues that need fixed. The Wifi on campus needs some work but it's pretty cool here. The only thing I don't like is seeing the same people everyday. I almost feel like I am in high school again because the campus is so small. I would have rather gone to a bigger university. Everyone is super nice here! If you are planning on going here, join a club, sports team or Go Greek! You don't fit in if you're GDI... ...Continue reading

    Conway sucks, campus is okay The Biology department is pretty great. Health department is pretty terrible. Overall, it is a reasonably-priced, worth-your-while education. ...Continue reading

    I'm from Texas so it's a big change, but the students are very friendly and I enjoy the school so far. I'm so glad they chose me to be apart of their community! They have amazing professors and such a beautiful campus! You wont regret coming here! However, in order to get involved and find things to do you have to get plugged in. I suggest greek life or some other involved organization. ...Continue reading

    Greek Life is the best part. Other than that the school is all around an amazing school with lots of opportunity for success. Class selection is above-average for the bigger departments, but some of the arts are a little lacking in specialized classes. Campus looks great and is well-maintained. Parking is a bit rough. I have never had a poor professor in 4 semesters, but I ask around first. ...Continue reading

  • Overall school rating 3/5
    I loved my time at UCA. College is what YOU make it for the most part, so it's possible to turn that 4 into a 9. Worst: Internet SUCKS. Be ready to invest in 3G. NO CONNECTION. Also, food's crap. Best: Social within dorms. The 'residential' dorms throw events almost every other night in their lobbies. ...Continue reading

    This University, if you allow it, can shape you as a student, leader, and citizen. When there's an issue it usually is solved very quickly and the president is always fast to respond. The cafeteria is not too bad either with the very many choices they have. The student center is very great as well. Events help by the campus are always great and the campus is centered and safe! ...Continue reading

    Below average university. It's a small state school, but don't let that fool you. If you aren't religious, it is much harder to make friends and feel in on campus. Greek life is also a HUGE deal here. It's very ring by spring, and if these aren't your kinds of things, it's truly hard to fit in. ...Continue reading

  • Overall school rating 4/5
    It's an amazing school in a great city. College is definitely what you make it, so if you come in with a positive outlook and a willingness to branch out, you will succeed at almost any college, but UCA has a little something special. This is a great school to be at and people are willing to help you if they see you are making an effort in trying your best. ...Continue reading

    i grew up down the road and have dreamed of UCA my whole life. Loved the Honors College, but honestly some of the students in Honors think a bit highly of themselves. Biology Dept. had good faculty that actually try. Chemistry Dept. not as good with upper level courses. ...Continue reading

    Such an amazing atmosphere. It is the perfect size and has given me a home away from home. The students and faculty are great!

    I love UCA!!! It was my second choice college and I transferred here after I didn't end up liking my first (which was Vanderbilt) and I feel at home on this campus.

    UCA is a wonderful school. Every department is very opportunistic. There are a lot of great support systems as well, but what I like is that none of them are required. The school is set up to let you be your own person. ...Continue reading

    Great school! I can't wait for the leaves to change. There are lots of big, tall tress. It's a perfect place to go sit outside on a cool day unde The teachers are amazing, the campus is beautiful, and there is always something to do. The only downside is parking. Parking can suck sometimes, but other than that I have completely loved every part of this school! ...Continue reading

    WORST PARKING. I've had a few bad professors here and there, but overall my experience is great. I also have had issues with the financial aid office, but still wouldn't want to be at any other university! Get involved! Go Greek! And even if ou don't go Greek, there's a hundred other RSO's to get involved in. I can't stress how important it is to get involved, don't just go through college, make it enjoyable and rememberable. ...Continue reading

    This a great college, and I highly recommend attending. There are many opportunities to succeed on this campus due to the size, wonderful faculty and staff, and registered student organizations. I have learned more about myself, others, and the world I live in than I ever anticipated. I fully support this university. I PROMISE, I PROMISE, I PROMISE. PARKING NEEDS TO BE AN OPTION TO RATE. I love my school over all though. They should definitely do something better about parking though ...Continue reading

    This is such an amazing school, I haven't encountered anything bad. You'll get a quality education with a ton of opportunities. Conway is an okay town nothing special. I was disappointed when I transferred here because many of my gen-eds didn't count as credit at UCA so I had to take some over again which added another year or so to my graduation date. Parking sucks, but the shuttle helps. I love the teachers in my department (Interior Design). ...Continue reading

    Pretty good school. Internet on campus is getting an upgrade soon I've been hearing, which it greatly needs. The food, specifically in the cafeteria, is awful for the most part and requires a drink to get it down most of the time. ...Continue reading

    I love UCA. My only issue isn't even with the actual school itself. It's just too far from where I live. I plan on finishing out all 4 years here. Loving it. Although do be careful for the boys. SOME will take advantage really quickly. Had a terrible TERRIBLE terrible experience my first week, but all worked out and I'm loving it. ...Continue reading

    UCA is your best bet in Arkansas Football is usually pretty good, but the stadium sucks, just as all other sports' facilities on campus suck. Reason: the university's endowment is VERY low. There's so much to do around town, even when broke. ...Continue reading

    This school is perfect for if you're looking to just do school. Classes aren't too small or too big, plenty of opportunity on campus, and good greek life. There's a great Honors College program that rivals northern liberal arts programs. Overall, great school with nothing that could possibly be said negative about it. If you like a small school then it's for you. However, there's not much going on unless you are in Greek life. It's pretty, in a good area, but I am shocked at how the department doesn't care about the bad performance of professors. If you want fairgood professors for the most part, do not go here. Everything else is fair. ...Continue reading
