What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love UCA! Campus is really clean! The food options are limited. The WIFI stinks but they are working on fixing it. The teachers are really helpful and nice. I always feel safe when I am walking around alone! The English Department is absolutely amazing. UCA takes education and safety seriously.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's a great school! Everyone is friendly, helpful, and it doesn't seem far away from home. The food kind of lacks in diversity (It's always pizza, burgers, and fries with the exception of one line which isn't great most of the times) and the meat isn't always cooked. Stores are far to walk too from campus but they're a short drive. Over all, I'm happy living here for college.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love the University of Central Arkansas! I came here for 1 semester right after high school. Unfortunately at that time, I was unable to continue for more than just the semester. Now, I'm a 29 year old. I am very punctual and dedicated to pursuing a career in the nursing field, so it was a no-brainer for me to decided to further my education on this campus. It is a beautiful campus with many resources to ensure student succession rates. The academics are, in my opinion, the best in the state.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

UCA is a great school, one who values academic success and social interaction. The communication between students at UCA is outstanding. It's easy to make friends, even your best friends (GO GREEK)! The school's campus is beautiful, especially during the spring and summer time. Most classes are of a small size which makes it so easy to really get in touch with your classmates and your professors. All professors are very supportive and very helpful, and they are never too busy to assist. The campus is clean, the food is great, and the people are amazing. UCA is such a great place for any student to further their academic career; recommend​ ten out of ten.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Its fantastic! The academics are great and the professors are always available for help. The dorms aren't the best because they're old. However, UCA has steadily been improving the rooms and are currently building new ones. Off Campus housing is usually reserved for athletes. Anyone who attends this university will have the best four years of their life.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a really good college! I went to a two year college prior to here and it was not very good I cannot even explain how happy I am to have transferred here to UCA. The professors are nice and will help their students with anything they need. I would recommend anyone wanting to get a great education and a first class experience to go to UCA.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Central Arkansas has a beautiful campus. The campus size is not too large, yet not too small. One will not get lost trying to navigate the campus, yet it is large enough to not feel claustrophobic. The University of Central Arkansas offers plenty of opportunities for a student to find his or her place. This campus has over 200 registered student organizations, hosts students from over 15 different countries, and offers about 100 different majors. Settled in the heart of Conway, Arkansas, UCA is a melting-pot of cultural and adventurous activities. Whether it is hiking or fishing, enjoying Reynolds Performance Hall or Baum Gallery, or simply enjoying the city of Conway, campus life at UCA is never dull. As for education, this school embraces the sciences. This school embraces the arts. Everyone in every major is embraced. You are not a number at the University of Central Arkansas. You are a person looking to further their education. You are a person with a dream. The faculty and staff at UCA will work alongside its students to make these dreams become reality. Overall, the University of Central Arkansas is the epiphany of excellent schools to attend in Arkansas. Even if one is from out of state or country, I highly recommend applying to UCA. Go Bears!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I feel like they are a lot of opportunities here for student involvement and outside involvement. The Reynolds performance hall always has something interesting lined up for the year were they bring in talent outside of UCA. I was able to see Josh Radnor (Ted from "How I Met Your Mother") in person thanks to this. But back to student involvement: there are so many different organizations and clubs that UCA can subsist itself by providing something for anyone with a passion. UCA realizes that not everyone is the same and that one should embrace what makes him or herself different.

What is the stereotype of students at your school? Is this stereotype accurate?

The stereotype of students at school is diverse, so I don't know how to answer this. This is part of UCA's mission statement: "We actively pursue and seek to retain a diversified student body, faculty, and staff. We seek to enhance interaction and understanding among diverse groups and cultivate enriched learning opportunities in a global community."

What are the most popular student activities/groups?

Getting into an RSO to learn about leadership and giving back to the community. There are a lot and if you can't find one, just ask anyone who works at the Student Center. They will direct you in the right place.

Describe the students at your school.

A majority of students I see at school are achievers who know what they came to UCA for and what they want to leave with. There are a few students who don't know yet what they want, but will figure out.

What are the academics like at your school?

The academics are fairly easy if you can take organized notes. The professors are interested in seeing each student do well as long as they are trying and showing much effort.
