4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I have almost no complaints about my school! It's affordable and the community here on campus is amazing.

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Um, I don't take part in any of that mess, but basically everyone I know does. Most students smoke pot and most of them drink. Everyone knows someone who deals or is 21. Partying is a big thing here, I think. Arkansas can get pretty boring if you don't like being outdoors. It's probably like this everywhere though. Just your average college campus.

1 College Sophomore

Transportation: Our city is too small for public transportation. We just have a shuttle to get students to and from the softball field and to and from Bear Village Apartments.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I live in University Park Apartments. They are by far the best apartments that I've looked at in Conway. They are not at all affiliated with the university and they pay the water bill. The price is the best for the quality of the apartments here. University Park is touching UCA's apartments called Bear Village and there is a shuttle system there to get students to and from campus. Since it is so close to the campuses apartments, the UCA police frequently drive through so there isn't much crime. So if you live in University Park or Centerstone, you are close enough to walk over to the shuttle to save money on commuting to school!!

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I've never lived on campus, but I spent my entire freshman year hanging out in Short/Denney. The dorm life is SO fun! UCA had multiple living options and they are all very nice. Some of the older buildings are pretty sketchy, but i still think they are fun. I think it gives them character.

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: I love Conway! They call it the 'City of Colleges". There are three or four colleges/universities in out tiny town. We have bowling, a new and large movie theater, a strip mall with Old Navy, Kohls, Target, Dicks Sporting Goods, Best Buy etc., tons of local thrift stores, a sweet game store called Game Point! It's basically heaven in there. We have a small book/entertainment store called Hastings, three Walmarts, go-cart racing, and Little Rock is just half an hour south on I-40!

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: The police are always there to walk you to your car if it is late and you feel un-safe. They will unlock your car if you locked your keys in and they are always available when needed. The Student Health Center on campus is so amazing! You can usually get an appointment the day you need one! They give cheap prescriptions and are very patient and understanding.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: I'm not really into the sports scene...

3 College Sophomore

Parking: The parking is dreadful if you have a 9AM and are running late. There are never any spots open out on the skillet or in the parking lot across from Win-Thompson hall. But, there are always spaces back behind Papa Johns! We have a rather large parking area back there, you just need to be okay with walking across the street to get on campus. Just park over there and you'll always find a spot. Most people don't realize that that lot is UCA owned.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: Our campus isn't very strict on a lot of things. We have strict parking, the cops LOVE to write tickets for EVERYTHING. Other than that I've seen basically everyone get away with anything. One of my friends even had a cat living in their dorm for an entire year! But the campus police do regular rounds. I've known of a few people that have gotten kicked out of the university for drug use on the campus.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: One of my favorite places to eat here in Conway is right around the corner from campus! It's called Pitza42! It is a local place that serves pizza on pita bread, salads, soups and a few other options. Their pizzas are amazing! AND for each meal you buy you feed someone in need! It's like Toms but with food. The owners of Pitza42 are currently building a new restaurant called Tacos4Life. It is an amazing restaurant that has an amazing cause and it is a wonderful and affordable addition to our community. You can look up the mission video on Youtube to learn more!

4 College Sophomore

Majors: It's just an undergrad program so it wasn't hard at all you basically just apply for UCA then declare as a Linguistics major or minor. Our Linguistics program is the only one in the state! It's only a few years old, but our department is growing very rapidly. We already have over 50 majors/minors in just a three year span!
