3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: People do drink and use drugs but you can still have a great social life without them and have plenty of fun and friends.

2 College Freshman

Transportation: I don't have a car here and really wish I did.

4 College Freshman

Academics: I love the academics here! The professors care about their students and the programs offer great opportunities. They have an academic success center with free tutoring, professors will meet with you often if you go during office hours, registration is easy--except classes close early if you are a freshmen. The library is often full, a lot of people meet up and study there, its great to stay focused an get work done.

4 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: The campus really is not strict, and doesn't affect life much. I haven't heard of it affecting anyone.

3 College Freshman

Diversity: A lot of international students are here, and so there is quite a bit of diversity which is widely accepted.

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Conway is a pretty great town; the people are extremely friendly, there are scenic parks and trails, lots of places to eat, and an average amount of shops. If you want nightlife and more attractions or shopping, Little Rock is only about 30/45 minutes away.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: On campus is very safe. Police will give you an escort if you do not eel safe, the campus is well-lit, they have a police station right in the center of campus, and dorms have security cameras. Outside of campus some crimes have been reported.

2 College Freshman

Nightlife: Parties aren't that good. There are no clubs in Conway, and no club/party type of places for underage students. Since it is a dry county you have to drive to buy any alcohol, and the bars don't let underage in after 10-12 at night.

College Freshman

Parking: I do not have a car, so I cannot really give an opinion, except i hear parking is pretty terrible.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Personally I do not eat off-campus a lot because I do not have a car. However there are plenty of options and I enjoy eating off campus when I can. There is variety of cuisine and cost, plus everything is withing 15 minutes drive. Places to check out that are local would be Stobys, The Market Place, and Mike's Place.

4 College Freshman

Computers: The library has a lot of computers, as does the success center. You can easily print from these locations for five cents per page. The network works well unless someone installs their own router, hogging the connection. The wifi is the same and is easy to connect to. You don't need a computer but it really helps! Especially on the weekends.

College Freshman

Campus Housing: Living in the worst dorm--Conway-- I can say was not the best, but you can easily make do for the on year (its only for freshmen). However, most of the other dorms are super nice. Also, the campus has on-campus apartments that are a great option. Nothing is outrageously priced, but it's of course more expensive to live in an individual room. The locations are conveniently placed near building for classes, but the social atmosphere is not strong at all. Housing is not difficult and they easily explain the process.

4 College Freshman

Weather: The weather is great. The spring and fall seasons are long and warm; the winter doesn't get too cold and is relatively short. It rains a lot, but not ever for more than a few hours. It's often sunny. Overall, it's great!

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: depending on which house, the greeks can be snobby are or really nice. all their parties suck though

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: great city to be in

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I feel perfectly comfortable walking my campus day or night
