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.

3 College Freshman

Academics: it is a lot of hard work and hard classes, 5 chem classes to become a bio major, on top of my 10 bio classes

4 College Freshman

Academics: Most of the professors at UCA are very hard working with educating their students. UCA has good study programs and the registration process works efficiently.

4 College Junior

Academics: Geography offers so many possibilities, and it seems to be a growing field. The faculty are really encouraging and helpful; they very obviously love their subject and want to share it.

5 College Freshman

Academics: Through my personal experiences so far, UCA offers some of the best academics in the state! Professors are extremely helpful, encouraging, understanding and friendly; which is honestly, the kind of prof I would prefer! The classes you take are completely under your control, so you can make your workload as light or as heavy as you desire! I don't find any of my classes, even gen-ed's, to be "boring" or uninteresting. And to be offered the 4-year plan to attain my BSN, or the "fast track", I've really been soaking in all of this information and I've truly enjoyed my freshman year thus far!
