5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I live right off campus and I can walk to class from my house, which saves me the trouble of driving and finding a spot to park. It is very convenient.

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: People in Conway have many options to have a good time.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are so many options in Conway and they stay open late because it is a college town.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: The campus police do a great job enforcing the rules, but also not making it like a prison. We have a great police force.

2 College Sophomore

Scholarships: The financial aid office is not very helpful at all. It is not the people, but more so the process of receiving financial aid. There are many hoops you have to jump through to get the aid you need.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: The student center is really good and has many options, which I like, but the cafeteria is not very good at all. The deserts in the cafeteria is the only good part about it.

4 College Student

Administration: Feel safe and sound when on campus

3 College Student

Scholarships: UCA needs to give out more money for academic scholarships

Campus Food: Food was pretty tasty just long lines

Campus Housing: Dorms seemed kinda cramped but mostly looked great

2 College Freshman

Scholarships: I barely received any financial aid from my school, and parents were stuck paying the bulk of it. UCA hardly offers scholarships.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: Parties are really fun and exciting, I really enjoyed them.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Options are good, many nights me and my friends would order a pizza from Papa Johns at 2 in the morning while we were studying for tests all night!

Administration: UCA isn't really that strict on things like underage drinking and stuff like that. Some students have gotten in trouble for having drugs in their dorms though.

Campus Food: The café food is really bad on campus. They have the same meals everyday and don't offer much variety. However, I do enjoy the omelet station in the mornings because you have the option to make your own fresh omelet.

Campus Housing: Overall, it was okay living on campus. You meet a ton of new people and get to be involved in everything going on at campus. Also its easy going to class on time because all you have to do is get out of bed and go. I didn't really like the dorms because they cant be very cramped and dirty, also had a bug problem.

4 College Junior

Athletics: Intramurals are extremely popular especially co-ed soccer (they will play games in the actual football stadium lights and everything at midnight on a weekday when it's well below freezing) as well as flag football. Actual athletics are okay. Football starts off fine but attendance declines as the season progresses. Basketball is attended if there is a big game going on.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: The thing is Conway is really mixed up so you never know what you'll get. The sketchy areas are really sketchy but there are plenty of people I know who live in these areas just fine. However, there are break ins that occur especially over breaks. THE HOUSING IS A MUCH BETTER DEAL THAN UCA HOUSING, but of course they don't tell you that. I recommend looking into detail and seeing if you know people who live in the different apartments to decide where to live.

Party Scene: I personally don't party however the party scene is mainly at Hendrix College right down the street. Aside from there Bear's Den is fun on the weekends as well as the draft.

4 College Junior

Administration: The police are very nice and help out when you ask. Every class is different your syllabus is your friend when it comes to attendance policy. Parking after certain times means you're probably going to have to walk a little more than you want, but there is enough parking available that you shouldn't be more than a 10 min walk away from your dorm. Tickets are really cheap to pay. Campus can be noisy in the sketchier dorms however come finals week it's fairly quiet.

Scholarships: If you are a transfer student and you receive the scholarship understand it only lasts for 4 semesters!

3 College Junior

Campus Food: DO NOT GET THE UNLIMITED MEAL PLAN

DO NOT GET THE UNLIMITED MEAL PLAN

DO NOT GET THE UNLIMITED MEAL PLAN

This meal plan is a complete rip off. You only get 3 visits to the caf a day not unlimited as they say, you can't swipe for other people, and you can't use your meal plan in the student center which you will absolutely want that option. Go for the second or most expensive meal plan. The second meal plan if you eat 2 meals a day most days will get you right up to finals week, the other guarantees you through the semester plus you can swipe for friends that don't have meals left.

There''s 2 main food options the Caf and the Student Center

Caf: Food is not bad although every once in awhile everything there looks unappealing. On Friday's the caf conveniently closes way too early. If you go at peak hours the lines can be too long. Aside from these things it's really not that bad and you can eat healthy if you choose. Taco Tuesday's are the best.

SC: This is where the normal food is at. You have to watch out however because it is easy to eat unhealthy every time you go there. That being said there are healthy alternatives available. Everything here is fine the only complaint/recommendation is don't go during peak hours.
