Major: Math (This Major's Salary over time)
My family and I moved to Arkansas from New England during high school. I always planned on going off to study at Harvard or MIT. However, I decided not to go there so that I could stay with family and be financially at ease for a while. If I had known that UCA would be a life-sucking experience, I would have written the check to Harvard in a heartbeat.
  • First of all, the school is full of closed-minded rednecks and beer-drinking trailer-trash that "go mudding" on a daily basis.
  • People who actually
  • *want to learn* are the minority, as the majority are idiot frat boys and ditzy sorority girls.
  • The coursework is not challenging AT ALL, no matter what level course, or what major. Mathematics is suppsedly the hardest major on campus, yet it is not rigorous one bit compared to a decent univ. It is more as if one loses intelligence by attending class.
  • Some professors are nice, and are willing to talk anytime. However, they aren't the smartest of people, and a bright student could easily find himself/herself questioning their methods.
  • Conway is the most ugly and boring town on the face of the earth! All you hear is people talking about WAL-MART; it is a very sad experience.
  • UCA Police Dept is dedicated to making lives of every student miserable. They seriously have nothing better to do than to hand out tickets ALL DAY LONG! Unless, of course, you are a big-boobed sorority girl, in which case you'd only be given a warning.
  • Most people are very closed-minded and christian extremists. This is not a liberal school at all.
  • I think the best thing about this school is probably the girls. Although most are not bright, they are indeed gorgeous. If you don't care about ever engaging in an intelligent conversation with them, then I suppose this is UCA's one positive point (for guys, mostly).
  • Bottom line: Don't go here unless you really really have no other choice (i.e. held at gunpoint, etc).

    Side note: Don't think doing well in class can guarantee grad school opportunities. I've done extremely well in all my courses, and have had professors write me excellent reccomendations for grad schools like UC-Berkeley, Princeton, Columbia, NYU, etc. HOWEVER, because of UCA's crappy reputation, my chances of admission into these universities are highly at risk. Beware!
