What can I say? Even though the University of Central Arkansas is a beacon of hope for the state, it's still located dead center in one of the most closedminded parts of the country.

In my time here I have learned some things that might be useful to an incoming student:

  • Everything still runs on the good ol' boy system. Just ask our President, Lu Hardin.
  • In the recent past, UCA has allowed fraternities to LITERALLY get away with murder.
  • There was a meth lab busted on campus.
  • White trash is still white trash even if you try to cover it up with Abercrombie clothing.
  • You can drive to anywhere in Conway within 7 minutes.
  • It's kinda funny. Some of these small town kids who have never had any experience living in a real city seem to feel that they have somehow become more cosmopolitan after moving to Conway.

    But I digress…

    People for the most part are friendly and polite despite the dumbass frat boys you have to deal with. The faculty are helpful and well-meaning, if not always competent. There have occaisionally been some exceptional professors but they usually leave or get fired for their non-conformist views and teaching styles.

    It's not all bad, but just don't expect too much from a university in a state whose governor lived in a trailer while in office.
