University of Central Arkansas Reviews

30 reviews
I love my alma matter, you would probably catch me at every home football game and most events held on campus for students. I started UCA in 2006 and was ready to conquer the world. Freshman year participated in my first ever pageant to joining a Christian based organization, Students of the Propagation of Black Culture, plus many more. Sophomore year I got involved with more SO's and became a board member of one and also placed in my second pageant that year. Junior year I pledged and became a life time member of Delta Sigma Theta. I also decided to change my major from Education to Family and Consumer Science at the time because I got to a point where I felt like I wanted to do something differed. Senior year came and went but I graduated with my BS that Fall Dec. 2010. I'm; grateful for the professors, coaches and people that help paved the way; I still to continue to speak and carry a relationship with to this very day. My name was placed in the amphitheater, go look!

I can't remember every detail learned in my curriculum, but I do remember every professor or staff member that I gained a relationship with or met at my time there was nothing but helpful. I mean resources unlimited! Great culture and learning experience. I'm sure the resources and staff is even more extreme since all the development and building in the past 10 years.
Great online program! Though I lived hours from campus, I felt so connected to my professors and other students.
