THE FULL COLLEGE EXPERIENCE


 
 

GO HERE. GO ANYWHERE. 

The University of Central Arkansas offers academic excellence, an energetic college town, NCAA Division I athletics, Greek life, campus life and so much more. UCA has just what you’re looking for, plus things you don’t even know you want yet. It’s everything you need to prepare for success. When you go here, you can go anywhere.


GO ALL OUT.

DISCOVER OPPORTUNITIES FOR LEADERSHIP, CREATIVE EXPRESSION, VOLUNTEERISM OR JUST A GOOD GAME OF ULTIMATE FRISBEE.

When you come to UCA, you have the chance to be a part of something. Actually, you have the chance to be a part of a lot of things! We have so many opportunities to pursue your passions and develop your strengths, including student government, environmental projects, the Clarinet Alliance (yes, we have a Clarinet Alliance) and so much more.

AT OUR STATE-OF-THE-ART NEW HPER CENTER, STAYING ACTIVE DOESN’T REQUIRE MUCH EFFORT.

Our recently expanded Health Physical Education and Recreation (HPER) Center is like no fitness facility you’ve ever seen. Highlights include:

  • Six-lane, 25-yard lap pool
  • 10,000-square-foot weight room
  • Cardio room with treadmills, elliptical and rower machines
  • Three group-exercise studios
  • Numerous group-exercise classes, including spin, yoga and Zumba

Also located in the HPER Center is our Campus Outdoor Pursuits and Activities (COPA) where students can check out camping and sports gear for FREE.


 
 

GO GREEK.

For more than 100 years, our fraternities and sororities have been growing active communities dedicated to developing leadership, lifelong relationships and a whole lot of fun. Our latest addition is the first phase of Greek Village: five brand-new, on-campus, two-story sorority houses and a sorority community center for meetings and events — with more plans for future expansion. We offer 25 Greek chapters, including eight historically African- American Greek organizations and a new chapter of Phi Iota Alpha, the oldest Latino fraternity in existence and Sigma Iota Alpha, the second Latina sorority in the state.


GO HAVE A GOOD TIME.

UCA and Conway have plenty for you to see and do. Reynolds Performance Hall and our Student Activities Board attract shows like “Fame” and bring celebrated acts such as Blue Man Group, Ke$ha, Nick Cannon and “Annie” to campus every year. The Arkansas Shakespeare Theatre, the only professional Shakespeare company in the state, makes its home at UCA. Plus, when you go off campus, the excitement continues with great restaurants, live music, boutiques and local culture. You’re always near the action in central Arkansas.


GO BEARS!

WE WORK AT A HIGHER LEVEL. AND WE PLAY AT A HIGHER LEVEL.

Sports play a huge role in the UCA experience. The Bears are in the NCAA Division I Southland Conference. Our athletic programs draw athletes from around the country and the world to compete at the highest level in 18 NCAA Division I sports with eight men’s and ten women’s teams.

We don’t just compete. We win. UCA has more than 20 conference championships. In the past five years, UCA has seven Southland Conference championships in five sports and has made more than 10 NCAA postseason appearances in nine sports. And the tradition continues to the classroom where UCA athletes rank first in graduation rates in their conference. In fact, the UCA athletic program has been ranked number one in academics in the state and continues to produce top-ranking student athletes.


Go for it.
