@ucabears grad Jordan Howard is living out his basketball dreams having played with the Golden State Warriors for NBA summer league in 2018. In January, he signed with the @raptors905. In addition to his stellar skills on the court, Jordan graduated from UCA with a degree in filmmaking. “Of course, my first option was to play professional basketball,” he says. “But it’s helpful to be talented in other things and have other skills. Once I got to college, I knew filmmaking was what I wanted to pursue. One of my first questions when I was being recruited for basketball was if UCA had a filmmaking program.” #uca #ucabears #ucabasketball #jordanhoward #arkansasnext

Four-year colleges aren’t for everyone, but for Gary Merriweather and his career dreams, getting a bachelor’s degree was the only way to go. Once he graduates from UCA in 2019, Gary plans to apply to a graduate program in Arkansas where he can pursue a doctorate in physical therapy. A four-year degree is definitely worth it because it opens up so many doors and provides a lot more opportunities to excel.” #arkansasnext @ucabears #linkinbio
Worried about tuition and student loans? Jessica Honeycutt, a student at @southarkcc, recommends a transfer degree. “The best part is that it allowed me to figure out what I really wanted to do,” she says. “After I graduated high school, I wanted to be an art major. Taking my basic courses at @searkcollege quickly showed me that I wanted to do something involving business.” Find out more about transfer degrees at the link in our bio! #arkansasnext

Here’s what you can expect freshman year. // @arkansastech @ouachita @ucaadmissions @uofaadmissions
