CONWAY, AR.- Numbers are out on college enrollement rates for the state of Arkansas and while many school have seen a decrease the University of Central Arkansas has seen an increase.
UCA's President Tom Courtway says this is the second year in a row they have seen a hike.
"As of today, we are at 11,700. So we went down, our head count declined for about three straight year but we started to go up last year," says Courtway.
The school has increased by 123 student for the 2014-2015 school year.
"We are at full compacity at our reisdents halls. We had to double and triple. Not triple but we had to put some students in some other rooms where they were going to be single rooms," says Courtway.
With that increase the school has been working on campus improvements and accommodations.
Some of those improvements include the new Greek Village, renovation on the science building, and an addition to the student recreation center.
