Arkansas State University has polled 415 Arkansans and asked them to grade state schools, colleges and universities. Some interesting results.
Generally speaking, respondents gave public schools a C and colleges and universities almost a B, down a bit on colleges from the year before. UCA leads the way in grading of individual colleges -- including ASU, UALR, UAF. This could be related in some measure to the fact that UCA's advertising theme was the most recognized among the four schools.
