CONWAY, Ark. (KTHV) - The recent icy conditions have made travel plans a nightmare for college students all over the state.
For the first time since the year 2000, icy conditions have forced the University of Central Arkansas to reschedule finals creating a major change in plans for students and faculty.
"It's more stress I think because now tomorrow morning I have a final, like three back to back," said Lacy Patterson, a sophomore from Alma.
"We are starting finals at 7 in the morning and going until 9:30 at night," said Dr. Steven Runge, Vice President of Academic Affairs."We had reports from state police of a high percentage of the highways still had poor road conditions and in our estimation the students were much more likely to take a risk to try to get here for final exams compared to during a normal week."
But now getting home has become the problem for some according to student Alex Deason from Houston.
