Bridging Educational and Athletic Resources for Success (BEARS)

In BEARS@Bear, UCA student-athletes from all programs have an opportunity to live and learn together in an environment that promotes a healthy, balanced lifestyle.

The programming for BEARS@Bear is designed to work around the practice and training schedules, so that student-athletes can take full advantage of the resources to help them explore their interests, develop study skills, learn time management, and develop personally as students and athletes. You can find room dimensions and take a virtual tour of Bear Hall here.
