There must be a way. But, when using a collegiate font with a word that has 4 letters or less, you can't use the arc tool without distorting the type. You can't manually set the letters because the serifs are clunky. So far, I haven't seen ONE example or tutorial that addresses this situation. I also haven't seen a plug-in which helps. FilterIt comes close, but it only "arches" the type, not "arc" it.

brewcitywi, As I (mis)understand it, I am afraid the long answer is careful manual work. This thread is about a (dis)simimilar request, pointing back to a distant past: https://community.adobe.com/t5/illustrator-discussions/how-can-i-keep-top-third-of-text-untouched-while-curving-bottom-half/td-p/12186490

Brewcity, Hi.

 

As Mylenium mentioned, at this point you have not given us what you are expecting. Maybe attaced an inspiration image of what you want.

 

Maybe something like this???

I used Type on a Path.

Show in Red is the path I used. Type is centered aligned.

Then Type>Type on Path>Path Options.
