Academically, UALR is highly (some might say "too") underrated. The return on investment far outweighs any of the larger/more prominent state schools. It's nestled in the heart of central Arkansas, minutes from the downtown area. The professors are amazing and engaging too! We are not really a party school per se, nevertheless, Greek life does have a small presence on campus. Many local and national firms hire out of UALR too. As a business major, the College of Business has made it their goal to help me and all other students secure a job once graduated (an internship in the meantime). Being a part of the economic hub that is Little Rock, the opportunities to succeed are plenty - and being at UALR is extremely beneficial.
Review Your College
When I first attended the University of Arkansas at Little rock I enjoyed it! Later as the semester went on, so did my experience. Most of my professors were very nice but I had one that was very rude. My experience with dorms was horrible, I did not like it at all! Also UALR had began to charge me for everything. I was charged for 3 parking tickets and I did not have a car neither did I have a parking permit. My experience was not so nice.
This year will be my second year and I am so ready to go back ! I met many new people whether they were in my classes, dormitory, or just walking on campus . My first year I finished all my basics and now I'm just taking classes for the program I would like to get in to. Which is Speech-Language Pathology and hopefully next year I could get admitted. I chose this school because it wasn't far away from home and I heard good things about it . Although we don' have a football team but all the other sports . People still make it worthwhile. Especially at the basketball games . On game days they give out free T-Shirts. As well as free food at the games if you are a student . College is really what you make of it .As long as you are involved then you would never be bored . But education does come first . I cannot wait for my Sophomore year! I am a proud Trojan!
