University of Arkansas at Little Rock is a great school. There's lots of diversity and the students and staff are very welcoming there. There are only a few things I would want them to consider changing. One the security, while I'm on campus I often feel very unsafe and uncertain whenever I walk alone. I feel like there should be more police patrolling and a number you could call to get a nearby officer to accompany you to your location. Another thing that can be fixed is their campus. The campus isn't very appealing, adding some gardens or some fountains would beautify the campus greatly. Although the University of Arkansas at Little Rock isn't perfect, I still think it's a great school!

My first-year experience at UALR was amazing! In the year of 2018-2019, I met many different amazing people, it's a welcoming campus along with students and staff. The food is great, the scenery is breathe taking, everything about this institution is just perfect! If I were to change anything about this campus, it would probably be transportation, because some classes are too far away from each other and it's hard not to be just on time.
I have really enjoyed the years I have spent at this university learning from my amazing professors. The school offers a great network to meet other professionals and get involved with the local community, yet I wish that students were more active on campus. I spent time leading several campus organizations, and student participation was difficult. Overall, I’m glad to have had the opportunity to study here!
