Our party scene has gotten so much better, and there’s pretty much always something to do on the weekends (just look to the athletic teams). Campus is actually really beautiful and has the feeling of home. Food in the cafe is pretty average except for brunch on the weekends, and sub connections in the EIT building. The surrounding area is pretty lame when it come to night life, but downtown give many opportunities for pictures! Over all it’s a great school!

Great to school if you're ready to learn.
Also the campus is close to many recreational things such as the park, or trail, or soccer field.
EVEN The mall and the grocery store nothing is too far away. The faculty and staff is really caring and want to make sure you understand any and everything dealing with the school. They make sure you take advantage of all the FREE resources provided on campus. WHO DOESN'T LIKE FREE THINGS?!

Its is VERY convenient campus is basically in the middle of Arkansas that if you like to travel to different colleges in Arkansas.
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.
