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.
