University of Arkansas at Little Rock Reviews

22 reviews
I have had a difficult time of graduate school, due to several medical problems, but my professors and classmates have been beyond helpful and supportive. I've had a number of opportunities to gain experience in different labs and pieces of equipment. I've gotten to participate in a number of conferences, including international, and edit or review in numerous journals. I've also gotten the opportunity to mentor many undergraduate students, be in several outreach programs, and develop my teaching portfolio through instructing a variety of different classes and labs. Through all these experiences, I feel that I have gained enough experience to make myself competitive in the job market even though I won't be coming from an expensive ivy league school. The campus is safe with affordable housing nearby, and it is close to stores and restaurants.

There was a variety of different courses available, for people focusing on animals, plants, or cells. There were also special topics courses available that are handled similarly to journal clubs that allow you to pursue studies that you're personally interested in. There are many extracurricular activities available in academics, athletics, and social organizations. There are various workshops presented to provide additional learning such as in thesis and grant writing, as well as tutoring programs and writing assistance. The library is large and well stocked with multiple studying rooms, and it also contains a well provisioned computer lab.
All the professors in my program were great! They were helpful, knowledgeable, and and strict enough that you don’t skate by without learning something.
