I attended the University of Arkansas at Little Rock as a student-athlete. I loved my time as an athlete. The athletic directors and coaches definitely cared about the student experience and held high expectations for learning before athletics. However, the facilities at the school were not the greatest. They are revamping a lot of the campus, though, and many areas are much nicer than when I first began attending here. The class sizes are great with a small professor-student ratio, most professors are willing to work with you and get to know you personally. The location of the school is in a more dangerous part of the city. I also always wished the amenities were better, like more student discounts and better restaurants on campus. We had a knock-off Starbucks until my junior year, and when they finally built that, they got rid of all the coffee and snack stands on campus except for one on the far side. And the convenience store on campus literally only sells junk food, cheese, and milk. Good luck finding an apple that isn't weeks old.
Regardless, the education was fair and I made many friends. Little Rock itself isn't too bad, either (as long as you know the right places to go)!
University of Arkansas at Little Rock is a great school for someone who isn't too concerned with the social scene, but would rather focus on their schooling. While there are plenty of organizations to join to be social, UALR is a smaller school. There is a very large "home" feel about the school and even if you don't know the people next to you, you feel like you are a part of a close knit campus.
I love UALR! I transferred here from UCA. I had a bad experience there and transferring to UALR has completely changed my college experience. I have not had a problem with a single professor. The class sizes are great and I joined greek life this year.
Overall UALR is a great school. I wish I had enrolled at this universityI am yet to have a professor who felt that they were too busy or too important to talk to me.

College is about learning, about friends, about community, and about making a difference. I gained all of this from my experience in college. My learning experience went above and beyond anything I had ever expected. It went above and beyond what I thought I was capable of. I will never forget my experience at this university and how it has helped me throughout my life and career.
The worst part about my school there is not a lot of school activites that don't focus on greek life.
Very friendly and wanting to learn everything they can.
The best thing about my school is the professors. The professors are willing to help you if you ask to get a better understanding on the subject.
How expensive college would be over the years. The amount of debt I'm having to rack up in student loans is scary. Also how much time and effort is needed to study for each class.
The University of Arkansas at Little Rock is very convienant for working students, parents, and those who are going back to college after a sufficient amount of time. During my undergraduate years Dr. Karen Kuralt was a great mentor advisor and professor. I would highly recommend UALR for anyone in the Little Rock or surrounding areas. The Faculty and Staff are always willing to lend a helping hand and I appreciate that so greatly.
The University of Arkansas at Little Rock is best known for it's accredited College of Engineering and Information Technology. The college is highly valued by workers across the United States. Hirers of engineering and technology jobs seek graduate students of the university for their expertise.
UALR is unique compared to other schools because there is a high population of non-traditional students. I felt right at home at the university because of the teacher to student ratio, wonderful instructors, and helpful staff/faculty.
There is no type of person who should not attend this school. It's a very flexible school with a wide range of plans of study. UALR is the perfect choice for someone who is hardworking, independent, and wants a good education. It is never too late to get an education.
This college made a difference in my life. It made me buckle down and work for, not just knowledge, but a career. I left this University and felt prepared to face the challenges of my field. I felt that I could make a difference, and I believe that I did. I wouldn't be standing where I am today if it wasn't for UALR.
Students wanting a higher educations, all age groups attend.
Academically, I think its among the best. I'm a political science major, and I believe that we have some very impressive undergraduate professors of political science.
I love it here. I love the people. I think if I had went anywhere else in Central Arkansas, I wouldn't be as involved with the campus as I am here.
Greek and alumni
The biggest stereotype accompanies UALR is that most of us are over the age of 25, married, and have children. Our school is viewed as having only a few traditional students that attend. That is NOT true. At UALR, there is a big diversity between race and age groups. In fact as a freshman that transferred straight from high school to college, I have seen an overwhelming amount of students that are in my age group 18-20. In all my classes, there have been maybe 2 people over 25 and non over 60. Even though our institution supports the continuing education of non-traditional students by the Adult Student Advocacy, we are composed of mostly students coming straight out of high school seeking to further their education.
transfers who partied themselves out of other schools, elderly who go to school free because the state pays for it, commuter college only, so their is no social scene
The Greek Scene is very divided and has far too little collaboration, but they are the biggest force on campus when it comes to African American students. Predominantly white Greek life is more cohesive and less combative.
Lots of homework, hanging out with my friends, and socializing. It is great to take a break once in a while.
I don't ever really see a negative social scene on campus. Many students are really sociable. Now that we have the new cafeteria set-up, there are so many students around. You can sit at any table and make new friends every day. This is the best part of the social scene. Plus, there is always something to do.
When you get to UALR you have to do a little research, but once you do that research, you will find that there are events virtually every day of the week. :)
