University of Arkansas at Little Rock Top Questions

What is the stereotype of students at your school? Is this stereotype accurate?

1)The stereotypes are that students are either young underachievers or substandard performers. 2) Students are really Old and lack diversity The school is full of really intelligent students and has students and faculty that compete with leaders in their fields on a national and international level. The school is challenging, but gives students a highly respected degree upon completion of undergraduate curriculum, and the school is nearly unrivaled in the mixture of international students and outstanding minority advocacy programs to ensure retention and graduation among underrepresented groups.

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. Another stereotype is that we in an area where we are subject to criminal acts. That is also not true. Sure, every institution has had problems with crimes, but I feel safe here at UALR. The police work around the clock to patrol our campus to insure that the students and faculty are safe. UALR has safety buttons all around campus that directly connect anyone to the police in an emergency and UALR security walks people to their dorm room or car.

The University of Arkansas at Little Rock (UALR) has become known as the local metro university. Although diversity is present on campus, the majority of students range in lower socioeconomic backgrounds and tend to enroll in fundamental courses during their freshman year. Prior to 2000, UALR's campus was saturated with students with high g.p.a's from two-parent families.

There's not much of an answer to give. This is a commuter campus, and there isn't much campus life to be spoken of here.

If there is a stereotype of students at my university, I don't notice it. Everyone interacts flawlessly and there is little line drawn between groups. I consider myself an art nerd, but I have close friends who are in sororities, fraternities and sports teams. There are many clubs in our school that break the barriers between groups of students. The International Club, for example, encourage communication and friendship between local and international students. My university is located at the capital city and we get a diverse of people with a variety of interest. It's hard to come up with a stereotype because even as an art nerd, I'm also a leader at our campus (student body government pr), international club officer, donaghey scholar, and many more - so it's hard to put one person in one stereotype because most students here have a variety of interest that they are part of.
