Join us at a metropolitan university on the move, a dynamic learning institution where students find unique learning opportunities provided through UALR’s one-of-a-kind connections to the state’s capital city and largest region.
UALR is a diverse intellectual community. There are traditional students straight from high school, some who live on campus. There are nontraditional students whose life experiences have led them back to school. At UALR you are likely to be in classes with people from different age groups, ethnic groups, economic groups, religious groups, and interest groups. It makes life here – not to mention classroom discussions – so much more interesting.
UALR’s campus is the center of student activity, a strong hub with spokes into the community. The truth is there’s lots going on here, and students are engaged in their lives as well as the life of the community. They are involved in government and fine arts, mentoring and fraternities, honors programs and tutoring, student government and undergraduate research. The 12,000 full- and part-time students here have too many options to name them all.
At UALR you feel welcome. When you walk across campus you can stop and talk to students and faculty – not just about academics, but about their lives. Once you know what is going on, UALR keeps you connected. It is growing, fun, and people friendly. Many of our students could go anywhere, but they tell us the smartest decision of their academic career was choosing UALR.
