The next Discover UALR day is set for Friday, Oct. 24, providing the perfect opportunity for high school students as well as prospective transfer students and their parents or guardians to preview all that UALR offers and even earn a scholarship in the process.
The event begins at 9 a.m. at the Jack Stephens Center on the UALR campus and concludes around 2 p.m.
Interested students may register at ualr.edu/admissions/discover.
Discover UALR includes campus tours and a chance to speak with representatives across many student services departments and academic disciplines.
High school seniors who complete an application at Discover UALR will have their application fee waived, and a photo contest that could result in as much as a $1,000 scholarship provides an additional incentive for attending.
To be eligible for scholarship consideration, Discover UALR participants are encouraged to snap pictures as they tour campus and post to Instagram using the #discoverUALR hashtag before 2:30 p.m.
A panel will review all submissions, and a winner will be chosen in each of six different categories by 4 p.m. Winners do not have to be present to win.
Last year, several compelling pics turned into university scholarships for the winners, who were chosen from among more than 600 submissions. Visit this link for more information about the photo competition.
