Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

There is plenty of diversity at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock—the students  here come from nearly every imaginable background. From adult returning students to those who are coming to school for the first time, UALR's students are proud of who they represent, and no one is pressured to be someone or something they're not. You will see people all over campus who look different than you, whether they are from a different ethnicity or have a different personal style.

Most students here embrace their personal differences. College is about finding yourself, and it’s easy to be yourself here. For example, if a student expresses himself by wearing long coats, he is allowed to do just that. Overall, the diversity of the students here comes in many different forms, and everyone contributes to the student diversity of campus in some way.
