The University has a large percentage of adult returning students, so the average age of a UALR student is 22 or older. There are still plenty of average-aged college students, but many of the older students don’t stick around on campus after class, especially if they have families or jobs. On average, the students say the social scene is rather quiet here, but there are a handful of popular activities offered.
The typical fashion style here is comfortable, especially because many students have long days. Who wants to be uncomfortable when you have four straight hours of classes with only 20 minutes to spare in between? However, this doesn’t mean you can’t dress up if you feel like it, and you will see some students who are dressed up a little more because they have to work after class. But, no matter if you want to dress up or down, there is a wide range of fashion styles on campus—everyone loves to express themselves through their clothes, and no one will really bat an eye (within reason).
