4 College Junior

Nightlife: i dont go out much but when i do i chose downtown little rock. i enjoy the variety in the night life and i also enjoy exploreing the city which the college is in

1 College Sophomore

Nightlife: I don't party, but I see plenty of partiers on campus. It doesn't look like they ever leave to go to bars or anything. They all get their alcohol and bring it on campus!

3 College Junior

Nightlife: If someone was to go out every weekend, they would probably get bored with it.

3 College Junior

Nightlife: There's usually always something you can find to do on the weekends.

College Junior

Nightlife: Im married with a 4 year old, so my best nightlife is sitting at home on the couch with my family watching Disney movie :) Nothing better than that!

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

The nightlife for UALR students is not really abundant as far as clubbing and hardcore partying is concerned. Many students like to get together at a restaurant, while others just enjoy a night hanging out together. If you come to UALR, don’t expect a huge party scene but that doesn’t mean one does not exist at all. There are clubs that cater to students who are 18 and older, but there are also places that meet the needs of more mature and sophisticated students. And if you know the right people, underground parties are also available.

A big part of student nightlife at UALAR revolves around parties sponsored by the Greek organizations. Many of the fraternities and sororities throw parties, especially around Halloween or spring break. And even though the parties aren't regular occurrences, when they do happen, they are big. Overall, while the nightlife here is not as crazy as it may be at other schools, nightlife options are there for students who seek it out.
