This year will be my second year and I am so ready to go back ! I met many new people whether they were in my classes, dormitory, or just walking on campus . My first year I finished all my basics and now I'm just taking classes for the program I would like to get in to. Which is Speech-Language Pathology and hopefully next year I could get admitted. I chose this school because it wasn't far away from home and I heard good things about it . Although we don' have a football team but all the other sports . People still make it worthwhile. Especially at the basketball games . On game days they give out free T-Shirts. As well as free food at the games if you are a student . College is really what you make of it .As long as you are involved then you would never be bored . But education does come first . I cannot wait for my Sophomore year! I am a proud Trojan!

Pretty good, haven't had many problem so far, the only issue that I've seen so far is the fact that there aren't drains in dorm bathrooms when things have overflown the water has ended up in our rooms and that kind of disgusting and inconvenient. But other than that the housing janitors, RA's, and maintenance are excellent!

UALR is a great school! The professors and staff are great people and very helpful. They have built several new buildings in the past decade and have centralized student services. They offer many online classes and have several accredited programs for students.
