  • Serene shaded paved paths weave through nature, sculptures, and buildings on campus—and, of course, you’ve got to see the fountain.
  • I have been in the graduate program at UALR, since the fall of 2017. I cannot recall any issues that I have had with staff, classes, registration, or financial aid. My professors are always available for me when I have needed them and they respond to me in a timely manner when I reach out to them. I am in an online program and it has been a rewarding experience thus far. If I were going to say anything negative about UALR, it would be about the pricey books that I have purchased in the bookstore. But, I cannot even say that, considering what I have spent on books in undergrad in Texas.
