Why UA Little Rock?“I wanted the UA Little Rock experience because of the proximity to my place of employment; the courses were designed for practitioners so I was able to apply the concepts and information that I was learning in class in my role as an educator. The professors were also practitioners so they were able to teach from an informed perspective. I am where I am professionally because of my experience and education that I received from UA Little Rock.
UA Little Rock still plays an important role in my life. I participate in the alumni association activities as a life member and serve on the CHASSE Leadership Council. My son, Jaxon, has also participated in the emerging writers camp on the campus of UA Little Rock. My wife, Katrina, graduated from UA Little Rock and has served on the Alumni Association Board of Directors. We enjoy giving back to the UA Little Rock community because it has given so much to my family.
Education is important to me. I tell my son and my students that education is a gift that no one can ever take away from you, so it is important that you take ownership of your educational experience and ensure that you receive as much knowledge and information as possible.”
Affordable and relevant, a great metropolitan university is critical to the infrastructure of a vibrant city. It also requires a strong alumni association that’s engaged in civic and business leadership throughout the Capital City. UA Little Rock boasts both – with a shared vision for the future. As UA Little Rock celebrates the success of its alumni, the university and alumni reflect on the role the institution plays in the continued economic development of Central Arkansas and the wealth of knowledge is offer current students.
