Dear UALR,

The last five years have been great. You were my safety school, but I’m so glad that I chose to get my degree here. For the last five years UALR and the people working here have shaped me into the person that I am today.

UALR became my home when I didn’t know where else to go. For five years I have lived here. For four years I have worked here. I couldn’t have asked for a better school. 

It’s really sad, leaving the place that you feel comfortable. But that’s the thing about growing up, you have to leave your comfort zone even if you don’t want to.

So UALR, thank you.

Thank you for preparing me for my future.

Thank you for being my home for so long.

See ya later UALR,


Freshman Year!

Graduation Day!
