hey guys.  i think this is a good idea!  my name is kandi.  i graduated from duke university this past may with a BA in Public Policy and a Certificate in Health Policy. I will be attending the part-time program and depending on how i feel in may, transfer into the full time program. 

i'm orginally from little rock but my family moved to DC my freshmen year so i'm excited as all hell to get back home to see family and friends. i'm a member of alpha kappa alpha sorority and hope to be as actively involved in arkansas as i was at duke.  in terms of living arrangements, i'm hoping to stay in a townhome in west little rock.  i'm going down in july to solidify some things and buy furniture.  i don't plan on having a roommate..as i've lived on my own for the past 3 years (well, me and my pekingese brooklynn). 

i love life and am enjoying my summer doing absolutely nothing...no work, all play (and going to the gym).  the one thing i'll miss about living in DC is the nightlife..it's absolutely crazy here.  however, i've heard little rock is the new DC so we'll see 'eh (catch the sarcasm)!  :)  take care guys!

p.s.--amy, the riverdale area is pretty nice.  depending on your budget, however, you can find cheaper places with more square footage.  you are definitely paying for the location in that area.

hey guys.  my name is kandi and i'll be attending ualr in the part-time night division.  i'm originally from little rock but went to duke for undergrad.  my family has seen moved to Maryland and i've only been back to little rock a few times in the last several years.  however, i do know the areas pretty well and hopefully, will be able to give some apt. hunting tips.  the best areas to live in are west little rock (midtown), downtown by the rivermarket, on cantrell rd or in north little rock close to jfk and mccain blvd's.  little rock is not a huge city, so even if you lived in nlr, the commute is about 15 (i had to drive it everyday in high school as i lived in little rock but attended school in nlr).  west little rock is a VERY nice area close to the city's interstates, etc.  the rivermarket has been completely revamped (due to the clinton library) and have pretty nice lofts down there.  cantrell rd is a part of west lr, however, they are a bit further out and tend to be a little less expensive.  north little rock has the cheapest rates, but again, you have to consider the commute.  id suggest going to apartmentguide.com and request a hard copy of the apartment guide.  when you get it, just call the apartment complexes and request a brochure and an application.  they have pretty quick turnarounds.  i hope this helps and if anyone has any other questions about the city in general, pls feel free to email me.  can't wait to meet you all!
