Thirty Black Students From Rwanda Coming to Arkansas

This month 30 black students from the war-torn African nation of Rwanda are coming to the University of Arkansas at Little Rock. The students, who plan on majoring in mathematics, engineering, computer science, or the natural sciences, will be immersed in the Intensive English Language Program on the Little Rock campus. This fall they will enroll at campuses in Arkansas and other southern states. Ten students will remain on the Little Rock campus, four will enroll at Hendrix College in Conway, four at Harding University in Searcy, and two will become students at Philander Smith College, the historically black educational institution in Little Rock. The remaining 10 students will enroll at out-of-state educational institutions.
