Am enjoying being here
UAPB is in a small town but, if you are involved in campus activities there is plenty to do.
Bang for the buck
UAPB offer plenty of scholarships
Tips for prospective students
1. Make sure you take care of your financial aid as quickly as possible. The longer you wait the longer the lines in the Financial Aid building will be.

2. Get involved in as many activities on campus as possible.
Great for these types of students

Am learning a lot
The classes are not just teaching the subject. The professors are also teaching life lessons that will help after graduation.

In three sentences
if you make good friends and get active, you will have some of the best memories here!!!
Academic Rigor
if the school wasn't an open door policy, the academic will be a lot better than great. the professors teach more than the subject. they teach it with life lessons that you will or have faced.
Dorm Life
sometimes dorm life is a pain but it is also a great way to make plenty of friends!!!
Food and Dining
sometimes the cafe will serve some um inedible food but other times you will go back for seconds and thirds.
What to do for fun
as far as the city of pine bluff, there is not much to do here. if you do want to go shopping or anything, people majority of the time go to my hometown, little rock.
Clubs and Activities
choose a club or activity that fits you. don't join in everything!
Greek Life
depending on the greek organization, some frats and sororities are very serious about their greek letters. if you do want to pledge, follow this rule. do not brag about what you want to pledge!! don't tell anyone!!! let the greek organization come to you.
Campus Safety
safety here on campus is great. the only problems you here about pine bluff are off campus.

The University of Arkansas @ Pine Bluff (UAPB) deserves a high grade of 8 out of 10 on its smooth admissions procedures for students. It deserves an 8 for its research provisions @ the library for students. It deserves an 8 on how it allows the student government to be effective in the entire scheme of promoting and implementing ideas for us.
Tips for prospective students
You want to make early requests for services you need, like preferred roommates or extra space, because many students have made contact for a long time as they wait anxiously to get in UAPB. Also, request a calendar and pay attention to important dates for Orientations and workshops for new students. Recruiters @UAPB go the whole mile and some more- so I'll give them an 8 for their tips also to interested students.
Academic Rigor
I find that you get what you put into each class. Teachers @UAPB will help you through your work, but they do not do it for you. They encourage you to do it, persistently. Classes require a lot of reading, memorizing, and a lot of written interpretation. Tests come about real often. In some of my classes, students are expected to know and do (research) above and beyond on that unit, but there is often a bonus for this extra mile. Programs such as, The McNairs Scholars Program gives UAPB's academic platform a big boost. Students receive direction, guidance and stiff but meaningful assignments that are academically challenging to them. I'll give the system a big ole' 8.
Dorm Life
Comfortable, safe, new and exciting are words that describe my dorm experiences @UAPB, so far. Although we share many items, it is still wise to leave no one in your room without being there yourself. We are on a smoke- free university campus, so some problems (mainly like careless fires) are unlikely to happen. Our dorms have computer rooms and lounges. These are the real escort for us students who are seriously pursuing an education. These services along with kitchen facilities put a smile on our faces each time we get home (to the dorm, I mean). I'll give our dorms a great 8!
Food and Dining
It is a subjective view, but I have to give you what you ask for, here. Our Southern Cooks provide an array of delicious foods in or mess hall everyday. We have snack bars for sandwich-type dining available on campus, and variety food and drink machines in handy locations . I'd have to give our food and dining facilities another 8.
What to do for fun
Students can enjoy game rooms, speciality dances, plain ole' sock hops, talent shows, fashion shows, Greek participation or observation (whichever), all kinds of sports like tennis, and etc., youth ministry involvement/fun, contests in specific areas, fitness activities... lots of fun going on around here @ UAPB. Fun gets an 8 on my rating scale.
Bang for the buck
The biggest truth I could tell you is that while UAPB is predominately Black, so am I, and I love it that way. The social life aspect expressed by many students is that they enjoy knowing so many of the same ethnic people as they are, who are about something really good, really serious, really aspiring. In other words, it is great to be around people who are not absent - mindedly running their lives with foolish interests and non-productive lifestyles and hustles. It just makes us proud.
Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus
Whereas, many schools have abandoned the idea of giving thanks to a higher image than ourselves, UAPB assemblies and gatherings traditionally begin with giving thanks and expressing thanks for what already is. We have a fishery department. the aquatic exhibit there is phenomenal.
Great for these types of students
The biology department is equipped with master minds who have provided an excellent foundation for many graduates that have become health professionals: nurses, doctors, dentists, and so forth. Students interested in the sciences will appreciate this institution. There is a rich heritage of teachers from our school. The education Department is a great place for those who want to go into that field.
Students wanting contemporary skills can appreciate our Home Economics/ Child Care/ Life Skills Areas. There are more to apply, but little freedom to do so in this brief assignment/ writing today.
Clubs and Activities
Tops! UAPB offers a whole smorgasbord of clubs and activities. The list would be nearly infinite. The sweet inspirations of purpose and resolve, however, allows the students multi challenges and opportunities of participation. I feel that it is more important to address that, rather than to name the affiliations and activities. Yes, the many clubs and activities allow students an independence that is most valuable. An independence to choose and to participate, an independence to identify with others on a college level, to compete on a college level, and to enjoy as college student in a safe and supervised setting.
Greek Life
UAPB has it- Greek life! It is diversified and exciting. Greek life is the nucleus for many smart and interested students who work hard and join these organizations. For us observers, it is it is an emotional charge to see the Greeks perform, and to attend their activities.
Campus Safety
This is an important facet. We have excellent security. These safe guards are in the forms of the presence of security, at all times on and around campus, excellent telephone and emergency tactics and systems in place, and the watchful eyes of designated personnel in our dorms and other buildings.

Tips for prospective students
The only tips I can give is go to class, get to know your professors,do your work, and have fun but dont forget why your there
Academic Rigor
One word GREAT!
Dorm Life
Dorm life is great. This helps you meet great new people! All dorms have security for your safety. The only reason I didnt give this 5 stars is because the dorm coordinators can be a bit unreasonable at times
Food and Dining
The food at UAPB is not only healthy for you but it also tastes great! It may not look as tasty but give it a try im sure you'll love it.
What to do for fun
For fun you can sit around the bell tower, which is located directly in the center of the campus, hang out in the union, the student lounge where you will see many of your friends or even fellow classmates, or if your Greek you can hang out at your Greek's house.
Greek Life
I've heard the Greek life is amazing but, I wouldnt know bc I'm not Greek.
Campus Safety
Campus police are patrolling 24/7. If they see unusual things going on or even unusual cars passing through they will check the scene, not to be a pest but for our own safety.
