I'm a sophomore here at the great University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff! Coming all the way from Detroit Michigan, my love for UAPB is genuine. I am proud to be apart of this University's marching band, The Marching Musical Machine of the Mid-South. I am a nursing major and in 2020 I will graduate with my Bachelors degree and I will become a Registered Nurse in Pediatrics. This University constantly motivates me to become great at what I do, and to strive for the best. I am honored to be a student here at UAPB!
Review University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff
My experience at UAPB has been amazing. Starting out, it was kind of hard adapting to college life but it was still enjoyable and I was able to earn all A's and B's and a 3.67 GPA. I like that the teachers, students and administration on campus are all exceptionally friendly, helpful and treat one another like a family. I also like that there are tons of clubs and organizations to get involved in and the campus' school spirit is untouchable. Everyone is extremely supportive of one another's ideas and goals and work as a team to make sure the campus is safe, clean, and fun and academically at the top of the charts. There are ample opportunities for scholarships, internships, jobs, travelling and simply finding a place to fit in. If I could change anything it would be a more modern campus, nicer dorms and for administration to do a better job at letting students know about campus events, deadlines and other important information because we find everything out at the last minute.
My Experience
This university is a wonderful place to further education. Never have I experienced a more intelligent field of study. Academics and athletics are from a variety of foreign professors who enjoy teaching and have a sensitive style of maturity. Dorms are well groomed and entertainment occurs on campus weekly, including party scenes. As far as safety goes, qualified police/security officers make sure the campus is protected from any disaster. The local area of the campus is located by a freeway which gives access to others coming from a different city than and enables students in Pine Bluff to have good distance between home and school for learning purposes. Food here is amazing because there are ten categories to choose from in the cafeteria that are fresh and healthy to eat. Students feel appreciated by the investments they receive after all of their hard work is done. So far this is my experience.
