University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff Reviews
An unnecessarily frustrating school. Due to everything being disorganized in the admin department, class selection and the chances of landing a competent professor usually err on the low side. Not to mention how unfriendly this school is towards those with disabilities. Even for an HBCU, this school is severely underfunded, and this makes for a rather cumbersome experience for those who were expecting great things from a highly ranked HBCU. My experience here was for the majority an annoyance and constant stress, although I have also made great friends and had some valuable experiences. A plus side would perhaps be the uniqueness of the student body and the close knit campus; however these things are overshadowed by how overcomplicated and arduous things are be at this university.
I am from Atlanta, Georgia so coming to Pine Bluff, Arkansas was defiantly a shock. But it was very pleasurable and still is. It is more of a slow paced environment, which I have come to love becuase I am able to foucs more on on me and my growth with the school. The school it isself, I love attending the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff. I love my professors and the people you met. The criminal justice program is amazing! Financial aid is still some what slow as far as getting with students and helping them understand. But the school has made huge strides in online managment of the students courses and degree layouts and plans. The school still has a lot of growing to do. But it is an amazing school that I am proud of attending!
At the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff, they have a family like atmosphere. The professors are wonderful when it comes to helping students really understand the material and the students are always helping each other. The parties are great! The school is small so you don’t have to do too much walking. It is overall a great place to be!
