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!
My experience at the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff is amazing! I love how it's campus friendly, family oriented, and how everyone on motivates each other to succeed. In the future I would like to see more diversity on campus, and I would like our graduation rate to go up. We are a good school, we have good students, but some of them do not have the drive to graduate. So, in the future I hope to see the graduate rate grow tremendously.
