University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff Reviews
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.
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!
My experience at University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff was not what I expected it to be. There were students that came from all over. Some stayed put to the very end and some left. I wish I could have done something to assisted the ones that did not make it to the end. The things that I like about University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff was some of the instructors' pushed students to do their best. The instructors were my motivation. The instructors never turned down a student that needed their attention or aid. There was not much that I did not like at University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff, but one thing that stood out the most was the dorm rooms for the freshman. Some students did not get alone with other students. I had a good experience with University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff and their instructors, but their dorms should have been better.
