PINE BLUFF, Ark. – The University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff (UAPB) Office of Recruitment will host its annual Lion Fever Day Friday, April 12, 2013 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Junior and senior high school students from around the state and surrounding states are encouraged to visit UAPB for Lion Fever Day. Registration will begin at 8:00 a.m. at the Kenneth L. Johnson, Sr. HPER Complex.
Lion Fever Day is designed to allow seniors and juniors an opportunity to see various parts of UAPB’s campus and experience speaking with collegiate advisors personally in an effort to gain details about his/her desired area or major. Activities will include a college fair, campus tour, a chance to hear the Marching Band and view performances from select student and Greek organizations. Students attending will also enjoy lunch courtesy of UAPB Donors.
The college fair will give potential students an opportunity to speak with every department on campus from aquaculture/fisheries to residential life, answer questions they might have and leave with a better understanding of UAPB. The campus tour will give attendees information about the buildings where classes take place and learn about the institutions’ rich heritage at feature locations such as the UAPB Museum and Cultural Center.
“Lion Fever Day is a tradition which dates back 20 or more years,” said Lee Hardman, Director of Recruitment. “We want students to have an opportunity to come to our campus to see for themselves what [UAPB] has to offer in the realm of education. We encourage all schools in Arkansas and surrounding states to participate in Lion Fever Day.”
