PINE BLUFF, Ark. – The University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff (UAPB) Office of Recruitment will host its annual Lion Fever Day Friday, March 6, 2015 from 9 a.m. to 1:45 p.m. Nearly 500 students representing 35 school districts will attend along with 3 community service groups, and community college students.
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 Greek organizations.
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 Chris Robinson, director of Recruitment. “We want students to have an opportunity to come to our campus to see for themselves what [UAPB] has to offer.”
