UAPB to host event for potential new students April 12


The University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff Office of Recruitment will host the annual Lion Fever Day where junior and senior high school students from Arkansas and other states will visit UAPB to learn more about the campus.

The event will be held from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. April 12. Registration begins at 8 a.m. at the Kenneth L. Johnson Sr. Health, Physical Education and Recreation Complex.

Lion Fever Day is designed to allow high school students an opportunity to see various parts of UAPB’s campus and experience speaking with collegiate advisers in an effort to gain details about their desired majors. Activities will include a college fair, campus tour, a chance to hear the marching band and view performances from student and Greek organizations. Participants will also receive lunch courtesy of UAPB Donors.

“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.”
