Junior and senior high school students from around the state will visit the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff for Lion Fever Day from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. April 13.

Sponsored by the Office of Recruitment, the event will be held in various locations on campus.

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 advisers personally in an effort to gain details about his/her desired area of major. Activities will include a college fair, campus tour, a chance to hear the Marching Band and view performances from select student 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 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.”
