Student Ratings

Overall Rating

The best thing about UAPB is that the classes are small, up close, and personal. You definitely will learn, if intended. The college life is a plentiful, family oriented type atmosphere. You will get so tired of the close-knit family that you will be heavily focused to get out and work in your field once you get in and settle down. The most memorable experiences are Greek Life, Parties, Dorm Life, teacher-student relationships, and the fact that it is an HBCU. If you want to learn yourself, live a little, and appreciate the little things at a very affordable cost UAPB is the place to be.
