    Ok... YES Ouachita IS EXPENSIVE, but I have to say that I believe it was worth EVERY PENNY! The people are unforgettable, and my overall experience was incredible. The education that I received was second to none, and I feel adequately prepared as I am about to pursue a graduate degree up north in the fall.
