    Ouachita gives a LOT of scholarship money out and once you are at school, there are more chances for scholarships. In my case, I would be paying more money to be going to UofA, and you can't beat the small school atmosphere

    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.

    OBU is a private university, but I feel this is where God has led me and He has provided mightily while I have been here. The one-on-one relationship I share with my professors is worth the financial investment my parents and I have decided to make in my future.
