Ouachita Baptist University is an amazing university for both Christians and non-Christians! For both there is equal opportunity for growth and an amazing education. However, if you are a Christian (I pray you are) it is a marvelous place to flourish!!!!

My 4 years at OBU were some of the best times of my life. The people are the highest caliber you can find, and the academic, social, and Spiritual growth I had cannot be paralleled with another experience. It is a beautiful, laid back, fun atmosphere where everyone knows everyone.
