What Students Are Saying

4.06 Average Rating
Come visit!!! Ouachita is a beautiful campus, and the people are amazing. You need to get on campuses before you know if you want to go there! I knew right away when I got on campuses if I liked the school!
Go and visit a class and meet with some professors in your field of study. It helps you get a feel for what your time at college will be like!
Tiffani from The Colony, TX
For prospective students make sure that Ouachita is the right college for you. You may go in thinking a small campus is great, but later find out that it just isn't for you and that's okay! Overall just make sure that Ouachita fits all your college needs and also ask current students and see if they are glad that they chose Ouachita!
Brian from El Paso, TX
I would definitely recommend Ouachita. Also, wherever you go to college, get involved! There's so many clubs and volunteer opportunities, don't let them pass you by. You'll only get busier, so you might as well try things out as a freshman. Just don't get so busy your grades suffer!

Apply early, and if you are an Arkansas resident, please apply for the Arkansas Lottery Scholarship.
Taylor from Arkansas
The students and faculty at Ouachita are friendly, caring, and abundantly helpful. They want to make your experience wonderful so do not hesitate to ask questions or give them a call. If you are taking a walk on campus be prepared for LOTS of friendly smiles and people asking you if they can help you find something. This campus is truly ONE OF A KIND.
Victoria from Sherwood, AR
If you are new to OBU or any college, you should learn to meet new people and step out of your comfort zones. Use college, not only as an educational experience, but an opportunity to expand who you are while achieving who you want to be. Also, practice different learning techniques to see which one works for you.
Justin from Searcy, AR
Figure out what your priorities are in a school. Ouachita students should have studies a higher priority than fun.
Alexander from Little Rock, AR
Find a social group that can help you stay connected.
