I got out of my car today as I arrived on campus and felt just the slightest hint of cool in the air. The Bradford pear trees around campus have a subtle hint of red at their edges. It’s the last official day of summer! Tomorrow ushers in fall, my favorite season of the year. The campus is alive with students. The Tigers are having a solid start to their seasons. My office is somewhat quiet as our admissions counselors are out meeting you all at college fairs around the region. We are preparing for GROW which is two weeks from today! Which also means rehearsals are in full swing for Tiger Tunes. It is an exciting time of year at Ouachita!
One great part about living in Arkadelphia is the way that OBU can contribute to the education of my children. Today, my 4th grade daughter was on campus with her class to see our theater department’s children production for the year, School House Rock. How that took me back to to the Saturday mornings of my youth. I’ve been singing “Conjuction Junction” all day! I just peeked in for a couple of minutes and then headed back to the office, but I can’t wait to take all three kiddos to the full production this weekend! The theater students have done has amazing job.
Also today Dr. Horne was on one of our morning news broadcasts sharing about OBU’s recent enrollment increase and festivities surrounding our 125th anniversary. Take a look!
What better time to launch our new blog?
It is my hope that it will be a source of information (and maybe a little entertainment) for you…prospective students, parents, alumni, friends of OBU.
As Director of Admissions Counseling at OBU, you will hear from me, Lori Motl, periodically. But I will not be the only one you will hear from on this blog. We have some current students contributing regularly. Administrators from around campus will post periodically. Professors, as well. We want it to be a place where you can get a peek into campus from personal perspectives.
We also want to hear from you. Let me know your suggestions on who you would like to hear from on this blog.
Until next time,
