Fall is always a special time of year, but I seem to enjoy it all the more after the hot summer we endured. It could be, however, that the anticipation of experiences and events in October has caused excitement.
You already know that October brings Fall Break, which also means the semester if flying by. We have gone through several accrediting visits for our various schools and the university as a whole recently, and I have observed yet again what fine young men and women we have here. My desire is to see all of you complete your degree right here, so avail yourselves of the exceptional professors and classes. A Majors Fair will be offered on October 26.
We are only days away from Homecoming Week and Tiger Tunes. I don’t have to tell you that no university has any more excitement than Ouachita for these few days each year during this week.
I want to encourage all of our student body to be involved in some way during Homecoming. Check the Tigernet for information about Homecoming activities, Tiger Tunes, the OSF Silent Auction, etc. You also can hear more about Homecoming Week during Chapel next Tuesday, when the Homecoming Court and Hosts and Hostesses will be presented. Don’t miss it!
Shortly after your return from Fall Break, Ouachita will be hosting a community celebration for the citizens of Arkadelphia as a part of our 125th celebration.
This truly is a special time of year. It is my privilege to be your president. “I thank my God upon every remembrance of you, always in every prayer of mine making request for you all with joy.” Philippians 1:3-4.
