My name is Dawson Pritchard and I am the Admissions Counselor for the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex and most Midwest states (CO, IA, MN, ND, NE, SD, WI). I am from Denton, Texas, but have the joy of calling Ouachita and Arkadelphia home. I graduated from Ouachita in May 2014 with my Bachelor of Arts in Kinesiology.
I love to be active and run around playing soccer, rugby, ultimate frisbee, swimming, and anything else where I can be enjoy being outside with my Blue Heeler, Rosie. I love to cook or bake! I am engaged to my wonderful fiancée, Griffin, who’s currently teaching in China!
During my time at OBU, I was a member of the men’s swimming and diving teams and served as the tiger mascot for two years. I also worked as a student worker for the Ben M. Elrod Center for Family and Community, where I fell in love with serving others. Ouachita showed me what it meant to care for others in a capacity that I never knew possible and I want to serve you and your family the best that I can!
When I received a call from Ouachita to return as an admissions counselor, I jumped on the opportunity to join the team! I am so excited to have the opportunity to serve incoming students and show them the many reasons that I fell in love with OBU, as well as to help them find their own reasons to love it.
Please don’t hesitate to call or email me with any questions or comments! Feel free to schedule a campus visit so that I can have the pleasure of meeting you in person!
