Tau Beta Sigma formal rush.
Ouachita Baptist University’s Office of Admission Counseling will host a Tiger Day specifically for students interested in OBU’s School of Education on Monday, Nov. 11, and a Preview Day for all students on Saturday, Nov. 16.
On Nov. 16, prospective students will have the opportunity to attend a Preview Day. This semester’s Preview Day corresponds with the Battle of the Ravine rivalry football game against Henderson State University. Students will get to meet with academic deans, tour campus and join Tiger Nation in cheering on the Tigers.
“Preview Day is a day that shows off our tradition and rivalry surrounding the Battle of the Ravine,” said Motl. “It’s one of the oldest, most intense rivalries in the NCAA.”
Check in on Nov. 16 will begin at 9 a.m. in Jones Performing Arts Center, followed by an opening program at 9:30 a.m. At 10 a.m., students will have the opportunity to attend academic sessions in various locations on campus. At 10:30 a.m., a campus tour will be provided. At 12 noon, students and parents are invited to join the Tiger Tailgate at A.U. Williams Field, and at 2 p.m. the Battle of the Ravine game will begin.

Ouachita Baptist University’s TRIO programs will host a variety of events this fall to help prospective first-generation college students prepare to pursue higher education.
TRIO’s two programs, Classic Upward Bound and Educational Talent Search, are federally funded for students whose parents did not graduate from four-year universities and also meet income guidelines set by the U.S. Department of Education. TRIO’s main objective is to “create a real opportunity in society to address class, social, cultural and academic barriers,” said Brenda-Bradley Philson, director of OBU’s TRIO programs.
Classic Upward Bound at Ouachita is currently funded to serve 88 high school students by offering tutoring sessions in most core subjects. Participants of this program are required to attend one Saturday session per month during the academic school year. Terrence Carter, director of Ouachita’s Upward Bound program, said these meetings provide students “academic and social enrichment” by hosting college prep workshops and speakers from various fields of study. Saturday sessions for the current semester are scheduled for Oct. 5, Nov. 16 and Dec. 7.
Educational Talent Search, currently funded to serve 860 participants, provides counseling and admissions information to students grades six through 12. This fall, Talent Search will take students on College Hops (college visits) to the University of Central Arkansas, University of Arkansas at Little Rock and Pulaski Technical College.
Additional “tech-torial” workshops throughout the year will focus on providing students with technology information and training. One of the final TRIO events of the semester, Talent Search Day, will be held Dec. 6 on Ouachita’s campus. It will allow students to ask any remaining questions and see firsthand what college life is like.
