Ouachita Baptist University’s Office of Admissions Counseling will host its first Tiger Day specifically for students interested in studying in Ouachita’s School of Fine Arts on Friday, Nov. 1.
“There will be something for visual art students, theatre students and music students,” explained Lori Motl, OBU director of admissions counseling. “They’ll get to do some special things that we don’t get to do on a normal Tiger Day.
“If you’re interested in fine arts, it’s a great opportunity to really get a feel for what that major would be like,” Motl added. It is a time when “students can rub shoulders with other prospective students interested in their major.”
Check-in will begin at 9:30 a.m. in the Hickingbotham Hall lobby, followed by an opening session in Young Auditorium. At 11 a.m., students interested in music and theatre are invited to sit in on performance arts class in McBeth Recital Hall, and students interested in visual arts will get a tour of the programs offered in that area. The OBU Jazz Band will perform during lunch at 12 noon, and guests will have the opportunity to visit with current students and faculty from the School of Fine Arts.
After lunch, current students and admissions counseling staff will lead campus tours. At 2 p.m., Ouachita faculty will coach students for auditions or portfolio preparation. Optional auditions and interview sessions will begin at 3:30 p.m.
All guests are invited to Ouachita Opera Theatre’s production of Die Fledermaus (The Revenge of the Bat) that evening at 7:30 p.m. in Jones Performing Arts Center.
