You’ll learn that the connections you make at Ouachita are just as important as the education you’ll receive; they go hand in hand. Both personally and professionally, Ouachita has provided me with opportunities I wouldn’t have had otherwise. —Alyse Eady

From the moment I stepped food on campus, I knew Ouachita was where I was supposed to be. I was thrilled to learn that OBU students had so many clubs and organizations to join. I couldn’t wait to get to Ouachita and get involved! —Alyse Eady
