Ouachita Baptist University will welcome prospective students and their families to campus for Tiger Friday March 12. To register, visit www.obu.edu/tigerfridays.
Tiger Fridays offer prospective students and their parents an opportunity to experience the feel of Ouachita through campus tours, visiting a class, panel discussions and a meal in the Ouachita Commons. Visitors will also enjoy personal interaction with OBU’s admissions staff, faculty and administration.
“If you’ve been wondering what it’s like to be a student at Ouachita, Tiger Friday is the perfect opportunity to come sit in on classes and meet the very professors you’d be studying under as a student,” said Julia Thompson, OBU admissions counselor. “And get some of those puzzling questions about financial aid and admission answered while you’re at it. Come be our guest!”
The day begins with an opening program in Young Auditorium at 9 a.m., followed by an opportunity at 9:30 a.m. for students and parents to learn more about Ouachita’s academic programs in a meeting with an admissions counselor and the dean of the school that they are interested in entering. An admissions counselor will then lead visitors on a tour of campus.
At 10 and 11 a.m., students have the opportunity attend one or two classes of their choice. While students are in class at 11 a.m., parents are invited to visit with administrators for a question and answer panel in Berry Chapel.
At 12 noon, guests are invited to eat in the Alumni Room of the Ouachita Commons, where they can visit with other parents, students and members of the Ouachita community.
The next Tiger Friday will be held April 9. For more information, contact OBU’s Office of Admissions Counseling at (870) 245-5110.
