Ouachita Baptist University’s Office of Admissions Counseling will hold two Tiger Days this month for prospective students and their families. The first Tiger Day will be held March 12 with registration beginning at 12 noon. The second will be held March 16 with registration beginning at 8:30 a.m.
Tiger Days are an opportunity for prospective students and their parents to visit the university and “see what a normal day at Ouachita is like,” said Lori Motl, OBU director of admissions counseling. Motl added that the March Tiger Days are special because, while anyone is welcome to attend, they are especially targeted at Texas students who are enjoying their spring break that week.
Tiger Day participants will have the opportunity to take a tour of the campus led by Ouachita Student Foundation members and sit in on a class of their choosing. Parents may also join a campus tour and then take part in a question and answer panel led by Ouachita’s administrators.
Tiger Days also allow students to divide up by potential major and meet with the dean of their subject areas to learn more about Ouachita’s academic programs.
Rhett Dean, a freshman mass communications major from Camden, Ark., said that participating in a Tiger Day is what helped him make his decision to attend Ouachita.
