Named after a 1914 Ouachita graduate who discovered oil in Arkansas in 1924, O.C. Bailey houses 86 freshmen men. Sinks are provided in each room and community bathroom facilities with individual stalls and showers are located on each floor.
“O.C.” was originally built as a men’s hall, but for years housed upperclass women. Beginning in August 2009, freshmen men were once again housed in O.C. Bailey.
