  • I am a current student here

    There's so much to do at Ouachita, the dorms are nice, and I enjoy my classes. Arkadelphia is a bit small, but you can always find things to do with friends.

    Ouachita is a great place to be. The campus is gorgeous and full of activity. From playing Frisbee on the lawn in front of Cone Bottoms with friends to attending a Social Club event during TWIRP week to playing Just Dance in the dorm there is always something to do. The best part about Ouachita is the people. Wherever you go on campus you are sure to see someone you know.

    I love it at OBU! I've met amazing friends, no family here. I'm on the swim team and it's great! Workouts are hard but I love it. Coach Killackey is much more than a coach and my teammates are family!

    The school has so many different activities to get involved in. There are opportunities to volunteer for Elder Serve, Big Brother/Big Sister, Backyard Bible Club, and many other groups. Socially, intramural sports are a great time of bonding. There are also social clubs on campus that create a great community.
