Ouachita Baptist University Reviews
Ouachita is the best college ever! It is a great school academically, great sports programs, and everyone know and cares about one another. It is like a family, it really is a home away from home. It is located in a small town but the campus itself gives you a lot of opportunities to get out and do stuff! It is also located next to a lake and in the natural state of Arkansas so there is a lot of great things to do outside! Your professors really care about you and they know everyone by name and will do everything possible to watch you succeed. The people here really genuinely care about you, you get a great liberal arts christian education here.
It's a smaller school, but it has a wonderful sense of community. The professors are able to step in and help individual students, as opposed to being in an auditorium type setting like a big University. Even though it says it's a Baptist school, there are many people who make up the student body that have a different religious view or no religious views which makes the diversity of population and class discussions more intriguing. This also helps when preparing on working with others that have different lifestyles, morals, and views on different things, which will occur all the time out in the world.
This college has done everything they can to help me afford it and as well given me a job on campus during school/summer as another big help! The campus is so pretty and the staff actually cares about you, it's not just a college that wants money; they are always helping students and the community around us. From band to volunteering there is a place for everyone here and I'm honored to go here!
