Ouachita Baptist University

Overview

As a leading liberal arts university, Ouachita has earned a strong academic reputation. Combine all that with a close-knit campus community and you have a setting where students thrive academically, spiritually and personally. Year after year, Ouachita is ranked among the nation’s top colleges by such publications as U.S. News & World Report and Forbes. Our students also earn state and national recognition for accomplishments ranging from scientific research and business competitions to student publications and musical performances. We even host an annual Scholars Day to celebrate academic achievements. We invite you to discover the exceptional education Ouachita provides. Our 12:1 student-to-faculty makes a huge difference. Our students get to know their professors on a personal level as role models and mentors. Beyond the classroom, campus life always is busy with Tiger Tunes, Tiger Serve Day, social clubs, intramurals, campus ministries – or just hanging out with friends at Dr. Jack’s.
