What is your favorite place on campus and why?
Rab Rodgers Field, home of the Tiger baseball team. Many hours in my college days
were spent in the sun cheering for my now husband, Marc Carozza (OBU ’00). So many
great memories watching and spending time with friends and family. This is where a
Reddie girl from across the street fell in love with a Ouachita Tiger and converted
into a Tiger for Life.
