My name is Adam Wheat, and I am excited to serve high school students and their families in Central Arkansas, Connecticut, Delaware, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island and Vermont as they begin their college journey.

It’s crazy, but I actually marked Ouachita off my list of colleges because of something my dentist heard through the grapevine. However, as my parents and I were driving by during my Great College Tour, my dad suggested we might as well make a “quick stop”. That visit changed my life because it showed me that God had a place for me at Ouachita.

Some of my favorite memories here include the friendships and skills I developed through groups like the Ouachita Student Foundation, the Carl Goodson Honors Program, and the Campus Activities Board, as well as the creative collaborations I got to join and even lead like theatrical productions, donor events, and three original, full-length films my friends and I made over the summers.

After graduating in 2010 with a major in Mass Communications and a minor in Art (Graphic Design), I went on to receive my Master of Fine Arts degree in Creative Writing (Scriptwriting) from Full Sail University in 2014.

In addition to my passion for hearing people’s stories, I also love creating and appreciating magical experiences through theatre, architecture, and interior design. I also like to host my friends in my home, so we can enjoy my extensive collections of games and artisan pop-up books.

My time as a student at Ouachita led me to begin my career here and then, after a few years away, to return to be a part of the difference Ouachita is making in the lives of students just like you. So please don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions you may have. I look forward to hearing from you!
