My name is Adam Wheat, and I am excited to serve high school students and their families in Northwest Arkansas, California, Idaho, Nevada, Oklahoma, Oregon, and Washington 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!
