My name is Emily Schleiff and I am the admissions counselor for Northeast Arkansas, Tennessee, and Missouri. I’m originally from Benton, AR, but I spent most of middle and high school living in Beijing, China. I graduated from Ouachita with a major in Business Management and a minor in Christian Studies in May 2018.

While at Ouachita I was involved in several different things. I was in a social club, I participated in tiger tunes all 4 years, I studied abroad, and I went on a mission trip with Campus Ministries. The best part of all of this was the people that I connected with along the way. I got to meet people from a variety of majors and backgrounds. I was also able to have meaningful conversations with professors that went beyond academics. Ouachita allowed me to move outside my social comfort zone, and the people I met have helped shape me into who I am today.

When I’m not at Ouachita, I like to knit, listen to music, play board games with friends, and hang out with my dog Etta.

I’m so happy that I get to call Ouachita home for a little longer as an employee. I’m excited to show you just how special Ouachita can be and help you determine if this is the place for you! If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to call or email me. I look forward to getting to know you!
