Ouachita Baptist University conferred degrees on 360 graduates during its 135th Spring Commencement held Saturday, May 14, on the front lawn of Cone-Bottoms Hall. Graduates received Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Science, Bachelor of Music, Bachelor of Music Education, Bachelor of Fine Arts, Bachelor of Science in Nursing and Master of Science degrees, as well as post-baccalaureate certificates for Dietetic Internship.
Ouachita Baptist University will break ground on a 144-bed, $12.6 million student apartment complex this month, with plans for it to be open for the Fall 2022 semester.
Part of Ouachita’s mission is to serve local churches, Arkansas Baptists and churches of Ouachita’s alumni and friends – which includes individuals with special needs. Ouachita’s master’s degree in applied behavior analysis (ABA) aims to do just that. Hear from Meaghan Wall with Stonebriar Community Church's special needs ministry for a biblical perspective of why this is so important.

Ouachita launches graduate Dietetic Internship during pandemic
To say you started anything new in 2020 would, well, raise eyebrows – especially launching something as involved and hands-on as an academic program including clinical healthcare. But that’s exactly what Ouachita did during the 2020-2021 academic year, launching its first graduate programs in more than 20 years.
Rickey Rogers ('02), Dean of Students and Director of Residence Life
Rickey and Lydia Rogers have developed more than 20 years of history at Ouachita, in part due to simple geography. With Rickey recruited to play football from six hours away in Mississippi and Lydia coming from six hours away in Texas, Ouachita and Arkadelphia were right in the middle – which made attending college and settling after graduation here between their families a perfect fit.
