Welcome to Ouachita! During this unprecedented time of social distancing, we aren’t offering in-person visit opportunities on campus, but we still want to share Ouachita with you! You can experience campus from wherever you are using the videos and interactive elements below. Additionally, our admissions counselors are still available to talk with you to answer your questions and help you continue your college search.
To view our typical campus visit options to plan for a future in-person visit, see obu.edu/visit.
Since we are unable to walk you around our beautiful campus in person, watch this video as our Guest Experience Coordinator Adam Wheat gives you a personal campus tour.
VIRTUAL TIGER DAYS
Virtual Tiger Days are group events that you can participate in from anywhere with an internet connection! You’ll get an insider’s perspective on campus by hearing directly from the president, admissions counseling staff, faculty and current students. You’ll also have the opportunity to visit in small groups with the dean of the academic school you are interested in to learn more about your future major or area of study. Even as we connect remotely, we want you to have the opportunity to meet with members of the Ouachita community face-to-face to see what is so special about the Ouachita experience and to get your specific questions answered.
