与召开, we formally bring together new and returning students with faculty and staff to begin the 138th year of 瓦希托浸会大学.
“欢迎来到瓦希托，”他们会说. You’ll drive through the parking lot of Francis Crawford Hall or Flippen-Perrin Hall or O.C. Bailey Hall; your car will be loaded down, and perhaps your parents’ cars will be loaded down, too. Or you might be planning to be greeted from the passenger seat of a U-Haul that your family insisted on renting.
Early Registration (ER) is a key step in becoming a Ouachita Tiger. If you’re new to Ouachita – or just new to this experience – here are some helpful tips to make the most of ER:
每隔一个春天. 丽贝卡·琼斯, 瓦希托大学传播学教授, takes a group of students from the OBU at Sundance class to Park City, Utah, 体验圣丹斯电影节. This was the first year for the trip since the 新型冠状病毒肺炎 pandemic. Jones and 12 students – some of whom experienced Sundance virtually in 2021 – spent Jan. 22-27号在犹他州参加音乐节.
瓦希托浸会大学 has been a home away from home for students from all over the world. 尽管瓦希托成立于1886年, the first international student only stepped onto campus in 1923 and came all the way from China. In 2023, we have reached 100 celebratory years since Ouachita’s first international student arrived, and our campus continues to value the attendance and presence of international students.
Many Christians have a chance to go on a mission trip, whether it be local or somewhere no one would ever think about going. 在沃希托河, students are given the opportunity to travel and share their gifts and talents with people around the world. 今年夏天, 我去波兰和"突破"一起工作, teaching English to university students as well as having the opportunity to share God’s word.
One thing that high school does not teach in classes is what happens when your dreams do not work out. 传播系大三学生瓦莱里娅·戈麦斯说 & Alajuela媒体/多媒体专业, 哥斯达黎加, has a testimony that encompasses this challenging path she had to navigate.
Ouachita’s favorite set of faculty football brothers – Head Football Coach Todd Knight and Dr. 蒂姆·奈特，J.D. Patterson School of Natural Sciences – continue to make a lasting impact on campus. As Coach Knight led his team to wins on the football field year after year, Dr. 奈特在课堂上经历了他的胜利. This purple-and-gold bleeding set of brothers truly make Ouachita a better place. Coach Knight keeps Ouachita’s successful football program on the map as his brother is the face behind the entire Jones Science Center operation. 这两兄弟是瓦希托的特殊资产, and Ouachita wouldn’t be the same without the Knight family.
乘坐救护车, answering calls from patients in desperate need and starting his day off at the crack of dawn each morning describes a small part of 诺亚巴克’s fast paced job as an EMT.
根据你前任的报告, your Ouachita education and experience have prepared you exceedingly well. 事实上, 教职员工对你的投资, 家人和同学的支持, the time and effort you have put forward and the grace of God help you go from this place with an advantage.
让我们面对现实吧. Winter is tiring, and sometimes that can lengthen the second semester.
Whether you are a senior in high school or about to graduate from college, 获得工作经验永远不是一个坏主意. Most professional careers require employees to have some – if not significant – experience in their chosen field in order to be hired.
当我们反思Dr. 马丁·路德·金. 假期，重要的是要记住博士. King was a civil rights activist who fought continuously for racial equality and social justice. Dr. King condemned discrimination and segregation because of race, and he affirmed that the American dream belonged to all citizens and that everyone should have an equal opportunity to reach that dream.
Leaving all other sports behind, 怀亚特的房子 decided to pursue powerlifting. House, a freshman biomedical sciences major from Little Rock, Ark., achieved first place in the 90kg USPA for his junior class in 2021年4月. 他保持着507磅的硬举的州记录. His current personal records include 430 pounds in squats, 卧推245磅, 还有585磅的硬举.
他那富有感染力的笑声. Amy Sonheim and the careful clicking of a keyboard from Dr. Doug Sonheim would help fill the Language and Literature department for years before their combined retirement from Ouachita in Spring 2022. 他们在瓦希托工作的这些年里, the couple has made some amazing changes to the university.
Ever since he was young, 瑞安·惠勒 obtained a passion that would follow him the rest of his life.
