4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Chicken express is the best

3 College Sophomore

Administration: Boy's and girl's have open door night on different days.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: If you apply for the parent plus loan, choose the full amount you can get--- refunded checks are always great

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: The caf is not the best, but there are many different options. The student center is great.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Living on campus is great, because it doesn't take long to make it to class if you're running late.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I don't live off campus but I've heard it depends on which apartments. The nicer ones are more expensive but they are all within walking/biking distance. They are all close to each other and can be nice for older or married students.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are a good amount of different restaurants around town. There are the normal chain fast food places but you can also find a good amount of small Mexican or other restaurants around town.

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: I don't typically party. But if there's a social club event I will occasionally go.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: I feel like the rules can be changed slightly. I feel at times they are too strict when they should be more lenient and other times are not strict enough when they should be.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: The financial aid people were very helpful in helping me receive my financial aid. I felt like they were very knowledgable as were easy to work with.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: I wish the caf had more healthy options, a bigger variety at the salad bar, and just more variety in general. There are some days when the food is great and others it's not so great. I would like to see better choices for meals.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I love Ouachita. Housing is old but it is not run down. Living in a. Dorm has given me opportunities to get to know people I would not have otherwise. The process for choosing dorm and rooms inside the dorm is a fair and easy process by hours. The housing department does a good job in organization and doing everything in a timely manner. All the dorms are relatively close to the classrooms and everything is very close together but not crowded. Overall for living in a dorm I know there could be much worse options and I've loved living in the dorms.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I don't know anyone who lives off campus. You have to be 22 or married to live off campus.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: It's what you would expect from a small city, since Arkadelphia is a small town.

5 College Freshman

Administration: It's what you would expect of a Private Baptist University, but if you aren't doing anything illegal, then you should be fine.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: I wouldn't know, but some of my friends party, and they seem to have fun.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: The caf is close to your classes, has variety

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The freshman dorms aren't all that great, but the upperclass dorms are awesome. The Village dorms are the best.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: The only way to live off campus would be if you are married or over 22. Everyone lives on campus, or they live in the University apartments, which are a block away from the campus.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Arkadelphia is a very small town and its neighboring city, Caddo Valley is also a very small town, so there isn't a whole lot going on here. Most of the local places close around 7pm, and then a lot of the fast food places close around 12am. The taco bell supposedly stays open til 3am, but I have never gotten service from an employee after 12:30am.

4 College Freshman

Administration: Our Administration has the best interests in mind for us. Our Presidents, Dr. Horne is a very kind and humble man. He is always walking around campus and is easily approachable.

Scholarships: Ouachita gives out scholarships like there is no tomorrow if you are involved in activities. They also give out great academic scholarships as well.

College Freshman

Party Scene: I wouldn't know about the party scene. When you decide to attend Ouachita, you sign a contract agreeing to term and conditions. A lot of things that happen at parties are against the contract, so I do not attend parties.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: Every student has the same meal plan. So we all have 450 dollars to spend at Chick Fil La and Sandella, along with Dr.Jacks Coffee. The caf can serve some weird food at times, but there is always something to eat.
