Does OBU encourage nurses to share Christ in the healthcare facility?
Ouachita Baptist University
My assumption would be yes. It is an integral part of who we are, but I would encourage you to email the director of our nursing and ask her. Her name is Dr. Brenda Trigg, triggb@obu.edu. She would be happy to answer.

Ouachita helped me find and define myself. It was a rough journey, but everyone from my peers to the staff to the President of the university was there to help me. With it being a small school, I was able to find a good group of friends quickly. This also defined my journey. The professors also genuinely care about both your grades and your health, some more than others.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The food in the cafe is not so great. You have a limited amount of money to eat anywhere else on campus, but the number of other places is limited to 4. You will run out of money if you're not eating in the cafe regularly. Though the staff in the cafe are AMAZING, the food is definitely not.



I really liked the atmosphere and the friends that I made there! They are lifelong friendships I’ll carry with me forever.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

I wish there were more things to do on the weekend. The food was not very good except for the STU. That was sometimes opened at weird times.
