Scope

2013

On my very first visit to OBU, Dr. Amy Sonheim presented me with a copy of the 2009 SCOPE. As my family drove home, I read through every piece. I could not imagine a better introduction to OBU. I hope this edition of SCOPE continues to showcase the creative talents God has given so many on this campus. This edition of SCOPE has been expanded to include illustrations by Katie Hopmann. As a publication, we aim to "give students and faculty a public outlet for their creative writing, ignite the interests of readers and writers alike, and help this publication expand and grow over time." Thank you for your words and your readership. A publication like this would be impossible without the support of the Ouachita community and the willingness of individuals to share their personal work with others.
