Ouachita Baptist University has set several enrollment records for the Fall 2021 semester, including the school’s highest total enrollment in 55 years as well as the largest freshman class, best freshman-to-sophomore retention rate and highest four-year graduation rate on record.
“Students are coming to, staying at and graduating from Ouachita in record numbers – all in the midst of a pandemic,” said Dr. Ben Sells, Ouachita president. “This reflects the great care that our faculty and staff take to create a transformational college experience, the unique campus culture students help create and the generous support of alumni, friends and churches.”
