Ouachita Baptist University has recorded its largest residential enrollment since 2012.

ARKADELPHIA -- The 2019 fall semester marks the third consecutive year of growth in residential undergraduate enrollment at Ouachita Baptist University increasing from 1,492 to 1,506 since last fall.

Fueled by growth in new students, Ouachita also recorded its largest residential enrollment since 2012.

Ouachita’s three years of successive growth, including this year’s 1 percent increase, is noteworthy given the 9 percent decrease in the number of students enrolled in all of the state’s colleges and universities as reported in June.

“The growth is further evidence that Ouachita is rising,” said Dr. Ben Sells, president. “Ouachita is increasingly recognized by students and their families as well as by those who rank universities.”

Including undergraduate residential, online and concurrent programs, Ouachita’s current enrollment stands at 1,633 students.
