The True Definition of a Student-Athlete

Please join me in congratulating Emmanuel Engulu, who has just been named a University Scholar by the College Society Advisory Board. To be named a University Scholar, a student must exhibit the highest level of academic achievement with the goal of serving Christ in the university community. A student applying to become a University Scholar must have at least a 3.5 GPA, a recommendation from a faculty member, written statements describing his or her Christian faith, and a Statement of Intent to Earn a PhD. As a final step in the process, the candidate is interviewed by members of the College Society Advisory Board.

University Scholars from Ouachita have won prestigious fellowships, including a Pew Graduate Fellowship and a Fulbright Fellowship, and they have been accepted at graduate programs at Yale, Notre Dame, Duke, the University of Illinois, Emory, Oxford, the University of Massachusetts-Amherst, Florida, Baylor, The Eastman School of Music, The Medieval Institute at Leeds University, Wheaton College, Southern Methodist University, and Hebrew University. Emmanuel, a Christian Studies/Theology and Kinesiology double major, joins Stephanie Beck and Sarah Stark as our other University Scholars on campus this semester. PROUD OF YOU EMMANUEL KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!!

It’s really encouraging to have individuals come forward who are willing to contribute their knowledge and experiences toward the development of our team! Last night the Tigers had a visit from All- American performer at the University of Kansas and member of the 2005-2006 NBA champions Miami Heat's Wayne Simien. The guys truly enjoyed the wealth of knowledge that Wayne shared with us and know that it will help us in preparing for the upcoming year! THANK YOU WAYNE!
