Listening to these are great! Makes me miss OBU!!!
Love the Curry’s!
I’m an ‘89 grad, so it was interesting to hear memories from more recent grads. Some things haven’t changed, but a lot has! It was fun walking down memory lane with them. (side note: Stephen was my daughter’s choir teacher last year and now she’s a 4th generation Tiger in her first year at Ouachita!)
Ouachitonians all grown up!
I am enjoying this podcast SO much! It’s great to hear what alumni are doing now and how Ouachita helped shape them. The fast fav five is great! It definitely brings back memories of some of my favorite years spent at the best campus/college. Tigers for life!🐯
