Show Us your Life - ALMA MATERS

 NOTE:   I added on my left sidebar the SUYL schedule for the next few months!!!!

I thought it would be fun if we all shared about our Alma Maters today. When you link up - PLEASE put the name of your college in the link instead of your blog. I thought it would be REALLY fun if we bloggers could connect to maybe other alumni from our schools!!!!

I went to Ouachita Baptist (pronounced "wash-i-taw") in Arkadelphia, AR. Some famous alumni include the Christian group Point of Grace and Mike Huckabee (a possible future presidential candidate!)

I chose OBU because I wanted to go to a small school and I wanted a Christian school. And it turned out to be one of the best decisions of my life! I made amazing friends - a lot of who are still my best friends and I got a wonderful education.

When I think about OBU - I remember the classes and the great professors but mostly my memories are of :

Tiger Tunes
(tri chi won in 1993!)
Tiger Traks
(which I never won but had a lot of fun trying)
Rush, Bid Day, and Pledge week
and so many fun times with friends
OBU also is such a neat "family". I love meeting other OBU grads because it's just a special bond. One of the things I love about my church is it is filled with OBU grads including our pastor who is also on the board of trustees. I get so excited every time some of our graduating seniors go to OBU. We had 4 go this year and I am so happy knowing they will have the best four years of their lives there too! I've also met SO many OBU friends through blogging in the last couple of years - some a lot younger and some older. It's like an immediate friendship!
And of course I'm hoping my kids will choose to follow in my footsteps and go to OBU also!

I hope to read lots of OBU posts today!!! And I hope you connect with bloggers from YOUR school!!!
