Williams Baptist University, founded in 1941 and located in Walnut Ridge, Arkansas, is a private, four-year, liberal arts college with a Baptist affiliation. Nestled in a rural setting, approximately 25 miles northwest of Jonesboro, the intimate campus fosters a tight-knit academic community with a range of undergraduate programs, notable for majors in education, religious studies, and psychology. The college asserts a less competitive application process, aiming to provide access to higher education to a broad applicant pool. Students at Williams Baptist can opt for on-campus living in one of the multiple residence halls designed to support the academic and personal development. While Williams Baptist maintains a variety of extracurricular activities, it does not have a particular emphasis on athletics renowned on a national scale.
