3 College Junior

Guys & Girls: It's hit or miss. there are all types of people to suit anyone's likes

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: since we are so close to Atlanta there are a lot of options to suit whatever you are hungry for.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: the school won't help you. you just have to go in to Atlanta and fend for yourself

3 College Junior

Facilities: we have some nice newer buildings and if you are a science major you have really nice equipment. some buildings are really old and from the 60's and haven't been updated in a while.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: I have never felt unsafe on campus even though campus safety is slower to respond. they are getting better at it though

4 College Junior

Majors: There are a lot of internship opportuniites and connections available due to the closeness to Atlanta

4 College Junior

Majors: Its great to choose a major because Oglethorpe doesn't make you claim one until junior year so you have time to decide.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: It always feels like there are more Greek students then there are.

3 College Junior

Athletics: Certain teams don't take their sports seriously but the rest are very dedicated. the basketball team has the most support.

3 College Junior

Diversity: the EF students cause so problems because they aren't always treated the same and have more lenient rules.

3 College Junior

Academics: the classes offers sometimes screw kids out of finishing in four years but the more popular majors are usually safe.

3 College Junior

Academics: the classwork is the right amount of reading and lectures for most teachers though some want too much participation.

3 College Junior

Nightlife: We don't have that many frats and the sororities can't have parties but the do hold other events.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: It's nice because you never have to share a bathroom with more then three people. The rooms are fairly spacious in relation to other dorms.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: the best dorms are noso and phase II. The worst are jacobs and alumni hall. Jacobs and alumni hall had roach infestations a few years ago. You also get what you pay for and they are cheap.

2 College Junior

Health & Safety: we don't actually have a health center on campus. You must walk or drive to Smart Care next door and it takes ages for a doctor to call you back. It's easy to commit a crime on campus and even if the crimes are reported it's not guaranteed that anything will be done about it

2 College Junior

Campus Dining: There aren't very many options. The university stopped doing late night a few years ago but they started back up at the end of the 2013-2014 year. The only good thing is that we got a starbucks last year.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Not to many options of choosing your own housing.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: School spirit is always high for the sports.

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Everything is excellent because it is close to metro area.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Social atmosphere is very good and students are friendly.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: I am a math and science person.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: I plan on having an internship.

5 College Sophomore

Facilities: Core sets us apart. No GenEd requirements. You only have to take classes that you want to take or that pertain to your major.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Most students here are on some type of aid or scholarships. Work Study is hard to get if you are a freshman. The school is very helpful in answering any questions.

Overall ExperienceWhat's This?

Oglethorpe is unusual but only in the best of ways. The education is great, and the environment is supportive, but a stay at Oglethorpe requires hard work. Some parties are fun, but some are boring, and there are many nice people but also some cliques. However, most everyone is welcoming and not afraid to be themselves —eccentricities are the norm on campus. If someone's looking for fun, they'll eventually find it.

While many scholarships are available, it can prove hard to maintain the GPA required to keep them. This makes studying very important, and it can sometimes interfere with the social scene. For others, though, the curriculum is not so bad, and there is plenty of time to enjoy themselves both on an off campus.

Oglethorpe is a safe and nurturing environment where a student can expect to be treated as an individual. The classes are tiny but by no means lacking in comparison to courses at other schools. In fact, an advantage of Oglethorpe is the one-on-one treatment a student can expect from teachers. There aren't many students here, so it's easy to get to know everyone. The school is beautiful, and so is the atmosphere—it's safe and, even better, inviting.
