4 College Freshman

Administration: The campus is strict in the right areas. The only issue I've heard people complain about is the lack of parking at the dorms. Sometimes the students get in trouble for parking in the wrong places when there isn't anywhere to park. Generally students can have visitors on campus, but they have to call in the visitor to campus safety.

Scholarships: The financial aid process was very easy for me. I was offered a 4-year scholarship, along with other scholarships. The best way to get financial aid is to keep your grades up in high school. Make sure you fill out your FAFSA. If you need more aid, I suggest going to the financial aid office or business office.

Campus Food: The food is very good. The dining hall is large and fits a lot of people. I don't know the menus as I don't eat on campus very often. There seems to be variety in the food.

Administration: not happy with how things were handled but not sure things would have been different

Campus Housing: I do not think any consideration was put into matching room mates nor do I think as a private school they were very selective in choosing students.

1 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: There is no off campus housing selection at my school.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Off-Campus dining is great and easy to get too, very diverse.

3 College Junior

Administration: The administration help out but have to be pestered in order to do so.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: I'm very thankful for all my scholarships but the school's tuition continues to be raised significantly and the scholarships are not increasing at a fast enough rate.

3 College Junior

Party Scene: Its a college party, everyone is sloppy and a mess.

2 College Junior

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.
