5 College Freshman

Academics: From an academic stand point I would have to say that my school is always on top. My school challenges everyones academic strengths and abilities. Professors generally want students to do well in their classes and are willing to help students do better. The professors at my school assign a pretty nice workload to students in order to push them forward abs challenge them to do better.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Safety at my school is good. It's nice that we know most of the security personnel around campus, but I do believe that security at my school could be a little bit better if the safety services took done specific measures.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: There are many student work options that are available. Also, the student/career center is very helpful with letting students know about internships that are available and what students can do to obtain that internship/job opportunity.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I have thoroughly enjoyed my courses at school so far. The fact that my professors are so passionate about what they are teaching is extremely helpful and makes the class fun. There are many different classes offered to all students and with the small class sizes we are able to fit more information into class time. Since the classes are small we are also able to not only focus more on the information but we get to have more of a relationship with our professors in a professional manner.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life is a part of the socal life on campus. The fraternities/sororities are very helpful on campus and involved with most of the events that take place.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: The sports at my school are okay. My school is not like the University of Georgia where campus life is evolved around the football team there. Though sports at my school are not a big part of campus life they are very well attended and entertaining for those who show up.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: My experience at Oglethorpe University so far has been just that, an experience. The fact that my school is small has it's benefits because I get to know my professors better than I would on a larger campus. Also, my professors are always willing to help me with any problems that may occur. I have been enjoying my time at school and would most definitely choose to attend Oglethorpe University again because the people here are very welcoming, helpful, and understanding to you.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Overall the security on campus is good and they strive to provide a safe environment on campus. However, the only concern that I have is that during the day the campus is open (gates and entrances), and this does not prevent intruders from entering campus.

During the night, the campus security locks and secures the gates, and security measures are in place to prevent intruders.

I recommend that high security measures should be in place at all times (day and night)

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: All the teachers that I have had so far have tried to help me as much as possible. With the small class sizes offered (usually no more than 20 people in a class) it is easier to get one-on-one help and they offer tutoring in the academic success center, but I have not needed to go there yet. My first semester I took 17 credit hours and the work load was not too bad, until finals of course.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The value of my degree will include my achievement in future employment and academic endeavors. I currently have an internship prospect at Benchmark Physical Therapy company in Stone Mountain, GA. This internship will allow my to obtain valuable work experience in the field of physical therapy.

Regarding Alumni Network, I have not had a lot of experience with the Alumni Network at Olgethorpe, other than those that teach at my school. The school provides ongoing job fairs and networking experience that will allow students to explore opportunities for career placement.

I have not yet utilized the career center/service on campus, but I plan to do so in the near future.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The buildings are old and my room has an ongoing mildew odor that comes from the dresser drawers that are built into the wall and are immobile. The ceilings are old and have an occasional roach that comes from the tiles in the room.

The closets are located near the door, for security reasons is not a good idea, and the doors to the closets do not lock. So basically, anything of value in the dorm room can be stolen.

The main common areas located in the dorms lack any amenities suitable for socialization (flat screened television with cable, music, electronic devices, pool table, etc...What is this purpose of these rooms?

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: There appeared to be a healthy balance between Greek and non-Greeks. I did not experience or observe traditional snobby or cliquey attitudes.

Those that wanted to pledge did so and were supported. Those that different were not looked upon differently. It appeared that everyone embraced the differences of each other.

The social atmosphere on campus was peaceful and uneventful.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: I did not participate in athletic events or activities much.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: My favorite topics were sociology and art. I enjoyed the unique schedule that allowed me the flexibility to study, socialize, and work. I would recommend more culturally diverse social activities and ongoing special events on campus.

I would choose the school again due to the quality of education, appropriate environment that allows me to focus on my studies, and the small like campus atmosphere.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: There are only a few cases and Ou does a great job of addressing and providing support to victims as well as working to enact preventive measures on campus as well.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The core pushes you to think critically. It's amazing how much you learn in such a short amount of time. I was impressed with how most professors will go out of their way to help students succeed.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The academic success center and the ALAB works to help students obtain internships and jobs related to their future careers.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I love the housing at my school. My residence hall is right in the middle of classes and the cafeteria. The other residence halls are more of a walk but the buildings are absolutely beautiful.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Only 6 houses on campus but the Greeks do throw decent parties. They aren't always advertised so you kinda have to be in the know. Greek life isn't huge on campus but it does play a part.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Could be better, but being the school we are Oglethorpe is centered on academics and not sports.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love my school because of the location, the small class sizes, and professors who truly care about the students. It's small enough to be able to form right bonds with peers but also allows for me to have down time with myself when I want to relax. The academics are challenging and will prepare me well for law school, as the core program pushes students to think critically and analytically. The financial aid is also very generous.

4 College Senior

Diversity: This campus is very diverse and it is so amazing to see how welcoming the student body is.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
