4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The environment of the school is great. The campus is beautiful and it isn't too big or too small. My professors are all fun and easy to understand; they make getting a degree exciting and not as bad as other people say it is. I am looking forward to call this place home for the next few years.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: Not really aware or heard of alumni doing great professional occupations, especially in art.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: There is always about two or three campus officers on site at all times. I have always felt safe here. There is very little to no crime at all that takes place here on campus.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorms at Oglethorpe Unversity are great most. A lot of them are being modernized, and new dorms are being built. Social atmosphere at most of the dorms is alway lively, too. It was very easy getting the housing I wanted. So, I wouldn't worry too much about that aspect. There is no fee for housing options. All dorms are near and around the dining hall, library, gym, and classrooms. The cost of these dorms can get very expensive. Any listed price is what you will pay for each semester stay for the year. This is the only downside since prices range from $3,000 to $6,500.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life at Oglethorpe University is pretty active considering most fraternities and sororities were started a few years ago. They have found ways to play a large role in supporting the community on and off campus.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: The topic of sports is always prevalent within campus life at my college. There are many sports for the athletic and non-athletic to participate in. A lot of students and people from the community attend many games. For sure, basketball is the most attended sport event. It gets pretty loud in the gym. The sport of quidditch from Harry Potter is played on campus grounds every year. This is because Oglethorpe University has beautiful gothic architecture that resembles the school Harry Potter attended himself. Overall, you will always find athletics to take part in no matter your skill level.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: My college is very diverse, and filled with great people to be around. The classroom atmosphere is one of my favorite experiences. Everyone is active in discussions, and allow each other to contribute in some way. My college is also unique, because it is one of few liberal arts colleges here in Georgia. So, there are many interesting perspectives people come up with at my college. These are some of the main reasons why I wouldn't choose any other college to attend.

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.
