Oglethorpe is great! There are small class sizes with professors and faculty that are qualified and who truly care. At Oglethorpe, the students' voices are heard, it's safe, it's easy to make friends, and there's ALWAYS an opportunity for fun or free food. The academic experience is also out of this world, if you love your major you'll be in class with other people that love the same major...And if you don't know what major to pick, there's lots of people to help you figure it out! Networking is a big deal as well, and there are countless opportunities basically just thrown in your face, whether it's an internship or study abroad, or a job after graduation. It's expensive, but when you consider the top-tier resources inside the classroom and out, the plethora of student activities throughout the semester, and cafeteria food that actually tastes good.. it's worth it. Plus the campus is gorgeous! Many movies were filmed there. That being said, the wi-fi sucks. They're trying though.

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.
