4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I love how private yet functional they make the living environments.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: The fraternitys aren't all that here. I'm fact it seems as though they don't even exist.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: I love how invested the school is in their athletic department. However it hasn't been overshadowed by what is truly important at this school.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: This is a school that cares. Teachers don't treat their work like just a job. I appreciate that.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I don't partake in Greek life. They're fairly nice people. Wasn't one frat thrown off campus for the second drug bust in four years?

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: I don't really partake in the athletics, so I can't speak to it. They don't publicly assault people, I suppose.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Professors are fantastic if you're genuinely interested in learning.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I like the class sizes, and I don't have a problem with the majority of the teachers I've had.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I feel like if I actually studied more, I would have a good chance at a job in my field. But since we live in Atlanta and the education here is better than average, the majority of students shouldn't have a hard time finding a job or internship in their major.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The school is a very small student body, but the majority of students can find someone to talk to or relate to or make friends with. We all want to see the other succeed, and we try to help out when we can.

5 College Freshman

Diversity: The greatest thing about Oglethorpe is the high diversity rate

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: I don't really partake, so I can't say, but I know a lot of people drink and smoke

Health & Safety: So, there have been a few incidents with Campus Safety in the past. There have been people who were sexually assaulted, and Campus Safety swept it under the rug. Also, there have been a few break-ins this year that easily could have been prevented, but Campus Safety only ever rides around in their little golf carts giving out tickets. There was an instance in Traer with a student who had a gun, and everyone saw the police show up, but Campus Safety did not communicate what the problem was to any of the students. We are not informed about incidents, which I do not like. The Campus Center does host events, like Green Dot Training, that help inform the students about what to do in an emergency, but it is not enough

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.
