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.

Academics: the classwork is the right amount of reading and lectures for most teachers though some want too much participation.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: The workload of math and science majors... difficult but worth it. You really get to understand the material.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

While students disagree over whether or not the educational experience "could be better," the education itself is one of a kind, and it encompasses a wide range of topics and teaching methods. Teachers will generally try to help their students in one-on-one settings, and they attempt to challenge their students rather than give them "easy A's." Students sometimes leave classes with sore brains, but the new knowledge they've obtained will be worth the effort. Students are encouraged to read the assigned material and to pay attention to in-class discussions. Outside work is also encouraged in order to further develop one's understanding of the material. Most classes can be described as interesting, and the mandatory core program has been called "intriguing." The core consists of two four-hour (meaning four credit) classes each academic year.

Students agree that Oglethorpe tries to meet each student's academic desires; although not every type of class is offered, there are ways to take classes outside of the standard listing and still graduate with an Oglethorpe degree. In short, Oglethorpe may not have everything, but the staff is willing to help fit students' wishes. If the desired class is doable and the student expresses the interest, a way to form one can be easily found; this is also true of majors and minors, clubs, and interest groups.
