Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Apartments are everywhere around Oglethorpe, but they can be difficult to afford. While having a roommate can greatly decrease costs, it's not always easy to find someone to live with. Plus, other costs, such as food and furniture, can be pricey on their own. All of this needs to be kept in mind when deciding which apartment suits a student best.

Without the finances, living off-campus is pretty impossible. Many students spend their whole college careers in dorm rooms. But for those who choose not to, well-maintained, gorgeous apartments are just a few miles away. They may be pricey, but the rent is spent on the tenants. Apartments here have everything from pools to fitness centers. Several also allow residents to own cats and dogs, which is against the rules at Oglethorpe.

While Oglethorpe may be hard to compete with in terms of appearance, the apartments can stand their ground. Though stylistically appearing more modern than OU, the apartments retain an aesthetic appeal. They're not just comfortable buildings to live in but fun places to entertain visitors.
