What is your overall opinion of this school?

It’s a small private college, but it houses a huge community that acts like a family. Faculty are always willing to help, you just need to take the initiative to go to their office. There hasn’t been one person I’ve meet who is attending this school who doesn’t want you to go to this school because they love it at OU.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The academic scene is very professional yet easy for new students to get accustomed to their new curriculum. It is also easy for students to get involved as Oglethorpe has plenty of clubs of interest to choose from. However, the housing and food on campus is about average at best, but improvements are being made to raise the quality. Oglethorpe is one of the best when it comes to academics and students certainly get their money's worth, but it still has its problems like any other college.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Oglethorpe University is a great school because they help you achieve many accomplishments in the world with their bountiful opportunities that are offered at the school. We are also encouraged to take classes that may not help us necessarily learn about our desired careers but help us engage in learning for the sake of it being fun and beneficial. At this school, there are many after-school clubs that help you to engage in the school community, the general community, and help you engage in kind acts that help make the world a better places but also helps shape your character to help you create a better version of yourself.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Oglethorpe University is an extremely unique college. The people, atmosphere, staff, and campus have me very interested about going to this school within the next few days. I already know my room mates, and I hope to get to know them even better. The traditions, lore, and look of my college is very intriguing and will make anyone interested this school.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Its campus is beautiful and it is located in a really good spot in Atlanta because everything you need is near. Class size is small therefore you get to learn more and have one on one experience with professor. Its a really small community where you get to know everyone.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Beautiful campus, Hogwarts looking. Enhances critical thinking, opens the mind. Small university, individualized teaching. Great academic support and follow-up. Small classes with personalized attention, liberal arts education, focus on service, combined with access to Atlanta's large city resources all create an incredible educational experience. They are also generous with financial aid.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I honestly am highly satisfied with Oglethorpe University. It's a small school so I can get to know people better and I'm making a lot of good friends there. It's in a great area in Atlanta with a MARTA station nearby. Our sports teams win, they hold events and activities on-campus. The professors are awesome and I believe I made the right decision by coming here.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Oglethorpe is a great place to be! We're a small campus, and that's one of the things that each student here loves about the school. We know and each other, we're all involved in matters that concern each one of us, and we have a lot of "Petrel Pride". Our professors are not just lecturers in our classrooms, they are family. They are always there when they need the, they offer unconditional support, and they're a big part of what Oglethorpe is today.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Oglethorpe University is truly an odd, but loveable place. While our food may not be great, along with several other colleges, the people I have met during my time here definitely makes up for it. I have met more kindhearted and genuine people here in my freshman year alone than I had ever before. Oglethorpe University is similar to the quirky aunt at family reunions. You overlook some of the bad traits, such as frustration with the administration for not conveying information about certain events that would have been beneficial, because she's just so fun and different from anyone you know. As well as having a beautiful, and for the most part calm campus, the classes are pretty interesting as well. Students get plenty of one-on-one time with professors because of the small class size, and have numerous opportunities to succeed. The Psychology Department in particular is comprised of many wonderful teachers, who relate readings/concepts taught in class to relatable real world examples. It is easy for students to get caught in the "ogle bubble," but the bubble is equally as easy to break. The entire city of Atlanta surrounds the school allowing for breaks from the caf, as well as routine.
