What is your overall opinion of this school?

Oglethorpe University is an amazing place - from its gothic architecture to its grandiose library, from the Turner-Lynch Campus Center Game Room to the Cafeteria, it's an amazing place to be. There are 8 Greek Life programs on campus, every Wednesday the Art club meets, Black Student Caucus is integral to the function of the school, so there are plenty of opportunities for students to get involved. I love the active nature of the campus, and with the A_LAB hosting many events, there is always the option to volunteer. The food is excellent with options of pizza, stir fry, burgers, and also vegan and vegetarian options as well. I frequently enjoy the vegan mac & cheese. There is a Starbucks located in the Turner-Lynch Campus Center Game Room, so if the Cafeteria is closed, that is always an option. The library is extensive, and there is a museum on the second floor, and brand new film and media studios were created in the basement this year. The brand new Cousins Center for Science and Innovation is a great place to study and is very comfortable with couches and large chairs. There are private rooms to study by yourself or with a small group, and the windows are glass, so there is the option to write on them with a dry erase marker to put down your thoughts. The building has many windows so it's filled with natural light. The labs are state-of-the-art with brand new supplies. It is one of my favorite places on campus. The only problem I have is in my dorm with the water as the county has boil warnings occasionally. Overall, it is an excellent college and is very much so worth its price.

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.
