Oglethorpe University Top Questions

What's unique about your campus?


The best thing about Oglethorpe University is the CORE Program. This program combines all of the basic education requirements into one class that students take each semester through senior year. Because there is only one required class, students are able to take classes they are actually interested in that give them credit towards their chosen major.


The best aspect of enrolling at Oglethorpe University is the small population size that makes interaction between the students and faculty more feasible than at a larger university. The personal attention and accessibility of the professors creates an environment where students can acquire the most of their education when extra assistance is needed to accomplish academic goals.


Small class sizes, tight-knit community, being close to Atlanta while still being surrounded by nature


Oglethope is a wonderful small college about an hour north of my hometown of Newnan. The staff at Oglethorps is very helpful and encouraging to me as a freshman entering college for the first time. My golf coach, Coach Vaios, takes a personal interest in her team and is very helpful. She is like a second mother and I feel like I can talk to her about anything. All the staff members are available to support me and help me be successful in my college studies.


The best thing in my opinion is how open-minded the people are . They make you feel welcome. When I started going to school down there i did not know anyone, and i found it easy to make friends. It made it so much easier to make this transition while being so far away from all of my friends and family back in Kentucky. They became my support system, and a very big part of the reason i wanted to continue attending this college.


I consider the best thing at my school to be the small classes and great teachers. Each professor knows what he or she is talking about, and having this makes learning even easier and better since we have such small classes.


Again, the people. It is a very open and welcome community.


Oglethorpe has an amazing sense of community and loyalty. Students, professors, and alumni are all dedicated to helping you find a place for yourself.


The small community feel makes you feel like you all have something in common that kinda binds you together.
