Financial aid is wonderful at this school. It's a private school and is therefore expensive, but they will do their utmost to help you attend.

    Stepping through the gates of Oglethorpe University transports you into a warm welcoming community. Everyone has the same goal of succeeding and with the personal help from professors it is difficult not to. Contrasting the academic life is the on campus events that can relieve any stress that a college student can build up during the term.

    OU is a great school that provides a concrete education to live better lives. In it liberal arts way of teaching, students will understand more about themselves as well as the environment around them. Overall OU provides a tremendous college experience within all areas.

    Oglethorpe is the best! Class sizes range from 13 to 15 students per class so you get to know your professors and classmates easily. Dorm life is diverse, friendly and exciting. There's always plenty of on-campus parties on the weekends and and people hanging out in dorm common rooms or student union on week nights. I love that Oglethorpe is centrally located and close to downtown Atlanta but on a private, gated campus in Brookhaven. The athletic program is exceptional. I'm really glad that I decided to attend OU!

    Oglethorpe University is a great school for students who have innovative ideas to put them into action. However, if you're looking for a party school, this isn't the place for you. Oglethorpe is the place for students who want to make a difference not just in their fields, but in their world.
