    Oglethorpe is right by Atlanta, so there is a TON of cool things to do. On campus, there are lots of clubs and events going on all the time.

    You're in the out skirts of Atlanta. They are events ALL the time. I went to a food festival with my friends and had a blast. Atlanta has a lot to offer for college students.

    The Boar's Head Celebration and Party, at the end of the Fall semester, is a must! It is the best party on campus, and everyone -- faculty, staff, and students -- goes to it! There are a wide variety of other activities available throughout the year, from Greek parties to lectures and Museum receptions. Go to the plays and concerts -- they're well worth it. If you are not from Atlanta, you have many places to explore in the city, some of which are offered as free trips through the Center for Civic Engagement. I especially recommend the Botanical Gardens, especially if you want a relaxing place to walk or read. The freshmen are given a huge party every fall at the World of Coke, which is quite popular. I personally remember the old World of Coke, and have never been very happy with the new one, but it is definitely an option. If you like history, you definitely need to go to the Atlanta History Center (their main exhibit, Turning Point, is excellent, as are most of their traveling exhibits) and you should try the Atlanta Cyclorama.

    Oglethorpe is always conducting some sort of event on campus so there is always something to do. In the down time when there are no events, the rec room has a wide variety of games and other entertainment to keep you occupied. If you want fun off of campus there is a mall minutes away that has shopping and movies.

    Atlanta is your back yard. You have everything to do on your free time. From going to the park, to finding a great restaurant downtown, to going to an amazing concert, Atlanta offers incredible opportunities in your free time.

    There's always something to do on campus - art exhibitions, theatrical performances, sports events, student organizations, community service opportunities and Greek life sponsored events.

    There aren't many activities on campus. There aren't many sororities and fraternities and the ones that are there are small. Parties are few and far in-between. Usually you hang out in small groups on campus. There are several very nice malls in Atlanta and tons of movie theaters.

    There is always something going on around campus, but if nothing looks appealing, just take a bus into Atlanta.
