    Named in honor of General James Oglethorpe, founder of the Colony of Georgia. Beautiful architecture and very historical. Started in 1838

    If you have a decent scholarship, Oglethorpe is well worth your money. I wouldn't go anywhere else! Very few people pay the designated price tag, what with one thing and another -- most pay around 20 thousand dollars a semester, excluding housing costs, and the better students pay much less than that. If you take a full course load (i.e. 15 hours or more) every semester, you will have nothing to complain about in terms of value for the money spent. Further, as the professors are glad to assure you, a degree from Oglethorpe is not worth less than one from a better known school -- in fact, science majors from Oglethorpe are often preferred, even over Georgia Tech graduates! You are not wasting your money if you do well in your classes and major in a field that will give you good opportunities.

    It is very expensive, almost $45,000 which is a lot for college education. This being said, I think that it should be less expensive or that the school should give more financial aid for those in need.

    Oglethorpe is a well respected private school, yet the cost is not outrageous, especially with the financial aid they give.
