Petey, the Petrel is calling me. Hello.
Oglethorpe, you say? What's an Oglethorpe?
It's located in the beautiful Atlanta, Georgia, one of the fastest growing and most diverse cities in America. Whether you're looking for--
You get it, we have it all.
We have about 1500 students with our average class size being 17, which means your professors will know your name, your aspirations, and maybe your dog's name too.
Oglethorpe has one of the most diverse student bodies in the nation. Our students come from all over the country and all over the world. Over half of our students identify as non-white and many are the first in their family to go to college. Our students choose Oglethorpe because they want a school as unique and special as they are. At Oglethorpe. You'll never be just a number.
We're a private college. But that doesn't mean that we cost more than public schools. 98% of our students receive financial aid, and most receive a scholarship of at least $18,000 per year. With our flagship 50 program, qualified students can pay literally the same price as a public college in their state.
Great location, endless opportunity and welcoming community all at an affordable price. That's Oglethorpe. One more question. Are you a petrel?
Wait, what's a petrel?
That's a petrel!
