Residence Life & Dining
Oglethorpe offers a wide variety of layouts and formats for students. We have eight residence halls on campus but six houses on Greek row. They all are cool except for Greek housing. We're fresh here you are usually grouped with same gender, same sex, however you identify. And then once you are a sophomore upperclassmen you get to choose who you live with. We have a couple of dining options on campus as well as in the surrounding areas. Petro's Nest is our cafeteria style dining, it's all access. So for students who have a full meal plan, you just swipe, go eat-- eat as much as you want. Downstairs, we have Stormy Brews-- and in Stormy Brews, you can get coffee, pastries, and a lot of grab and go options. We make accommodations for students with dietary restrictions. Students will sometimes have specialized meals, and the cafeteria has also grown when it comes to like vegan options, and different things like that-- and providing more options for students across the board. It was strange for me to come here as an international student, but then when like my roommate and my suitemates arrived, I felt a lot better. He already had like the experience and they could like help me guide like, hey, these are some cool events you can join-- these are some cool clubs. Through ResLife, we plan a lot of different events. Sometimes, just simple movie nights, so we can have snacks and hang out and relaxing. Kind of just general stuff to help you know take you away from maybe focusing on school, and get acclimated to the environment, and have fun, and you really get settled into the Oglethorpe community. This is our home for the next four years. And so we want to make sure that we are accommodating as possible just like they would be living in their own home.
