What makes an Oglethorpe education special? From faculty mentorship and small classes, to hands-on learning and community engagement, to dynamic career preparation in the classroom and in the city of Atlanta, the educational experience at Oglethorpe is unlike any other. Hear from our distinguished faculty about the ways they make our applied interdisciplinary curriculum high-impact, relevant, and yes – fun!—for students throughout their time at OU.
