As a young child in Atlanta, I only knew Oglethorpe to be that castle-like place on Peachtree Road. Years later, after spending years in the North and Midwest, my college search brought me back to Oglethorpe. I loved the small, caring, and friendly community I experienced during my campus visit. After researching colleges all over the east coast, Oglethorpe was the only school to which I applied. My favorite part of my Oglethorpe education is definitely the Core Curriculum. It pushed me to think in new ways. It gave me tools to understand any experience, no matter the context. In my four years as an Oglethorpe student, I had more opportunities that I could’ve imagined. In my Early Modern European history class, I was able to study original magazines from the 18th century from our archives. I gave a campus tour to college presidents from Turkey, Kazakhstan, and Azerbaijan as an Admission Student Ambassador. I was president of Oglethorpe’s chapter of Sigma Sigma Sigma Sorority. I travelled to Arizona and Tennessee to present my research at academic conferences. I even kissed a boar! My Core classes prepared me to examine and synthesize those experiences, and more, in ways I never could have before. The Oglethorpe family and community has also extended into my life as an alumna and a staff member. I’ve gained an even greater love and appreciation for Oglethorpe as I’ve learned what goes on behind the scenes. Everyone here is committed to extending and bettering the Oglethorpe family, Atlanta, and the world through a comprehensive, relevant, and meaningful education.
