Let’s get stormy!

We’re Petrel Proud

Full Color
Oglethorpe has one of the oldest traditions of intercollegiate athletics in the state of Georgia. Our 16 teams play in the NCAA’s largest division, Division III, in the Southern Athletic Association (SAA)– a league of the most selective liberal arts colleges in the South. With a full 33% of our student body playing a sport, student-athletes play a big role at Oglethorpe, driving core values like dedication and teamwork. And unlike the stories you hear about big college sports, our student-athletes earn higher GPAs on average than the rest of the student body, proving they can hit the books as hard as the ball.

The other 66% not playing a sport? They’re yelling from the stands, playing for the band, belting out the cheers or putting their hands together for our favorite teams. And cheering alongside them is our mascot, Petey the Stormy Petrel— named one of the most memorable college mascots of all time by ESPN.

TOUR THE FACILITIES

Top-notch facilities make Oglethorpe a great place to play hard or just enjoy a game.


Hermance Stadium

There's the famous Hermance Stadium, which dates back to the 1920's and whose gates were once hailed as the most beautiful stadium gates in the country. It's an Atlanta icon on Peachtree Road where the former Oglethorpe football team once beat the likes of Georgia and Georgia Tech! It's now home to our Stormy Petrel baseball team.
