Membership in the Community
As members of the Oglethorpe University campus community
residential students have a specific set of rights and
responsibilities. Problems develop when one person fulfills
his/her responsibilities and another does not. Residence life
policies and regulations are designed to give a clear
understanding of what is expected of you as an Oglethorpe
University resident. It is important to recognize that a large
number of individuals live together in a residence hall. This
density of people creates a special need for being aware of how
one's individual actions can have a direct effect on others and
easily influence the environment of the entire hall. With these
ideas in mind, the Office of Residence Life has established a
number of guidelines that are intended to give you and your
neighbors a standard by which you can live and learn together.
