Favorite Place at Oglethorpe: My favorite place at Oglethorpe is the Great Hall in Hearst! I immediately feel relaxed and focused whenever I step in that room because of its immense beauty.

Why do you love OU? I love Oglethorpe University because I have always felt that people on campus value me and my future. I have found mentorship and friendship in so many people affiliated with OU that I cannot even count anymore. I will always think of OU as a home away from home!
