Oglethorpe University, located on 100 acres in Atlanta’s Brookhaven area, provides a superior education in the liberal arts and sciences. Renowned for its groundbreaking Core program, Oglethorpe's academically rigorous programs emphasize intellectual curiosity, individual attention, close collaboration among faculty and students, and active learning in relevant field experiences. Oglethorpe joins theory and practice in its A_LAB (Atlanta Laboratory for Learning), an incubator for students' experiential learning in civic engagement, global education, professional development and undergraduate research. In recent years, Oglethorpe has entered an era of innovation and growth, evidenced by increased enrollment and philanthropic giving, and new strategic entrepreneurial partnerships. 

Since 2013, Oglethorpe has seen the addition of a new campus center, a residential complex with state-of-the-art classrooms, and the expansion of arts and athletics facilities. Oglethorpe’s campus is home to the Conant Performing Arts Center, Oglethorpe University Museum of Art, study abroad partner LeadAbroad, and the Piedmont School of Atlanta. The Oglethorpe Stormy Petrels compete in the NCAA Division III Southern Athletic Association.
