Elementary11 2 / 4 Sep 21, 2013 #1Well, location, school size, and academics are the main reasons I want to attend Oglethorpe. My freshman year of high school I wanted to attend a big University to have that big college experience far away from home but as I have matured I started to think about my future, and came to the realization that I don't want to get lost in the shuffle of a huge college campus. I want to make connections. Oglethorpe is a relatively small university located in the suburbs of Atlanta. Oglethorpe's small class sizes would be more beneficial to a student like me because of my experience in my small IB classes, which allows me to better interact with my teachers and classmates. Unlike big universities with impersonal lecture halls full of hundreds of students, Oglethorpe's smaller classes are more suited for me because I value classroom discussion, exploring new ideas, and becoming fully engaged with the subject matter. I want to know my classmates and professors. Additionally, Oglethorpe has a great and well-deserved reputation for its internship opportunities, studies abroad program, and career networking. These opportunities would enhance my college experience and beyond college help me with my future career as an Attorney. Oglethorpe would be a great fit for me not only because of all the great opportunities the school will provide me but because of what I have to offer to the school a love of learning, the desire to be a strong contributor to campus life, my commitment to community service and not to forget my capture the flag and ultimate frisbee skills!
