College Consensus released its 2018 guide to the Top Consensus Ranked National Liberal Arts Colleges and Oglethorpe University is on the list.
As College Consensus describes it, “the best liberal arts colleges in the nation keep the spirit of traditional college education alive, while reinventing the classical humanities and sciences for the 21st century.
