Oglethorpe University is included in the latest edition of the Fiske Guide to Colleges, a bestselling compilation of the top 300+ institutions in the U.S., Canada and the U.K.
Now in its 40th year, the Fiske Guide highlights the “best and most interesting” colleges and universities.
Striving to be “helpful, honest, and straightforward” in its review of colleges, Fiske includes quotes from real students to give an insider’s look at what it’s really like to be a student at each school.
One Oglethorpe student is quoted: “I have never breezed through a class. The academics are so rigorous.”
While another says, “[Faculty] really do care for you intellectually and personally.”
In its profile of Oglethorpe University, the guide specifically calls out OU’s Atlanta location, academic values and faculty, Core program and “highly diverse student body and extensive financial aid.”
“In a sea of large Southern state schools, Oglethorpe stands out as a place where students come first.”
According to Fiske, the publication is “the best-selling college guide on the market and the one that high school counselors recommend most often to students and parents.”
Edward B. Fiske served for 17 years as education editor of The New York Times and launched the Fiske Guide to help college-bound students and their families make their educational choices. For 40 years, the Fiske Guide has shared “the unique personalities of schools” and offered in-depth college descriptions, ratings, up-to-date tips from current students, and tools for broadening and narrowing prospective students’ college lists.
