Humans of Oglethorpe: Kevin Dew

“I graduated college in 1977 with a major in math and a minor in theatre, which isn’t your typical combo. I always had in mind when I retired, I wanted to do something in the theatre again. I was just making a living, not pursuing my real passion. So when I retired three years ago, […]

Humans of Oglethorpe: Ferrin Tinter ’20

“I transferred here my sophomore year of college. Coming here was really scary because I hate change. I didn’t know if I’d make friends, but on my first day of class I sat in front of the girl who is now my best friend. Coming to Oglethorpe has really helped me find my niche and […]

Humans of Oglethorpe: Taylor Roberts ’21

Humans of Oglethorpe: Jalisa Kassam ’20

“When I came here my freshman year, I was stuck in my shell. I was only involved in two things, soccer and a sorority. Towards the end of freshman year, I made friends with a lot of seniors. I realized how much they were leaving behind and how they made their mark on this school […]

Humans of Oglethorpe: Will Sherlock ’22

“I chose to major in Political Science because it’s something I studied a lot in my own time and I’ve been very passionate about it for a while. I was initially considering sociology as a minor but I loved the classes and made it a double major. I’m drawn to them because I’m very much […]
