Humans of Oglethorpe

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

“I visit a lot of museums. I actually work at the High Museum. I am one of the Mellon Curatorial Fellows of 2018-2020. I work with curators, design exhibitions, and do research. Anything that’s a public facing event. This year, I’m working with photography curators and it’s wonderful because I’ve taken photography here with Christina […]

Humans of Oglethorpe: Dr. Jay Lutz

“One of the things that attracted me to this job was its position in Atlanta. I have been able to arrange for students to go to a range of French-related events and field trips. I believe very strongly in the importance of connecting the classroom to activities in the wider community. So, I try to […]

Humans of Oglethorpe: Grace Hallenbeck ’22

“My faith is a big part of my life and I was really scared about coming here because I didn’t know if I’d find my place in Atlanta. A few things helped me find that. The first thing was joining the golf team here at Oglethorpe. The team truly feels like a family to me. […]

Humans of Oglethorpe: Tyson Quander ’21

“I applied to all the Ivy Leagues. I didn’t think about Oglethorpe until my mom told me I should apply. She graduated from here. I came to Admitted Students Day and I loved everything about it—campus life, the students, and the tight-knit community. I’ve been here for three years now and I’m working to become […]

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 […]

Humans of Oglethorpe: Dr. Iona Wynter Parks

“When I first came here, I was only teaching one class. By the end of the year, I was teaching full time. I wasn’t used to this size liberal arts college. I went to a huge school in Quebec and I played sports, so it was very different. When I walk around campus, students speak […]

Humans of Oglethorpe: Coyvan Greer ’20

“I’ve worked in Admissions since my sophomore year, August of 2017, and it’s my favorite thing I do here. I came here and I already felt like I was in a family because it was very personal. I’ve given over a hundred tours by now—it’s like working at Disney. I love making people feel known, […]
