Humans of Oglethorpe

Humans of Oglethorpe: Olivia Kelly ’21

“I started off as a Biology major and had a Narratives of the Self class with Dr. Hebbar and I fell in love with the novel Beloved. She convinced me that I should pursue English and from that I started getting more into Politics. Dr. Hebbar has really broadened my perspective of what politics really […]

Humans of Oglethorpe: Hannah Womersley ’23

“I love painting. My grandma and dad were always big painters, so I got it from them. I did that all throughout high school. I get to use this art in other ways for my future, like designing and marketing. I’m currently in AST [Alpha Sigma Tau], training to be an admissions ambassador, and I’m […]

Humans of Oglethorpe: Natasha Byrd

“I have a doctorate in physical therapy, but I’m not practicing in that. My baby here is health promotion and wellness. I love health equity and chatting with people about health communication. Pause for Paws is probably my favorite thing I do. I followed in my mom’s footsteps because she does physical therapy. I loved […]

Humans of Oglethorpe: Keagan Stromberg ’21

“I originally came to Oglethorpe for basketball, but I also knew it would be a good way to get myself out there with my music. Outside of campus, I like to go into the city and find different places to shop, whether it be bookstores, consignment stores, or pop up shops. I also like to […]

Humans of Oglethorpe: Rachel Lester ’23

“I’ve been to Haiti twice, and the Dominican Republic, on a mission trip, which is probably the coolest thing I’ve ever done. We went for a week at a time and stayed with an organization. We’d go out to the villages and fulfill whatever they needed, like water purification, painting their houses, or planting fruit […]

Humans of Oglethorpe: Dr. Kate Keib

“My path to get here is definitely different than other professors. I knew from the time I was in high school that I wanted to be a journalist. There was no doubt in my mind I wanted to be in the news industry. I went to a college very similar to Oglethorpe—professors who were really […]

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 […]
