  • Ensuring students experience a successful transition to college
  • Aiding in the development of critical thinking skills, crucial for success at Oglethorpe
  • Helping students form meaningful connections between the classroom and the community though an integrated approach to learning
  • Encouraging students to become thoughtful and active citizens of their communities
