Around Atlanta

You’ve got the entire city at your fingertips – go explore!

While there are tons of great opportunities to have fun and get involved on campus, Oglethorpe students have Atlanta right in their backyard. And we think that is an opportunity you really don’t want to miss!

Visit our Petrel Partners—area businesses that offer great discounts to Oglethorpe students on food, entertainment, clothing and more!

Town Brookhaven right next door to Oglethorpe’s campus has over 60 dining, shopping and entertainment options. A new walkway to Town Brookhaven will be built next to the Dorough Field House as part of the new Gables Brookhaven.

Within a ten-mile radius of campus you’ll find:

  • 100+ restaurants
  • 16 museums (including one right here on campus!)
  • 11 movie theaters
  • 9 shopping malls
  • 1 – 18,000 seat arena

You don’t have to have a car to explore the city. The Brookhaven MARTA train station is just a mile away and allows you to skip the traffic and get around Atlanta easily! The student store even sells discounted MARTA passes. Oglethorpe’s Campus Safety offers shuttles to campus from the Brookhaven MARTA station from 1am-6am to make sure you make it home safely.

Each semester, the Student Activities Office offers discounted tickets to the “must-see” Atlanta attractions. Look out for more information about purchasing tickets for the Georgia Aquarium, Zoo Atlanta, Atlanta Braves games, World of Coca-Cola, Atlanta Hawks games and more!
