Some common misconceptions about EF Atlanta:

“EF Atlanta students are also Oglethorpe students.”

“Everyone in America looks the same.” Actually, Atlanta is a very diverse city and is steeped in America’s Southern traditions. Students from more homogenous societies may be surprised.

While EF Atlanta students do get to use all the Oglethorpe facilities, they are not university students and attending EF Atlanta is not conditional acceptance to Oglethorpe University.

“EF Atlanta is downtown.” While EF Atlanta is a quick ride on public transportation downtown, the university is in a suburban area with its own shopping and restaurants. Atlanta is very spread out and students will enjoy exploring the various neighborhoods and communities of Atlanta.
