The Living Room of Campus
The Turner Lynch Campus Center (TLCC) is the center of campus life at Oglethorpe. The TLCC opened in 2013 and is home to the Atlanta Laboratory for Learning, Starbucks, the Petrel’s Nest (Dining Hall), the offices of Residence Life, Greek Life, and Student Activities, a game room and the student store.
Looking for a place to relax and have fun after classes? The Game Room, located on the first floor of the TLCC, is the perfect place to take a study break and hang out with friends. Featuring three flat screen TVs, arcade games, pool and foosball tables and a lounge area, this space is dedicated to our students.
The game room is staffed by Oglethorpe students who can assist in checking out and operating various gaming systems. The space is also used to hold events hosted by RAs, student organizations and programming board.
Be sure to review the Game Room policies and procedures.

The bookstore, operated by Follett, is located on the first floor of the TLCC and keeps all the books and supplies you will need for your classes in stock in addition to Oglethorpe t-shirts, accessories, decals, mugs and more.
The Atlanta Laboratory for Learning
The A_LAB (short for the Atlanta Laboratory for Learning and long on possibility) is unique in higher education. It was created to link classroom theory and real-world experience in tangible, creative and unexplored ways. Over four years, Oglethorpe students use the resources and guidance of the A_LAB to mesh what they learn from professors and books and lab experiments on campus with what business people, policy makers, healthcare workers, scientists, community activists, and artists are doing – every day – around Atlanta, the United States, and the world.
Under the A_LAB roof is a cadre of collaborators in the areas of Global Education, Professional Development, Civic Engagement, and Undergraduate Research.
