3 College Junior

Campus Housing: I think the dorms are nice, but for $10,000 a year, they're not nice enough. I understand the dorms are unique because they've been around for decades, but updates need to be made! Students should not be charged this much money when they can't even get on an elevator without it getting stuck between floors.

3 College Junior

Campus Dining: Our food isn't terrible, but they need to add more flavor to it! I think Agnes caters too much to vegetarian and vegan options, as well as gluten-free. I understand that people don't eat certain foods, but it's annoying when you think something will taste good, but instead, it's flavorless. Vegetable options need to be expanded and more menu items need to be added! WHOEVER COOKS THE GRITS ON SATURDAY MORNINGS SHOULD BE THE ONLY PERSON ALLOWED TO COOK THEM DURING THE WEEK.

3 College Junior

Nightlife: If you don't have a car or if you don't know anyone with a car, nightlife may be difficult. MARTA runs up until 1 or 2 in the morning, but most parties don't end until 3 or 4 in the morning. Even if you decide to ride MARTA to a party, it can be inconvenient because the train may be late or it may be packed with people, especially if there's an event going on. Taxis are available, but they can be expensive. If you do have a car or if you know someone with a car, nightlife may be much better. I have my own car, so I'm able to drive to different campuses, such as Clark Atlanta University, Georgia Tech, and Morehouse College. These schools (and others) have great parties, but they can get boring once you've been to many of them. I don't drink alcohol (and I'm not of age), so I don't know much about drink prices. Clubs are around Atlanta as well, such as Cream Ultra Lounge, Mansion Elan and Opera Nightclub, but they have age restrictions, so please check!

College Junior

Guys & Girls: Since Agnes Scott College is a women's college, there aren't any male students. The LGBT community is widely accepted, but it can be overwhelming at times. As with heterosexual couples, I'm not a fan of PDA and you'll definitely see a lot of PDA on campus.

College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Unless you're a commuter or you have special circumstances, you must live on campus! I don't think it's a terrible concept, but it can be frustrating. If I wanted to live off campus and commute, it would be difficult because within a five to ten mile radius, housing can be very expensive for college students.

4 College Junior

Facilities: I love our library; however, I think the study spaces should be more publicized for students who don't typically access the library. Our campus is beautiful, but I think the school focuses too much on the scenery (i.e. our grass) more than fixing broken toilets or WIFI.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: Campus crime isn't as prevalent as other campuses, but I think students need to be more careful on who they allow in the dorms. Campus security cannot prevent theft and other crimes if you are allowing anyone and everyone into the dorms.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: The professors are very well versed in their field of teaching and they have a lot of patience. The professors also have good connections if you want a job or internship in the future.

Academics: The teachers are very helpful and the office hours that they hold are very convinient.The workload is not horrible if you know how to study, and if you don't know how to study the staff is very helpful with developing those skills.

Campus Strictness: Some situations could be dealt with differently. Sometimes the honor code isn't taken as seriously as I think it should be.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: This School is mostly about acedemics

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: ASC is located in downtown Decatur. As a whole downtown Decatur was listed in the top 10 places to eat at in Atlanta. They had to make it into a collective group because of all the good restaurants located in downtown. There is a range from cheap to classy, but you can almost always find a place to fill your craving.

College Sophomore

Greek Life: ASC doesn't have a Greek life. It is a traditional women's college and is very small so we don't have the room or really the need to have a Greek life.

3 College Sophomore

Majors: ASC is only a college so it doesn't supply as many major options as the larger universities do. But even though that is the case, ASC has great feeder and duel-enrollment programs for the larger school in the metro-Atlanta area like GA Tech and Emory.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: The major programs at ASC almost all have funds and programs to help students get internships. The major program will fund the internship which helps opens doors that would have otherwise been shut to students. The internship that I was apart of was a for-credit internship where I worked during the summer then came back in the fall where I was enrolled in a class with the goal to create a work to show at a public health convention.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: ASC is small so we don't get a huge showing for our D3 games. We don't have any intramural sports because we are a very small school. The athletic facilities are great and are free for any student to use and they can use them without free of being yelled at or judged by athletic teams. Even though we don't have a huge sports involvement our school spirit is top notch and our mascot is at every home game of every sport.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love ASC because of the personalization I get. Teachers and staff know me by my name and take time to talk to me and listen to me if I need them.

Off-Campus Housing: ASC has a policy where students who don't live within 30 miles of the campus are required to live on-campus. There is only one off-campus housing opition and that is located at the apartment complex next to the school. The only reason this rating got a "it's bad" is because it is the only off-campus housing option. Other than that, everything is very good about these apartments. They come fully furnished and with a kitchen. There is ample parking and you can choose who lives in the apaartment with you. There are options for 2 people, 3 people (share a 2 bed, 2 bath apartment), and 4 people (share a 2 bed, 2 bath apartment). I'm not sure if there is an option for a single person apartment. There probably is though.

5 College Sophomore

Diversity: ASC has a collectively open mind and is very accepting of diversity. Over 100 countries are represented by the student population and the school sponsors the local refugee school's lunch where young girls come to campus and eat and can talk to the students. Some of the college students volunteer to teach English to the girls at this school and to the students on campus who don't speak English as their first language. The LGBT community is also very active on our campus. We have "safe zones" and safe zone trainings which are free and open to everyone where students can come and open up about their thoughts and opinions without judgement. This is very helpful for the LGBT community as well as one of the reasons that the school has such an accepting atmosphere.

Agnes Scott is a liberal arts school with a small professor-to-student ratio, with rigorous academics and a thriving club life. The professors are all passionate about the subjects they teach and have had some experience in their fields, too. For the most part, they bring their all to each class. Not only are the professors intelligent and passionate, but they are also personable. There are few professors who are difficult to speak with about problems, anxieties, or comments about a class. The same can be said for all of the faculty and staff at Agnes. Everyone is committed to allowing students to learn and grow. The small community helps everything be personal.

Agnes helps to shape students into well-rounded individuals with the skills to enter a career. In order to get the full Agnes experience, it's important to put yourself out there. Many skills can't be acquired without reaching out to the College's offices or clubs/organizations. However, the most important thing any prospective student should remember about Agnes when making her big decision is that Agnes is a small, private, women's liberal arts college. All of these factors are important to consider because they will determine the experience you have. All in all, the Agnes experience is a wonderful one, but students should be aware that this experience is only obtained if they actively engage in the community around them.
