3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Everyone's financial aid is very different. Agnes tries to help each student as much as possible. I would suggest checking on your loans and scholarships regularly to make sure everything is going smoothly.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Freshmen dorms are exceptional in size compared to most colleges and they have air conditioning. Most of the Upperclassmen dorms do not have air conditioning. Rebekah, Main and Inman are most Upperclassmen's first choice and if Hopkins had a better location, it would be more popular. Everything is fairly close proximity, unless you have to trek to the Observatory. The social atmospheres depends on your hall mates. The housing lottery could be handled better. I feel like the names in each drawing are not mixed up enough to give everyone a fair chance.

3 College Senior

Majors: Although I think that the majors available to Agnes Scott students have little variety, the ones offered are very strong. As an international relations major I was able to chose a part of the world to focus on. Focusing on Latin America encouraged me to relate the Spanish classes I have with the international relations and political sciences courses. I'm beyond satisfied with the quality of education I have received. I have had professors who are very dedicated to the classroom and proficient in their respected areas of study. Further more they encouraged me to travel and study abroad which has really enhanced my overall college experience.

5 College Sophomore

Transportation: MARTA which is the pubIic transportation system is great.The train is only $2.50 and literally takes you anywhere you need to go. The train comes every fifteen minutes so if you miss one it's not a big deal.

2 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: The school encourages everyone to live on campus for all four years. Almost no one commutes.

3 College Sophomore

Parking: Parking is easy to find, however the student parking deck is a little far from the dorms.

3 College Sophomore

Nightlife: Nightlife at Agnes Scott doesn't truly exist, BUT we are located almost 10-15 minutes away from downtown Atlanta. There are plenty of clubs that you can go to on the weekends, not to mention GA State, GA Tech, and the AUC are very accessible. If you don't want to party, there are hookah spots and lounges to relax at when partying gets boring. I enjoy going downtown just to view the city and grabbing dinner. Don't let the minimal nightlife at Agnes Scott deter you from coming. There are plenty of options since this school is less than 20 minutes away from downtown.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: Probably more lenient than most all-girl schools. Usual rules apply, like underage drug use is prohibited of course. Cheating is a big deal; Agnes has a lot of trust for their students under the Honor Code, so integrity and honesty are important.

3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Decatur is very family-friendly. Dog-walkers and families are seen walking around campus all the time. Suburban area filled with many dining places. If you're looking for clubs and parties, it's better to travel to the city. Festivals take place yearly.

5 College Sophomore

Diversity: Very diverse ethnic backgrounds. High acceptance and tolerance of others regarding religion and sexual orientation. Mostly Democratic/liberal students in my opinion.

3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: The social atmosphere is okay, but because the campus is so small, you often find yourself having to see the same people everyday,and you can't really avoid seeing people that you might feel awkward around after a while. Please consider the "close community" aspect of this school before you come here because it can ultimately shape your academic performance, especially in a negative way if you don't like being in small social environments.

3 College Freshman

Parking: Sometimes parking is hard to find, or you may have to park farther than usual. Other than that, it's not bad.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: All dorms are spacious. The best option is apparently Inman, and lofts are available. There's no worst option, but upperclassmen can be placed in freshmen dorms if their applications/payment is turned in late. The people on each floor determines the social atmosphere. It's pretty costly, and the housing process is simple.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: There's visibility among upperclassmen, and very strict rules for those who are under-aged. Usage is quite a bit. There's no peer pressure and policy enforcement is reasonable.

3 College Freshman

Diversity: We are a very diverse institution. It is a very safe environment which is a lot of the draw for people to attend. You may think that there are only three type of genders but you are wrong. You may think that there are only three sexuallites but you will also be wrong. Agnes students are not afraid of correcting your political correctness. Watch yourself or you will be on the wrong end of an argument you didn't even know you were a part of.

3 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Agnes is close to downtown Decatur, which has many places to dine out but it lacks a nightlife -- everything (even McDonald's) closes at 10. Safety around campus great because the schools owns most of the property around the campus and renters have to go through a special screening process. Gettin away from campus it easy because the Marta, public transportation, is just down a couple of blocks. And because Agnes prides itself of diversity and acceptance, the student body is very unaccepting of non-accepting people, if that makes sense. For example, if you believe that fur coats is nice, most people will not be able to respect that you like fur coats and will brand you as an animal killer or something.

Local Atmosphere: There are lots of local attractions near Agnes Scott. Many restaurants and places to shop. If you don't have a car there's MARTA and most places are within walking distance so getting somewhere isn't a problem and Agnes Scott is surrounded by other schools so there's a lot to do for fun.

5 College Student

Guys & Girls: You'll find all kinds of girls at Agnes Scott from all around the world. Agnes Scott is very rich in diversity.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Living on campus can really be a pain especially considering what one can receive...If you want space one has to sacrifice air . Or if you want air then one is sacrificing space... However if you a junior or senior then you really have the pick of the liter... (i.e. the campus apartments with space and air)

3 College Junior

Facilities: Student life on campus truly depends of the type of person you are...there's lots of outdoor activities if you enjoy nature and campus center if you enjoy the gossip. Or the dorm room media rooms if you like the staying inside and enjoying the company of others as far as meeting new people.... Any place could turn into a hangout area....

3 College Junior

Facilities: The different programs here a pretty diverse as far as getting what you want. The campus does there best to accommodate to there students if something isn't offered. However, one has to do a lot of research as far as you interest go because the school isn't going to help as far as doing the extra labor unless you do... Now for social events, Agnes really isn't the school to attend if your trying party, there are social events just far and in between. We do have a lot of traditions that require active engagement from the students but as far as frat parties and concerts Agnes really isn't the place for that...There are very focused when it comes to academics.

3 College Junior

Athletics: The athletic department isn't really that big as far as the choices. The gyms are okay but not great...

3 College Sophomore

Majors: Depending on your Major, it will vary if internships are a requirement. I haven't had one yet but I do plan to. I want to work with physical therapists in a hospital setting. The school offers an internship connection program but the best way to find what fits you perfectly is your own research.

4 College Sophomore

Facilities: The facilities here are nice. Agnes Scott is a historic school so the beauty of the campus in undeniable. As for specific places, the student center is nice. There are places to study, workout room, piano, pool table, and an eating area called "The Hub" where students can eat and talk while watching tv. The library is very nice with multiple places to study in a quiet area.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: I am a Psychology Major and it is the most popular major on campus. The professors in this department are passionate and knowledgeable. The workload isn't too bad. It challenges you to think about what is learned and how to apply it outside of class. They are very helpful in finding internships/ job opportunities for students.

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.
