Campus Dining: I don't care for the food

College Freshman

Athletics: I don't really know anything about the sports at my school

4 College Freshman

Diversity: Its much more diverse then my highschool

Off-Campus Dining: Being in downtown Decatur has its perks. I love being able to walk 5-10 minutes to a restaurant and grab a bite to eat. The food selection is pretty nice, but if you want a better selection, just ride MARTA or drive down to Atlanta, which is only 10 minutes away from the school. I wish the restaurants in downtown Decatur had more student discounts though. Chick-Fil-A and Green Ginger are the only restaurants with nice discounts.

Overall Experience: I love attending Agnes Scott, but the tuition plus room and board is very expensive. As I am entering my junior year, I have already accumulated about $23,000 worth of student debt. I love that my courses are challenging, but if I could do it all over again, I don't know if I'd attend this school. I am struggling to find money to pay for tuition and I do not want to take out any more loans.

Nightlife: There isn't a lot of nightlife at Agnes Scott. If you have a car, you can ride downtown and try different clubs or go to different schools to attend a party. If you don't have a car, MARTA is available, but once 12AM - 2AM roll around, you'll have to find someone to bring you back to campus, or you'll have to catch a cab.

Campus Strictness: The school is very strict adn if you break any rules you get a j board case where you could potentially be kicked out.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: While you can apply for off campus housing, it is very hard to get. You have to have family within a 30 mile radius or be married or pregnant. The odds of getting it are few to none.

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.
