3 College Freshman

Parking: Although I do not drive, I am very aware of the rules and regulations of student and visitor parking. Students have to make sure they plan ahead for parking, because their will not be any left. Our public safety department definitely pays attention to cars and where they should be parked.

5 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: Agnes Scott holds all its students to an Honor Code system and it is taken cery seriously at the school. People get fined and have Judicial Court or Honor Court cases against them if they break the honor code. Incorrect parking results in a ticket and fee while underage drinking and other violations can result in fines and essays.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: As you get older, the housing options become a lot better and seniors and juniors have the option to live off campus if they would like to pay extra.

College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Agnes Scott is an all-girls institution. There are a few exceptions where transgender students attend so there are students who identify as male on campus, but these are few and far between.

5 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Decatur is an amazing small town and Agnes Scott is right next to its downtown area. Plus Decatur is right by Atlanta which makes everything in a big city accessible with out needing to live in the city.

3 College Freshman

Campus Dining: Campus food can be pretty greasy and it is very easy for the Freshman 15 to become a reality.

2 College Junior

Facilities: Athletics, the student center, and the dining hall are the three major areas on campus that need improvement. We have a new fitness center, but the main gym and the track and field need some improvement. The dining hall sucks! There are very few and poor vegetarian studies. The student center is okay, but no one can hang out there really because of all of the offices.

2 College Junior

Campus Strictness: Our campus isn't very strict. The only thing that our campus is pretty strict about is the honor code.

2 College Junior

Nightlife: You can always find something if you really want to, but you actually have to try and find things to do.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: Public safety is fine, but health services suck. The health center has great mental health resources, but otherwise they are unreliable.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: I love my school, but like any school it has its ups and downs. I have gained really great friends and made fun memories, but sometimes being here can be a drag. People often complain about dumb things and the negativity sometimes affect the social atmosphere.

4 College Junior

Majors: There's a wide variety of majors to choose from and you can even create your own major.

Off-Campus Housing: I haven't had much experience with off campus housing except for our school owned apartments. The apartments are expensive and personally I don't think they're worth living in.

2 College Junior

Drug Safety: If people do drugs, which I'm sure they do, no one really knows about it. Alcohol is much more widely used though. Our school does a lot of alcohol awareness and safety training.

3 College Junior

Weather: The weather is really weird sometimes, but overall nice.

2 College Junior

Campus Housing: Things are always breaking in the dorms.

4 College Junior

Academics: Academics are amazing, I am always challenged

3 College Junior

Academics: Classes are great, but registration is awful

2 College Junior

Guys & Girls: We only have girls and they're okay. Kind of ugly

2 College Junior

Scholarships: Financial aid is okay, but a constant battle

2 College Junior

Parking: Parking is okay, but it's too expensive.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: I have always wanted to attend a diverse school. Agnes Scott College has a variety of races and ethnicities with a mass of different cultures. Diversity also plays into different organizations. For example, the Muslim Student Association and International Student Association. No culture or identity is left out. Although the school is diverse, it feels united. So, we all are one and incorporate that its great to embrace being unique.

Academics: My high school courses have helped me in my academics at Agnes Scott College. For example, my Spanish and Economics classes at high school have somewhat prepared me for college. One thing about ASC is professors challenge women to think deeply, which is apart of the school's mission statement. Furthermore, unlike my high school, the tutoring hours are very flexible for me, and I feel comfortable with asking for help. Lastly, the most precious thing about attending a Liberal Arts school is the freedom and pace of taking any course, and a student can even establish her own course. When it comes to ASC, I do not feel rushed. Unlike public universities and colleges, my professors know me by name not number/letter.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: This is at my first-year at Agnes Scott College. My experience so far as been fun and fantastic. I have to admit that the first few weeks felt overwhelming and so strange, but I have absolutely enjoyed it. One tradition I loved was Black Cat, especially the formal. To found out my class was in 3rd place was not shocking, but somewhat disappointing. Overall, I am getting accustomed to my classes and my peers. There are a immense amount of resources available! I can say that I love ASC!

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.
