College Freshman

Nightlife: Idk i never go out

4 College Freshman

Nightlife: You just have to get out there. I personally go to tech alot

3 College Freshman

Nightlife: I do not go off campus at the night for parties

2 College Sophomore

Nightlife: There are a total of 3 notable on-campus parties throughout the whole year. To party, a student will more likely have to get off campus and make their own fun. Transportation is annoying whether you have a car or not; nothing is close by or convenient.

4 College Sophomore

Nightlife: MARTA takes you into downtown Atlanta as well as to the neighboring schools, so finding something to do is not that difficult, you just have to go out and take the time to get there.

Agnes's nightlife and party scene isn't exactly all that existent. Decatur doesn't have a party scene, but it does have wonderful restaurant and bar life. Decatur is a fairly quiet place that is in close proximity to Atlanta, so there are some clubbing options, if that's what you like to do. Most women at Agnes prefer restaurant and bar hopping to clubbing. The bars in the Decatur area are within walking distance to the school, but are a bit pricey, depending on where you go. Twain's, for example, isn't too affordable for college students, but Taco Mac is the cheapest place to get a drink and tapas. Trackside Tavern is also a cheap place to get a drink and a typical haunt for Agnes students. Trackside is a two-minute walk from the school, a seedy hole-in-the-wall that offers drinks, billiards, darts, and a sports bar. It's popular with Agnes students because of its price and atmosphere.

There are a lot of events on campus that happen year-round. Each Friday, Programming Board holds an event called "TGIF" where upperclasswomen are served drinks, and lowerclasswomen are able to party and socialize. Decatur is a great place for both people of drinking age as well as underage people. Underage people like to go into Decatur and walk around the shops and hang out at the local restaurants and cafés. Starbucks, Java Monkey, and Yogurt Tap are popular haunts for underage students. These places offer a fun, chill atmosphere that welcomes families, students, and intellectuals. Decatur has a little bit of everything for everyone.
