College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I live on campus and have no interest in living off campus while attending, so I have never had to actively figure out how living off-campus works.

Off-Campus Dining: The food out in town is pretty good, but there are some expensive places. However, I typically choose to dine on campus since it's already been paid for.

Administration: Our campus is very liberal with its rules, but we are very strict about the Honor Code and our general housing rules involving noise and underage drinking.

Scholarships: I had a very easy process. My financial aid went through quickly and without too many issues. It was very well explained to me by my admissions counselor. My admissions counselor was very informed and always had an answer if I had a question.

College Freshman

Party Scene: We never really have our own parties. We mostly go to other campuses since ours is very small. We do have a few during the year though. I'm not a social person, so I'm never in the know and never attend if I do know of one being held on campus.

Campus Food: The food is better than at some colleges I visited, but it's still not fabulous. It's definitely generic to fit everyone's dietary needs. The soft-serve machine almost never works. Weekend food is horrendous, and I usually can never really eat much then because the options are very limited and not appetizing at all. Breakfast and lunch are typically good, and dinner is very hit or miss.

Campus Housing: Everyone's very friendly, and the Residence Life staff is very helpful. The bathrooms are generally clean when considering how many women are using them daily, and the halls themselves are typically clean. The rooms are pretty big for dorm rooms, and my hall mates are generally friendly. The kitchen is rather small, and our microwave didn't work at the beginning of the year. However, the microwave has been replaced and is working fine. The fridge/freezer could use some help with space issues, but that's all dependent on the residents.

Health & Safety: I think it's pretty safe as a campus because of the blue columns all around campus that students can use to ask for help.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I haven't experienced it, then I can't judge it. A big percentage of the students live on campus

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: Not perfect, but still good. I honestly think that students rely more on scholarships from other associations.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I just can't judge it because I don't know any Greek.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Many people like it. The problem is that some students do not like walking in the dark.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I like living at Agnes Scott College a lot. Even though the dorms are not the coolest thing ever, the social atmosphere is even better than I was expecting.

Athletics: Some people like it, but I'm not into it.

Scholarships: I mean of course I wish i was given more money, but the aid was reflective of what I can pay.

Off-Campus Dining: The cities of Decatur and Atlanta offer so much good food.

Administration: The Honor Code here is pretty much followed by everyone, but I worry there will be one person to break it so I don't trust it's effectiveness.

4 College Senior

Academics: I love the psychology program at Agnes Scott!! All of the professors are not only wonderful teachers, but interesting as well.

Academics: Popular study areas are in the dorm rooms, the library (mainly in the study carrels and private group study rooms), Mollie's, the Cyber Café, and the Luchsinger lounge.

Off-Campus Housing: There are plenty of apartments available for rent in the Decatur area. Closest to Agnes Scott are the Avery Glen apartments, which run about 700-900/month if you're not living there through the school's housing lottery system.

Party Scene: Sometimes students get too drunk and can cause a scene. Luckily our Public Safety officers handle the situation quickly and efficiently. Black Cat and Red Light Green Light are the most popular parties on campus.

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.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
