4 College Senior

Overall Experience: It's a great school where you can truly grow into the optimal version of yourself.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: This is getting better!

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: I definitely feel safe at Agnes Scott and I know they will help in anyway they can if something happens off campus.

4 College Senior

Campus Housing: It's a great place to live as a student and they are planning lots of renovation for the halls that need to be updated.

1 College Senior

Greek Life: We don't have Greek life.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: I love it academically, but socially it can be a little different than the average college. I feel like I will thrive when I graduate though and that is what is important.

3 College Senior

Athletics: If you are not an athlete, you don't really do much with athletics.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Most of the time it's good. Some resident halls don't have A/C due to age, but the school is working on this. Wi-Fi can be spotty sometimes. Bathrooms and kitchenettes are generally kept clean; cleanliness drops on the weekends when custodial staff don't come in, and students don't always clean up after themselves in common areas.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Overall, athletes are nice, friendly students, and coaches and other athletic staff are generally approachable and easy to talk to. Most student-athletes juggle school and sports fairly well. Academic success is always given priority over athletic success.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: One thing that I love about Agnes is that you really feel inspired to try something different while you're here. Our gen ed requirements are minimal, which allows you to broaden your horizons, and take classes that at other schools you might not have gotten the chance to do. The professors are also very welcoming, and are understanding if you are taking something because it is for your major, or if you're taking it to see how you enjoy the subject.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: On any given day, you can look in your inbox and see some kind of email related to job fairs or internships or different programs being hosted at the school. My personal study (music and theatre) just by nature doesn't really lend to a whole lot of open opportunities, but I am still able to make connections with my professors that could eventually lead to job possibilities.

2 College Freshman

Campus Housing: In terms of being close to your classes, it can't be better. But first year housing is a nightmare. The bathrooms (particularly the showers) are not well maintained. The hot water is constantly going out, and the tiles and paint have been getting worse and worse over time. Also, the washer-dryer situation in Winship is horrendous, we are constantly having to go to the other dorm buildings to finish our laundry. The only nice dorm building is Campbell, but that has very few suits, and is far too expensive for most to afford. Main, Inman, and Rebekah to not have proper heating/AC situations, and lack a proper kitchen.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Sports are not a huge part of campus life at Agnes. We do have a few varsity teams, but to me it feels like only fellow athletes are involved with the going ons of other sports teams.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I don't think I could ever find a college I like better than Agnes. I'm sure there are better job opportunities for theatre and music majors at bigger schools in bigger cities, but the overall environment and the amazing level of support I receive at Agnes is unlike any other. The level of diversity at such a small school is a wonderful change from my high school, and I can make honest connections with my professors, and I am given amazing flexibility to explore different paths to study, and I don't feel like I'm wasting my time taking tons of gen eds.

Diversity: It's the most diverse college in Georgia and the SE

Academics: The academics are intense due to the small classes and the interaction with the professors. The classes are filled with rich discussion and debate. The professors encourage. The advisement process is great as the professors tailor requirements around the student's goals.

Health & Safety: The safety department treats each female student as each student is their daughter. That's why the safety is so good.

Overall Experience: I love ASC! The professors empower and engage the students to go beyond their comfort zone. No one has never told me no when I ask to try new things or approaches. All my professors have been great. We have become friends.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The alumni network is called the Black Ring Mafia. These ladies are very active and supportive in helping students. They are great. In my interactions, these ladies have been very helpful. The career planning and placement office is very hard working. We are constantly given info about opportunities.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Old spacious dorms unlike the modern suites at the larges colleges in the area

1 College Junior

Greek Life: We have no greek life unless a student wants to join at either Ga Tech or Emory

3 College Junior

Athletics: Athletics are valued as a part of the education process.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Best college for educating and developing female leaders. Best fit for me!

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love the fact that my school is very small and the campus is easily accessible. It only takes me five minutes to get to each class and I'm very happy that this gives me a chance to get some extra sleep. I also like the personal attention I receive from professors and the fact that it is easy for me to build connections and stand out among everyone else. I also enjoy the fact that my school is very quiet and allows me to focus on my studies. Even though this school is not for everyone, if I could go through the college application process again, I would make the same choice. I think this school is a great fit for me, since it allows me to focus on classes during the week and explore a great city - Atlanta - on the weekends.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Agnes is an interesting environment, it takes a certain type of student to succeed here. The school itself is great, but learning to coexist with the other students is normally hard, and at Agnes, it certainly isn't a cake walk.

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.
