4 College Sophomore

Academics: I am a Psychology Major and it is the most popular major on campus. The professors in this department are passionate and knowledgeable. The workload isn't too bad. It challenges you to think about what is learned and how to apply it outside of class. They are very helpful in finding internships/ job opportunities for students.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: The academics here can be rigorous. Each professor is very passionate about their discipline of study, so taking classes with professors with the same passion as you is exciting. The workload depends on which classes you are taking. Popular study places are in the library, the science building, or in our student center.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Agnes Scott is located in the city of Decatur which is 10 mins away from Atlanta. There are so many spots from sushi, Mexican, Asian, American, etc. Whatever food you like sure enough a place you will like isn't more than 15 mins away.

1 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: There is only one apartment that is off campus. If you want to live off campus and not in that apartment its pretty hard to do so. Decatur is pretty expensive and Agnes does not allow it.

4 College Freshman

Parking: Agnes has a lot of parking. Parking is pretty cheap compared to other schools. If you do not want to pay the $100 per year to park there are places close to campus to park.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I have never felt unsafe unless there is a function that is open to anyone. Agnes is pretty secluded so no one really bothers to do anything.

5 College Junior

Diversity: The college is very big on celebrating diversity with events and campus organizations. For such a small college, there are a significant number of international students, as well as overall racial diversity and a noticeable queer community on campus.

1 College Junior

Party Scene: There is no nightlife at Agnes Scott. Everyone who enjoys partying usually ends up at one of the other schools nearby-- Georgia Tech, Morehouse, etc.

4 College Junior

Academics: The classes are intimate, professors are very intelligent and the college environment is heavily focused on academics. However, sometimes I feel there is too much emphasis on class discussion/critical thinking-- both are excellent qualities, but it would be beneficial to have a little more balance in the classroom environment

5 College Freshman

Academics: The academics are very rigorous at Agnes, this school will leave you more than prepared for the real world! In Atalanta especially, all the businesses know that any girl form Agnes is a hardworking, well mannered , and perfect for any task!

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Because Agnes is an all girls school, there aren't as many men around. But it is not difficult to find men through activities, or classes and things. I have been in a long term relationship since I started Agnes, so when I am on campus I generally am not looking for other men.
Something else to note, because it is an all girls school, Agnes has a higher than average lesbian population and people of other sexual orientations. So if you are not looking for men, you will not have a problem fitting in.
No matter the sexual orientation, everyone at Agnes is wonderful, hard working, and friendly. It is a great environment for anyone.

Administration: Agnes has a very strict Honor Code, it is not taken lightly. Each person is expected to behave, act responsibly, and up hold the great reputation of the school. Because Agnes is so small, they are able to select only people they think will follow the Honor Code. As result, there is little need for rules, police, or strictness. There are always police around, but that is just to ensure safety of the young female students and to make sure you feel comfortable. Agnes is a very friendly school, unless you break the Honor Code.

5 College Junior

Diversity: Is there an A+++ option? Agnes Scott is a majority minority school, meaning that over 50% of the college is composed of people of color and international students. There is also a spiritual diversity on campus, with all kinds of clubs-- Daughters of Gaia, Muslim Student Association, NewLife, Baptist Campus Ministry, etc. present around the historically Presbyterian campus. There are people of all economic backgrounds, and plenty of non-traditional students (24+) who are returning for their degrees. Agnes has recently instituted a policy that any female-identified student is welcome at the college, regardless of sex assigned at birth. There is a vibrant LGBTQIA community on campus, and health resources available to people of all sexualities and gender identities. While there are some things to improve on, the overwhelming amount of diversity on campus truly makes Agnes Scott College stand apart in its region and in its class of institution.

Parking: There's a parking deck on one side of campus that is generally pretty open (and free for visitors!). A parking decal for students is fairly reasonable, as far as I can tell (I don't drive a car, I have a scooter), and allows parking access to all student lots on campus. Compared to other schools, Agnes parking is actually very accessible and close to mostly everything the school can offer.

5 College Junior

Guys & Girls: For the most part, Agnes Scott College attracts plenty of great people, people who are great beyond just the bounds of perception of beauty. Athletes, nerds, musicians, every type of person you can imagine comes to Agnes Scott and is able to participate in the community. As Agnes is a women's college, it accepts all female-identified individuals (regardless of sex assigned at birth), is a safe space for those who may identify as trans- or gender-nonconforming, and seeks to stay true to the intent of its founders to provide a safe learning environment for ALL of its students. With that intent in mind, there is no one way to categorize Agnes Scott Scotties. Feisty, fierce, and fabulous are some words that come to mind, but we don't really hold with traditional standards of beauty here. You'll find that Scotties rely on their brains as well as their beauty to get ahead at Agnes Scott. As cheesy as it sounds, there isn't one type of beauty or charm at Agnes Scott. It's the mix of what everyone brings to the college that makes the campus community beautiful.

Weather: There isn't much you can do about the Georgia weather (if you don't like it, don't worry- just wait five minutes and it'll change), but weather (really just rain) on this size of a campus doesn't really put a damper (ba-dum-TSS) on activities or having fun around campus. There are places to hang out in the residence halls and campus buildings, and there's also entertainment just down the street in downtown Decatur.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: ASC is one of the safest places in the world! I have never felt unsafe.

3 College Junior

Diversity: this campus is very accepting and will make you feel welcomed n matter your race, religion, sexual identity, etc.

2 College Junior

Parking: So many student on campus have cars so getting the perfect spot is not ideal. With that being said, there is always a spot in the parking deck and since the campus isn't that huge you won't have to walk that far from the parking deck to your destination.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are plenty of restaurants and cafes nearby with reasonable prices on a student budget that are within waking distance from campus. However, if you have late night cravings (9pm-later), its harder to find places to eat and delivery is usually your best option.

4 College Freshman

Parking: There's plenty of parking spaces but the spots nearby are taken up quickly but the other ones aren't that much of a walk.

4 College Sophomore

Parking: plenty of parking, but spaces closer to campus are filled up quickly.

1 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: students are only allowed to live off campus with parents or husbands.

5 College Freshman

Academics: The professors at the school are top-notch and the smaller class sizes are conducive to learning and being able to interact with professors and engage in class discussions. The curriculum and workload can be very difficult, but there are plenty of resources, such as tutors, to help. The only drawback about the registration process is that there are a limited number of classes due to the small size of the school, so it can be difficult to plan your schedule.

4 College Freshman

Majors: I am very happy with my program, and would definitely make the same choice to attend if I had to do it over. I am planning to get a dual degree in nursing from Agnes Scott and Emory and I feel a degree from these schools will be advantageous in getting a good job after graduation.

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.
