Local Area: Great City! Decatur is really nice as far as atmosphere everything is so closes. The shopping and dining is really nice, It's a lot of artistic stuff around. It's really nice to hang out and get some yogurt before studying.

Guys & Girls: Only Girls School – Nothing to say about boys... Girls go to Georgia Tech or Emory or Georgia State to meet boys. Lots of events are held on campus to meet boys.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Decent Food – The food options at Agnes Scott College is decent, there are only two options, the dining hall and a fast food/grill, because it is such a small college. As a vegetarian the option can be very limited, however the college is always making improvements that are visible, for example there were requests for whole wheat pancakes and soon after it was granted

Campus Quality: The campus of Agnes Scott is aesthetically pleasing to say the least. The grass is green all year long, you often forget what season it is. The buildings are mixed old and new, but the new buildings are integrated flawlessly with the old buildings. The student center is newly renovated and makes resources such as the book store and the post office easily accessible to students. The library is perfect for studying and napping in the late afternoon when the setting sun comes in through large windows in the Reading Room, its my favorite place to write essays.

5 College Student

Campus Quality: The students are really driven and work hard towards their goals. There is no gender competition because it's a girls school, but there are still oppurtunities to meet boys. It's a beautiful campus that you enjoy walking aroung in just for fun. Everyone is nice and no one will steal stuff if you leave it there.

3 College Student

Diversity: Lots of Different Girls – The school is pretty diverse with many different races and religions.

5 College Freshman

Campus Quality: It is an all women's college which allows for women to open up and truly find the strong woman that lies within them to overcome difficult challenges of our times.

5 College Freshman

Academics: A lot of one on one time with the professors who are there for you

Local Area: Decatur is a lovely little town, with a beautiful downtown district that's within walking distance. There are many restaurants and stores and easy access to MARTA. Agnes Scott has a good relationship with Decatur and is a huge part of the local culture, especially the Decatur Book Festival. If I had one complaint, it would be that it's a very quiet area. But it is a nice contrast to the busyness of Atlanta.

Off-Campus Dining: Decatur Eateries – I absolutely love Decatur. Why? It's cute, primarily safe, rock throwing distance from ATL, and has GREAT places to eat. Leons, Brickstore, Cakes & Ale, and Farm Burger. Endless amounts of cool little restaurants with amazing eats.

Weather: Humid in the summer, perfect in the fall, and cold in the winter. Sounds normal right?

3 Recent Alumnus

Campus Food: 2 Options – The dinning hall is exciting for the first year, after that you figure out its schedule and the meal rotations. There are some excellent meals prepared, some mediocre meals, and some terrible meals. If you are a picky eater, you can always be satisfied by the constant option of pizza and cereal. Magic Sandwhich day (fresh tomato and mozzerella) is one of the most popular days in the dinning hall. Wednesdays are always comfort food, and it is unhealthy, but DELICIOUS. The mac'n'cheese, the chicken, the greens, will leave you very happy and full.

3 College Freshman

Weather: the weather is quite bi polar with winds to summer heat to cold rain in a single day.

2 College Freshman

Party Scene: On the MARTA Bus – there is little to no nightlife unless you love movie nights with your friends. However there are plenty of school within a train ride which will gladly accommodate girls from Agnes Scott

1 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Evans Dining Hall Vs Mollies – Evans dining hall is pitiful. Never consistent in the amount of for, this place is a last recruit for most students. The food itself, is always too salty and the health options are never actually tasteful.

5 College Freshman

Academics: Professors are truly passionate about what they teach. The professors here are amazing. They aren't the kind who are only interested in their own research projects and only teach because they have to. They genuinely care about their students and are always open to provide help when needed. All of my professors are great at linking the material we learn in class to the real world. The classes here teach you to think outside the box and look at things in all manners: pragmatically creatively, and reflectively. I couldn't have asked for a better education.

Local Area: Decatur Is Pretty Fantastic – What's great about Agnes Scott is that it's right in Decatur. Decatur is a lovely neighborhood with the right amount of cozy charm of a suburb mixed with so many interesting shops and restaurants. Everything in Decatur is within walking distance which is especially good if you're like me and don't have a license (let alone a car). Decatur is a small enough area where you won't get lost and after a few weeks streets become recognizable and you can pretty much find your way around with some basic knowledge. There's the Cliff bus station to get to Emory University and MARTA to get to Atlanta. If you go into a store and say you're from Agnes Scott there's bound to be someone who either went here, or knows someone who went here, or just appreciates the warm atmosphere Agnes Scott has to offer.

Diversity: A Community of Acceptance – People on-campus are very accepting of people of differing sexual orientations. There are many on-campus clubs for people of different ethnic/racial backgrounds, and I think we have multiple LGBT groups on campus. All of these groups have widespread participation on campus.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: Difficult, but Rewarding – There are few easy A's at Agnes Scott College. Even the entry level classes encourage you to think deeply. I came in expecting to coast through those classes like I did in high school, but I have found that to continue to receive A's in classes, I had to meet with professors and go to the free tutoring offered on campus. All of the professors are willing to schedule time to meet with you and the tutors in the Math and Science learning center and the writing center are also very helpful. The school holds itself to a high moral standard, with an honor code that allows professors to give take-home tests, and allows us to self-schedule finals. I do wish we had more sections of courses to choose from for scheduling, but that is small-college life.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: HUGE Rooms – Agnes Scott is known for its large dorm rooms. As a freshman, you'll have a walk-in closet with shelving, and a decent-sized room. As an upperclassman you'll have several options, although the rooms are all a bit larger than those for freshmen--plenty of space for a table or a couch. The only drawback is that the upperclassman dorms don't all have air conditioning, and sound travels a bit in these old buildings!

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Decatur Dining – Decatur is home to some pretty unique restaurants! Within walking distance is a noodle shop, Japanese restaurant, two Thai restaurants, several diners, and a pizza place. If you have a car or friend who can drive and are eating on a budget, I suggest Dekalb Farmer's Market. You pay by the pound for food, and it has a variety of ethnic and homestyle foods. The catch: They only accept cash!

3 College Freshman

Weather: Yesterday it was 65 and sun-shining; today it was 35, windy and hazy. The weather is very inconsistent but luckily we have a very small campus and do not have to walk very far to classes.

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.
