4 College Freshman

Local Area: Agnes Scott is located near the vibrant Decatur neighborhood. There are many shops and cafes nearby, and public transportation to other Atlanta areas is within walking distance. The school provides a shuttle for different student body activities that are off-campus.

5 College Freshman

Parking: The parking is safe and convenient. The parking fee is substantially less expensive than other universities in town.

3 College Freshman

Transportation: MARTA is walking distance; everything's much nearer and more convenient by car. Frequent transportation may get costly. Other services are provided (i.e zip cars).

4 College Freshman

Majors: Not as many diverse majors than a much larger university, but still very accommodating. The main/most popular majors are available; for the not so much, it wouldn't hurt to ask.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: Depends on the night; night life on weekends are scarce on campus, but they're plenty off campus. Transportation and money are needed. On weekdays, it can vary; knowing the right people helps. They're a couple parties but, for the most part, parties are held elsewhere. The main ones are Black Cat and Red Light, Green Light.

3 College Junior

Majors: I wish there was more structure in the public health major, but sense it is so new its kind of a guinea pig major. If I could do it all over I would studied harder and stayed a biology major. When I graduate I would like to go to dental school and become an orthodontist, but everyone needs an orthodontist so hopefully i have ease finding a job.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Me personally, I hate living on campus. Girls on campus are nasty. They do not clean up after themselves and that is my pet peeve. I prefer living in the campus apartments, Avery glen. There is not communal bathrooms and I can cook my own food. If you were to live in the dorms, live in a dorm with air i.e. Winship, Walters, Inman, or Hopkins. Rebekah and Main have bigger rooms but they have not air so its sooooooo hot.

3 College Junior

Academics: The public health major is a new program. With that being said we have to take 52 credits but many classes are only offered once a year or even every other year. The perk to my major is that my school has a partnership with the CDC so every summer one to three students have a paid internship there. For the most part the workload is pretty easy as long as you don't procrastinate

4 College Junior

Parking: Parking is amazing. I currently do not have a car but a parking permit is only 100 for the entire year. there are parking lots near all the classroom buildings just get on campus at least 10-15 minutes before class starts so you are not late. Parking is completely free for guests, but I would recommend not parking in the main loop during the week.

4 College Junior

Academics: The academics are very vigorous, but they are design to prepare for like after Agnes. All professors are very helpful if you are struggle and every department has tutors or a learning center so students can get extra help. Agnes also has numerous programs design to keep students on track and to make sure they have plans after they graduate.

4 College Junior

Athletics: We offer 6 varsity sports - Basketball, Lacrosse, Soccer, Softball, Tennis and Volleyball. Our athletes work and train hard and usually perform very well and can be guarantted to always give their best. Tennis and basketball are our strongest areas. One of our tennis players has been the Great South Athletic Champion 4 years running. We also have 2 PE requirements for graduation. You may opt to do something athletic or dances classes instead. We have great facilities, 2 gyms, one especially equipped for athletic needs. We even have our own cheer song.

5 College Junior

Drug Safety: In an effort to honor Georgia State Law as well as our Honor Code which dates back to almost a century and is held in high regard on campus, drug usage is not tolerated (or is it prominent on campus). Additionally, our students are not permittedto possess alcohol if under the age of 21 years old. If a resident of over 21 years is in possession of it and has a roommate under that age, then the quantity must clearly be for the consumption of one person, that is, the legally qualified one. Our resident assistants work with Public Safety and the Office of Resident Life to uphold these ideals. Violators are brought before Judicial Board or Honor Court, both comprising of specially trained students, and punishment is issued accordingly.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: The Department of Public Safety and the Wellness Center are valuable resources on campus that work endlessly to ensure students' safety and well being. These individuals are also pretty well known and familiar with students, so there really is close interaction as fostered by our small size.

5 College Junior

Academics: At Agnes Scott, the academics attempt to be well rounded and very instructive. We are reading and writing intensive and some of the most in depth conversations arise in the dorms, in the Dining Hall over lunch and in the classrooms. Never a dull moment.

4 College Junior

Weather: This is Atlanta, so the weather generally tends to be warm, but also tends to be unpredictable. You may dress for more chilly waether this morning, head into class and when you come out the place is really warm, and vice-versa. Generally though, the weather is conducive to laying out on our grass and reading a book, enjoying the warmth, surfing the web (our campus and the City of Decatur has wifi access), or tanning. I've only ever seen it snow once here and when compared to the Northeast, we ecape pretty lightly.

5 College Junior

Academics: The academics offered at Agnes Scott College is often ranked as rigorous. We offer approximately 34 majors and 31 minors, and as liberal arts students we receive a well- rounded education. Additionally, our curriculum emphasizes proficiency in writing and speaking, as reflected in our on-campus resources such as the Center for Speaking and Writing. This is perhaps our most widely utilized center. The faculty and staff also strive to reinforce our living and learning experience going hand in hand. We therefore try to house students within the same First Year Seminar (FYS) on the same dorm floor, and our newest housing option for upper classwomen is the Environmental Theme House where residents undertake to live environmentally friendly and host events to educate the campus population to do live likewise. At Agnes Scott College, apart from rigorous academics we also aim to emphasize wellness as one of our pillars. Our Wellness Center therefore advises on nutritional well being and offers counselling and massage therapy. We also offer a wide array of extracurricular activities that fosters building leadership skills and strong friendships.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Campus Beauty – Decatur has the most amazing people. Agnes Scott is beautiful the campus is small yet very accommodating.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: The financial aid office can be very helpful but at the same time i think that taking students out of their classes for a balance less than 10,000 is harsh considering more than half is aid off

4 College Sophomore

Technology: Printing on Campus – Printing on campus can be done in the library but for after hours the writing center is always open and has an awesome computer lab. Agnes Scott witting center also has helpers and great computer speed.

1 College Junior

Drug Safety: I have never seen someone do drugs at Agnes. I'm sure it exists but I have never seen or heard someone talk about doing drugs.

4 College Junior

Parking: There are plenty of spots and it's pretty cheap ($100) for a whole year. During the week is busier than the weekend but still there is ample parking.

5 College Freshman

Campus Food: Eating Off Campus Isn't Necessary, but Available If You Want – Diverse options to choose from
People of varying eating habits/taste will be satisfied
All you can eat
Two sources of nutrition (main eating area and Molly's, an ASC restaurant/snack bar kind of)

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.
