My time at Agnes Scott College was brief yet challenging. Some professors go out of their way to help you understand the material. Other professors, not so much. The campus is VERY diverse. There are a lot of International students and student of different backgrounds. The college campus is beautiful and kept up-to-par. However, while attending, I felt like I did not belong there. Most times I did not feel welcomed. When considering Agnes, understand that you have to reach out in order to receive. Find the right group of friends and you should be fine. P.S. Agnes is EXPENSIVE! But, it is a challenging school academically and is globally recognized.

Diverse and Exclusive – Agnes Scott is extremely diverse in some ways more than others. For example, ethnically, there are a lot of cultures represented amongst international students--and this is truly the only diversity you can count on. Almost everyone is liberal and EVERYONE is FEMALE. I found myself on the &quot;outside&quot; of many social groups because I am just a white, straight female and most students classify themselves as &quot;gay&quot; or &quot;christian&quot; or &quot;a member of such-and-such club/group&quot;. Look no further than the Agnes Scott Dining Hall. The exclusive rich girls (colonnade club) hang with other exclusive rich girls, the asians stick together, the black girls often sit in groups, the lesbians usually band together in various love triangles, the christian girls often sit away from everyone else to pray for them. It's outrageously polarized and everyone is ready to be offended at the drop of a hat. If you go to Agnes Scott, expect to make a very small group of friends (if you're lucky!) and rarely venture outside of that group. This is not necessarily a positive thing because you will likely form your group early on and if you have issues with them down the road, other groups have already formed and they won't want to let you &quot;in&quot;. Ask yourself if that cattiness and exclusivity sounds like a &quot;diverse and honorable&quot; experience to you!

Beautiful Green Campus! It's a small campus, so the facilities aren't mind-blowing--but they are appropriate for the college. The library has tons of useful manuscripts for research as well as GALILEO, the Student Center has a nice mini-workout room, the gym is decent-sized, and the academic buildings are all up-to-date technology-wise with wireless access. Parking on campus sucks, but since it's such a small campus walking isn't really an issue.

The campus itself is beautiful, with plenty of green-space and historic buildings, and always a treat to walk through, no matter how long you've been a resident Scottie. And the whole campus is geared towards being sustainable, though the grass could probably be fertilized less...
