3 College Freshman

Campus Food: The food is better than at some colleges I visited, but it's still not fabulous. It's definitely generic to fit everyone's dietary needs. The soft-serve machine almost never works. Weekend food is horrendous, and I usually can never really eat much then because the options are very limited and not appetizing at all. Breakfast and lunch are typically good, and dinner is very hit or miss.

Campus Housing: Everyone's very friendly, and the Residence Life staff is very helpful. The bathrooms are generally clean when considering how many women are using them daily, and the halls themselves are typically clean. The rooms are pretty big for dorm rooms, and my hall mates are generally friendly. The kitchen is rather small, and our microwave didn't work at the beginning of the year. However, the microwave has been replaced and is working fine. The fridge/freezer could use some help with space issues, but that's all dependent on the residents.

Health & Safety: I think it's pretty safe as a campus because of the blue columns all around campus that students can use to ask for help.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I haven't experienced it, then I can't judge it. A big percentage of the students live on campus

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: Not perfect, but still good. I honestly think that students rely more on scholarships from other associations.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I just can't judge it because I don't know any Greek.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Many people like it. The problem is that some students do not like walking in the dark.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I like living at Agnes Scott College a lot. Even though the dorms are not the coolest thing ever, the social atmosphere is even better than I was expecting.

Scholarships: I mean of course I wish i was given more money, but the aid was reflective of what I can pay.

Administration: The Honor Code here is pretty much followed by everyone, but I worry there will be one person to break it so I don't trust it's effectiveness.

Academics: I love the psychology program at Agnes Scott!! All of the professors are not only wonderful teachers, but interesting as well.

Academics: Popular study areas are in the dorm rooms, the library (mainly in the study carrels and private group study rooms), Mollie's, the Cyber Café, and the Luchsinger lounge.

Off-Campus Housing: There are plenty of apartments available for rent in the Decatur area. Closest to Agnes Scott are the Avery Glen apartments, which run about 700-900/month if you're not living there through the school's housing lottery system.

Party Scene: Sometimes students get too drunk and can cause a scene. Luckily our Public Safety officers handle the situation quickly and efficiently. Black Cat and Red Light Green Light are the most popular parties on campus.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: I think the dorms are nice, but for $10,000 a year, they're not nice enough. I understand the dorms are unique because they've been around for decades, but updates need to be made! Students should not be charged this much money when they can't even get on an elevator without it getting stuck between floors.

Campus Food: Our food isn't terrible, but they need to add more flavor to it! I think Agnes caters too much to vegetarian and vegan options, as well as gluten-free. I understand that people don't eat certain foods, but it's annoying when you think something will taste good, but instead, it's flavorless. Vegetable options need to be expanded and more menu items need to be added! WHOEVER COOKS THE GRITS ON SATURDAY MORNINGS SHOULD BE THE ONLY PERSON ALLOWED TO COOK THEM DURING THE WEEK.

Party Scene: If you don't have a car or if you don't know anyone with a car, nightlife may be difficult. MARTA runs up until 1 or 2 in the morning, but most parties don't end until 3 or 4 in the morning. Even if you decide to ride MARTA to a party, it can be inconvenient because the train may be late or it may be packed with people, especially if there's an event going on. Taxis are available, but they can be expensive. If you do have a car or if you know someone with a car, nightlife may be much better. I have my own car, so I'm able to drive to different campuses, such as Clark Atlanta University, Georgia Tech, and Morehouse College. These schools (and others) have great parties, but they can get boring once you've been to many of them. I don't drink alcohol (and I'm not of age), so I don't know much about drink prices. Clubs are around Atlanta as well, such as Cream Ultra Lounge, Mansion Elan and Opera Nightclub, but they have age restrictions, so please check!

Campus Quality: I love our library; however, I think the study spaces should be more publicized for students who don't typically access the library. Our campus is beautiful, but I think the school focuses too much on the scenery (i.e. our grass) more than fixing broken toilets or WIFI.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: Campus crime isn't as prevalent as other campuses, but I think students need to be more careful on who they allow in the dorms. Campus security cannot prevent theft and other crimes if you are allowing anyone and everyone into the dorms.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: The professors are very well versed in their field of teaching and they have a lot of patience. The professors also have good connections if you want a job or internship in the future.

Academics: The teachers are very helpful and the office hours that they hold are very convinient.The workload is not horrible if you know how to study, and if you don't know how to study the staff is very helpful with developing those skills.

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.
