  • I am a current student here

    I sincerely wish that I lived further away from Agnes Scott, so my parents would require me to go home every weekend. There are a lot of things to do, needless to say, and there is at least a fun event or two going on every month. Black Cat week was amazing, and I'm sure you prospectives will think the same when you come to it.

    Agnes is located just 10 minutes from Atlanta, so its not uncommon for us to go spend our weekend over there but Decatur also has a lot to offer. Agnes is also really good about the events we have on campus, whether its a block party, cultural events or guest speakers. And I also feel very safe on campus (which is beautiful; it kind of has a Harry Potter feel to it).

    I absolutely love Agnes!! At first I wasn't sure about an all women's college but it was a great choice for me. The campus is beautiful, the dorms are amazing, the people are fantastic and it seems that everyone is happy to be there. There are lots of activities off and on campus so you never have to be bored. Having Atlanta so close is really great; there is never a lack of stores, restaurants, and attractions!

  • I am researching this school and have not visited the campus

    I always wanted to go a women's college when i grow ever since and i know my experiences will change more than I have at my school experiences here. Plus, I saw the video in the website that holds loads of information that made me realized that this kind of college would be the perfect college for me till I graduate from high school.
