Very diverse ethnic backgrounds. High acceptance and tolerance of others regarding religion and sexual orientation. Mostly Democratic/liberal students in my opinion.

The social atmosphere is okay, but because the campus is so small, you often find yourself having to see the same people everyday,and you can't really avoid seeing people that you might feel awkward around after a while. Please consider the "close community" aspect of this school before you come here because it can ultimately shape your academic performance, especially in a negative way if you don't like being in small social environments.

Sometimes parking is hard to find, or you may have to park farther than usual. Other than that, it's not bad.

All dorms are spacious. The best option is apparently Inman, and lofts are available. There's no worst option, but upperclassmen can be placed in freshmen dorms if their applications/payment is turned in late. The people on each floor determines the social atmosphere. It's pretty costly, and the housing process is simple.
College Sophomore 2013-05-14T20:51:01Z
There's visibility among upperclassmen, and very strict rules for those who are under-aged. Usage is quite a bit. There's no peer pressure and policy enforcement is reasonable.

We are a very diverse institution. It is a very safe environment which is a lot of the draw for people to attend. You may think that there are only three type of genders but you are wrong. You may think that there are only three sexuallites but you will also be wrong. Agnes students are not afraid of correcting your political correctness. Watch yourself or you will be on the wrong end of an argument you didn't even know you were a part of.

Agnes is close to downtown Decatur, which has many places to dine out but it lacks a nightlife -- everything (even McDonald's) closes at 10. Safety around campus great because the schools owns most of the property around the campus and renters have to go through a special screening process. Gettin away from campus it easy because the Marta, public transportation, is just down a couple of blocks. And because Agnes prides itself of diversity and acceptance, the student body is very unaccepting of non-accepting people, if that makes sense. For example, if you believe that fur coats is nice, most people will not be able to respect that you like fur coats and will brand you as an animal killer or something.

There are lots of local attractions near Agnes Scott. Many restaurants and places to shop. If you don't have a car there's MARTA and most places are within walking distance so getting somewhere isn't a problem and Agnes Scott is surrounded by other schools so there's a lot to do for fun.

Living on campus can really be a pain especially considering what one can receive...If you want space one has to sacrifice air . Or if you want air then one is sacrificing space... However if you a junior or senior then you really have the pick of the liter... (i.e. the campus apartments with space and air)
College Senior 2013-04-10T17:39:15Z
Student life on campus truly depends of the type of person you are...there's lots of outdoor activities if you enjoy nature and campus center if you enjoy the gossip. Or the dorm room media rooms if you like the staying inside and enjoying the company of others as far as meeting new people.... Any place could turn into a hangout area....
College Senior 2013-04-10T17:19:22Z
The different programs here a pretty diverse as far as getting what you want. The campus does there best to accommodate to there students if something isn't offered. However, one has to do a lot of research as far as you interest go because the school isn't going to help as far as doing the extra labor unless you do... Now for social events, Agnes really isn't the school to attend if your trying party, there are social events just far and in between. We do have a lot of traditions that require active engagement from the students but as far as frat parties and concerts Agnes really isn't the place for that...There are very focused when it comes to academics.
College Senior 2013-04-10T17:06:02Z
The athletic department isn't really that big as far as the choices. The gyms are okay but not great...
College Junior 2013-04-07T22:40:04Z
Depending on your Major, it will vary if internships are a requirement. I haven't had one yet but I do plan to. I want to work with physical therapists in a hospital setting. The school offers an internship connection program but the best way to find what fits you perfectly is your own research.
College Junior 2013-04-07T22:34:40Z
The facilities here are nice. Agnes Scott is a historic school so the beauty of the campus in undeniable. As for specific places, the student center is nice. There are places to study, workout room, piano, pool table, and an eating area called "The Hub" where students can eat and talk while watching tv. The library is very nice with multiple places to study in a quiet area.
College Junior 2013-04-07T22:20:28Z
I am a Psychology Major and it is the most popular major on campus. The professors in this department are passionate and knowledgeable. The workload isn't too bad. It challenges you to think about what is learned and how to apply it outside of class. They are very helpful in finding internships/ job opportunities for students.
College Junior 2013-04-07T22:10:46Z
The academics here can be rigorous. Each professor is very passionate about their discipline of study, so taking classes with professors with the same passion as you is exciting. The workload depends on which classes you are taking. Popular study places are in the library, the science building, or in our student center.

Agnes Scott is located in the city of Decatur which is 10 mins away from Atlanta. There are so many spots from sushi, Mexican, Asian, American, etc. Whatever food you like sure enough a place you will like isn't more than 15 mins away.
College Sophomore 2013-03-31T00:46:54Z
There is only one apartment that is off campus. If you want to live off campus and not in that apartment its pretty hard to do so. Decatur is pretty expensive and Agnes does not allow it.
College Sophomore 2013-03-31T00:43:42Z
Agnes has a lot of parking. Parking is pretty cheap compared to other schools. If you do not want to pay the $100 per year to park there are places close to campus to park.

Health & Safety:
I have never felt unsafe unless there is a function that is open to anyone. Agnes is pretty secluded so no one really bothers to do anything.
College Senior 2013-03-14T01:56:23Z
The college is very big on celebrating diversity with events and campus organizations. For such a small college, there are a significant number of international students, as well as overall racial diversity and a noticeable queer community on campus.
College Senior 2013-03-14T01:53:48Z
There is no nightlife at Agnes Scott. Everyone who enjoys partying usually ends up at one of the other schools nearby-- Georgia Tech, Morehouse, etc.
College Senior 2013-03-14T01:51:25Z
The classes are intimate, professors are very intelligent and the college environment is heavily focused on academics. However, sometimes I feel there is too much emphasis on class discussion/critical thinking-- both are excellent qualities, but it would be beneficial to have a little more balance in the classroom environment
College Sophomore 2013-03-11T15:18:16Z
