Guys & Girls:
Because Agnes is an all girls school, there aren't as many men around. But it is not difficult to find men through activities, or classes and things. I have been in a long term relationship since I started Agnes, so when I am on campus I generally am not looking for other men.
Something else to note, because it is an all girls school, Agnes has a higher than average lesbian population and people of other sexual orientations. So if you are not looking for men, you will not have a problem fitting in.
No matter the sexual orientation, everyone at Agnes is wonderful, hard working, and friendly. It is a great environment for anyone.

Agnes has a very strict Honor Code, it is not taken lightly. Each person is expected to behave, act responsibly, and up hold the great reputation of the school. Because Agnes is so small, they are able to select only people they think will follow the Honor Code. As result, there is little need for rules, police, or strictness. There are always police around, but that is just to ensure safety of the young female students and to make sure you feel comfortable. Agnes is a very friendly school, unless you break the Honor Code.

Is there an A+++ option? Agnes Scott is a majority minority school, meaning that over 50% of the college is composed of people of color and international students. There is also a spiritual diversity on campus, with all kinds of clubs-- Daughters of Gaia, Muslim Student Association, NewLife, Baptist Campus Ministry, etc. present around the historically Presbyterian campus. There are people of all economic backgrounds, and plenty of non-traditional students (24+) who are returning for their degrees. Agnes has recently instituted a policy that any female-identified student is welcome at the college, regardless of sex assigned at birth. There is a vibrant LGBTQIA community on campus, and health resources available to people of all sexualities and gender identities. While there are some things to improve on, the overwhelming amount of diversity on campus truly makes Agnes Scott College stand apart in its region and in its class of institution.

There's a parking deck on one side of campus that is generally pretty open (and free for visitors!). A parking decal for students is fairly reasonable, as far as I can tell (I don't drive a car, I have a scooter), and allows parking access to all student lots on campus. Compared to other schools, Agnes parking is actually very accessible and close to mostly everything the school can offer.

Guys & Girls:
For the most part, Agnes Scott College attracts plenty of great people, people who are great beyond just the bounds of perception of beauty. Athletes, nerds, musicians, every type of person you can imagine comes to Agnes Scott and is able to participate in the community. As Agnes is a women's college, it accepts all female-identified individuals (regardless of sex assigned at birth), is a safe space for those who may identify as trans- or gender-nonconforming, and seeks to stay true to the intent of its founders to provide a safe learning environment for ALL of its students. With that intent in mind, there is no one way to categorize Agnes Scott Scotties. Feisty, fierce, and fabulous are some words that come to mind, but we don't really hold with traditional standards of beauty here. You'll find that Scotties rely on their brains as well as their beauty to get ahead at Agnes Scott. As cheesy as it sounds, there isn't one type of beauty or charm at Agnes Scott. It's the mix of what everyone brings to the college that makes the campus community beautiful.

There isn't much you can do about the Georgia weather (if you don't like it, don't worry- just wait five minutes and it'll change), but weather (really just rain) on this size of a campus doesn't really put a damper (ba-dum-TSS) on activities or having fun around campus. There are places to hang out in the residence halls and campus buildings, and there's also entertainment just down the street in downtown Decatur.

ASC is one of the safest places in the world! I have never felt unsafe.

this campus is very accepting and will make you feel welcomed n matter your race, religion, sexual identity, etc.

So many student on campus have cars so getting the perfect spot is not ideal. With that being said, there is always a spot in the parking deck and since the campus isn't that huge you won't have to walk that far from the parking deck to your destination.

There are plenty of restaurants and cafes nearby with reasonable prices on a student budget that are within waking distance from campus. However, if you have late night cravings (9pm-later), its harder to find places to eat and delivery is usually your best option.
College Sophomore 2013-01-09T06:28:48Z
There's plenty of parking spaces but the spots nearby are taken up quickly but the other ones aren't that much of a walk.
College Junior 2013-01-05T06:54:44Z
plenty of parking, but spaces closer to campus are filled up quickly.
College Junior 2013-01-05T06:44:02Z
students are only allowed to live off campus with parents or husbands.

The professors at the school are top-notch and the smaller class sizes are conducive to learning and being able to interact with professors and engage in class discussions. The curriculum and workload can be very difficult, but there are plenty of resources, such as tutors, to help. The only drawback about the registration process is that there are a limited number of classes due to the small size of the school, so it can be difficult to plan your schedule.

I am very happy with my program, and would definitely make the same choice to attend if I had to do it over. I am planning to get a dual degree in nursing from Agnes Scott and Emory and I feel a degree from these schools will be advantageous in getting a good job after graduation.

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.

The parking is safe and convenient. The parking fee is substantially less expensive than other universities in town.
College Sophomore 2012-12-26T01:50:01Z
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).

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.

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.

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.

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.
College Senior 2012-11-18T02:38:11Z
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
College Senior 2012-11-18T02:33:56Z
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.
College Senior 2012-11-18T02:30:51Z
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.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
