HUGE Rooms – Agnes Scott is known for its large dorm rooms. As a freshman, you'll have a walk-in closet with shelving, and a decent-sized room. As an upperclassman you'll have several options, although the rooms are all a bit larger than those for freshmen--plenty of space for a table or a couch. The only drawback is that the upperclassman dorms don't all have air conditioning, and sound travels a bit in these old buildings!

Decatur Dining – Decatur is home to some pretty unique restaurants! Within walking distance is a noodle shop, Japanese restaurant, two Thai restaurants, several diners, and a pizza place. If you have a car or friend who can drive and are eating on a budget, I suggest Dekalb Farmer's Market. You pay by the pound for food, and it has a variety of ethnic and homestyle foods. The catch: They only accept cash!

Yesterday it was 65 and sun-shining; today it was 35, windy and hazy. The weather is very inconsistent but luckily we have a very small campus and do not have to walk very far to classes.

Too Many Off-Campus Choices – There are many off campus choices for dining and they are all in walking distance of the school and each other. The prices can be relatively high but the quality is amazing.I have not been disappointed yet,and Agnes Scott students are loved and get many discounts especially at the Pita Pit.

Small Campus but Great Options – The school is fairly small, but the dining hall has many options that can suit everyone's taste buds. For a snack black cat cafe or mollies is loaded with anything you need.

Agnes Scott has an environment in which it allows people to express themselves. There are so many different organizations and clubs that it is impossible for someone not to find one they fit in to. Every week we have guest speakers,events, and sport games. Something is always going on, there is never a boring time at Agnes Scott.

Convenient but Not Cheap – There are many options of public transportation and it is very convenient, but if you want to drive your own vehicle it is not very likely that you will find a good parking spot, nor a cheap one. Public safety at Agnes Scott is willing to pick you up anytime of the day if for some reason you can not make it back to campus.

Dining Near Agnes – There are many places to dine. My person favorites would be Farm Burger which is right down the street from the school. Farm Burger on sells burgers that have meat from grass-fed cows. The city of Decatur, Ga has many different options when it comes to preference. They have everything from sushi, to thai, as well as some of the restaurants that you have grown to love like Ruby Tuesday.

Agnes Scott is located in the city of Decatur, Georgia. Just in walking distance, you have access to everything that you could want or need. There is a Marta station right down the street that can take you anywhere you want to go in Atlanta and the surrounding areas. Also, if you want to go relax after a strenuous studying; you are just a walk away from the city of Decatur - home to many first class restaurants and fancy but affordable boutiques. The people of Agnes Scott of very friendly and do not mind helping you with anything you may need. The resources academic, social, emotional, physical, are endless.

Good Job Scotties – By attending this college, you have a very good chance of getting an intern ship during and after college, a job, or even acceptance into graduate school. They prepare you very well an they also have very good connections.

Guys & Girls:
All Girls School – It's all an girls school. Guys are here in your Senior level classes, but other than that you'll have all girl classes. Great for non distractions, but if you are a lesbian you still have that distraction.

Southern Comfort – The food is very greasy and very southern style. There isn't much change in day to day food. After freshman year, save your money on the meal plan so you can eat out as there are many affordable places off and around campus to eat.

Recently, the weather has been changing frequently. It will be warm one week then chilly the next week or warm the first few days of the week and cold the last days of the week. Sometimes it will be cold in the morning and you bundle up, but then by the afternoon you have to remove your layers of clothing to cool down.

Why Does This Have a Title? Srsly? Ethnicaly/racially Agnes is quite literally 50% Chinese (from China, not a crude generalization) exchange students who rarely attempt to speak English or ever stray from their group.
Economically almost everyone at Agnes is a stuck up spoiled brat. Everyone here gets financial aid from the school so I don't understand where the cockiness comes from, but most everyone is just a little rich kid with their head in the clouds.
Politically, everyone here is a super liberal democracy.
Sexual orientation is about 50/50 with half the students identifying as straight and the other half as LGBQT(and whatever other letters get attached to this weird acronym that literally no one knows because everyone is so tired of hearing about it.

Agnes Scott is perfect because it is walking distance from Downtown Decatur, which includes The Square. The Square is home to many different nice restaurants and shopping centers, along with events held there sometimes. The MARTA Station is also a 5 minute walk from Agnes making transportation easy to those who don't have cars. Also, Decatur is near Atlanta and there is plenty to do, being the capital of Georgia. Safety at Agnes is great it is also mindful to just be aware of surroundings when you go out.

Night Life – Black Cat is a hootin' hollerin' woopin' good time. Apart from this week parties on campus are rare and somewhat tame. However, if you are looking to party, you will not have any trouble finding a crowd and a scene to call your own.

Not Exactly "Stone Cold Sober" – For a school on the Princeton Review's Stone Cold Sober list, it's pretty clear that Agnes Scott definitely is not sober. Agnes Scott has a wet campus, and it's fairly common for there to be alcohol at events and the homecoming "Black Cat" week is a total drunken mess that the campus embraces. That being said, there is no pressure to drink if you do not want to and many students have a vibrant social life at Agnes and in Atlanta without drinking.
The drug scene is not big at all. Some people smoke but usually do it privately or off-campus, but it's only certain groups.

There Is No Greek System! Agnes Scott is such a small, specialized school that there is no Greek system! However, students looking for a vibrant Greek scene can definitely find some awesome frat parties at Georgia Tech.

Decatur is a great college town with super easy access to Atlanta via public transportation. In Decatur, there are tons of festivals, amazing and quaint restaurants, and cute shops to browse through. Atlanta itself is a great city with tons of attractions, from touristy stops like the World of Coca Cola and the Georgia Aquarium to student hot spots like College Night at the High Museum. Overall, you can't beat the area with schools like Emory, Georgia Tech, and Georgia State right around the corner.

Hot during move-in (Summer). Beautiful in the Fall. Winter is average. But it has a great possibility of raining--alot.

Guys & Girls:
This is a Women's College the only Men here are our Staff and Faculty. The Women are amazing some of the most beautiful, fun, outgoing, confident, intellegent, creative, self-determined, and hardworking people I have met in my whole life. :)

Campus is beautiful!
Woodruff Athletic Facility & Alston Campus Center are two athletic facilities open to campus community and a run around the school campus is also very safe and rewarding.
The Alston Student Campus Center is full of life.
McCain Library gorgeous and resourceful--very conducive for learning
Campus Activities--There is always something happening!
(Per not giving campus an A+ it is not possible for the campus to be completely flawless--we could use some renovations i.e. in the Residence Halls)

Most of the drug problems at ASC involve misuse of prescription drugs or marijuana.
Recent Alumnus 2011-10-18T20:47:55Z
No Off-Campus – Living off-campus is very expensive unless you are living with your parents. ASC is a residential community so I doubt that many students opt to live off-campus for cost reasons.

There is little help finding internships but the quality of the education is great and the faculty is wonderful. There is not a great variety of subjects to study though. (Biology)
Sorry, there are no reviews.
