This college is academically challenging in a positive way. The sense of community is strong on campus. The professor-to-student ratio is great, and the learning center is very helpful.

Aesthetically Agnes Scott is like being transported to Hogwarts.
The professors, staff, and other students are always willing to work with you and happy to do so.
The tuition isn't cheap, but financial aid will do everything possible to work with you to get you here and keep you here.
Brianna from Decatur, Georgia
A college that is accepting of students from every background possibly imaginable. The possibilities are endless for what you want to study with classes that include a variety of interests and programs allowing students to create their own majors if they want more than what Agnes Scott offers. With a beautiful campus and a close proximity to Atlanta, Agnes Scott packs a lot of punch for a small school.
