| If off Agnes Scott is a women's college, therefore if you want to hang around guys then go to a co-ed school. Overall I love Agnes just like any other university Agnes does has it pitfalls like conflicting schedule times. However Agnes Scott offers a great environment where learning is a top priority and less than satisfactory grades or not acceptable. Because Agnes Scott is close to Atlanta there is no reason why you can't have a social life. If you want to go somewhere off campus we have tons of transportation options. I would chose to go to Agnes all over again. |

| My time at Agnes Scott College was some of the best of my life. It was a bumpy start though - I was homesick during my first quarter and it affected my grades. The college however worked with me and I brought my grades up. I had wonderful professors - with one exception ("Ripper"). I liked all of my classmates but one and amazingly I did not see her every day - even when we lived in the same dorm! (And I'm happy to report that she does not attend the reunions!) The Dean of the College and the Dean of Students were amazing women. Agnes Scott Hall and Rebekkah Scott Hall were remodeled during my sophmore year, so I lived in newly-remodeled dorms during my junior and senior years. I studied hard and if I wanted to play, there were plenty of opportunities. One thing no one has mentioned - SHOPPING! I live in Florida and when I go back every 5 years for reunion weekend, I make sure I have time to visit Lenox and Phipps. College is what you make of it. I enjoyed my time at ASC. |

|Not so bright|
| I am kind of confused by all of the negative comments here. I am starting my sophomore year at Agnes Scott College in a few days and I love it here. Agnes is 3,000 miles away from my hometown and I could not imagine myself going to college anywhere else.|
I do not mean to be rude, but I have a sincere question for many of the previous posters. Are all of you straight? I am completely serious, because I am a lesbian and I have an incredible social life here! I always have 2-3 parties that I am invited to on any night from Friday-Sunday. I also am very connected with the local Atlanta LGBT social scene. When I first came here a year ago on this day, I knew absolutely no one from the South.
I love the classes and professors here. I've always felt like I could meet with professors if I needed help with something. I'm generally fairly engaged in class. I'm pretty liberal artsy for a science major so that says a lot. I might double major in English because the English department here is great too. The Atlanta area is also a great place for internships.
Agnes Scott College is the first place I have really felt at home. There are a few irritating students, faculty and staff but for the most part people are helpful and care about their peers.
I am just trying to understand where the people who think Agnes is socially isolating are coming from. Because I imagine most other schools would be much more socially isolating for me. I have no idea about straight social life at Agnes but gay social life at Agnes is wonderful.That's all, it is two in the morning here and I hope the post above was not poorly written. If so, I want everyone to know that I am not a bad writer it is just super late.
