    Agnes Scott College is a small but open-hearted school. There are several majors to choose from and the professors truly care about their students. We celebrate everything from pride to National Hijab Day to International Pancake Day! There are several clubs for student involvement as well, so you are sure to find something that piques your interest.
    Agnes is great! They really personalize your learning experience and you never felt left behind by the community. Some teachers and classes are more difficult than your average class however, that just comes with the territory. It's truly a great place both academically and socially.
