Agnes Scott College Reviews
The first year dorm rooms were quite nice. Very spacious and cozy; however, the lift (elevator) would need some work. Sometimes it wouldn’t work, and it was a bit of a hassle, especially during move in day when I had to bring everything up the stairs onto the third floor.
Other than that, I do enjoy my academics. The professors are kind and understanding and also very supportive, especially when everything moved online. My professors were willing to give extensions when I was struggling, which is a plus
Overall, a great experience, despite COVID.
