Information for Families and Parents

Congratulations!  Your student is now a Scottie and will join a sisterhood of women dedicated to the ideals of the Agnes Scott College mission to think deeply, live honorably, and engage in the social and intellectual challenges of their times!

We recognize that the transition to college can be difficult for both students and their families and thus have developed an intentional orientation program designed to support students as they transition to  the academic and social culture at Agnes Scott College, and for families as they support their students and transition to life at home without their new Scottie.

Orientation begins on Friday, August 23rd and family members are encouraged to participate through the end of the day Saturday, August 24th.  Included in the activities of these two days is the Parent’s Council Social for family members (adults only), the President’s brunch, meeting with your Scottie’s academic advisor and two special sessions for parents and family only.

We look forward to having you on campus very soon!  In the meantime, please utilize the resources on this page to help you prepare for your transition.\
