WHO WE ARE:

The Atlanta Chapter has traditionally hosted a number of annual events, including Reader’s Connection and Arts Connection gatherings, a fall kick-off luncheon, summer parties, and Winter Seminar that connect us to the intellectual heart of the college and to one another. We are excited to begin events and activities again, with care and creativity to keep our community safe and healthy. A planning meeting for Spring events is tentatively scheduled for December 4, 2021.

This chapter has strong ties to the Buckhead/Brookhaven area, but Scotties throughout the entire Metro Area (and beyond) are welcome. 

To join the Atlanta Chapter email list, contact the Office of Alumnae Relations: alumnae@agnesscott.edu

 

WHO WE ARE:

The Decatur Chapter Steering Committee is excited to report that we met in September to resume planning monthly events and activities.

This chapter is based in Decatur, but Scotties throughout the entire metro area (and beyond) are welcome. 

Our chapter personality is laid back and closely connected to the campus and Decatur, and our members, events and projects reflect that close connection. Our members include every age, generation, race/ethnicity and other demographics, including retired faculty and international alums.

Past events include book groups, trivia nights/happy hours, service projects (Scottie Supply Closet and Passport Fund support current students), college athletics, and activities on the campus calendar.

The calendar features programs that hold special appeal to our alums, with at least two events per year held on the Agnes Scott campus.

P.S. Agnes Scott Alumnae Mentoring Circles

P.S. Agnes Scott is a series of new initiatives to support the transition from student to graduate to early career professional.

Watch for an article in the upcoming issue of Agnes Scott The Magazine.

As part of the program, the Alumnae Association has launched Mentoring Circles, a program designed by alums for alums. The program introduces alumnae role models to seniors and our youngest alums as they transition into early career/grad school success.

  • Each Circle is made up of a small group of recent grads and led by 2-3 young alums (less than 10 years out) who are serving as co-mentors for each circle.
  • Circles are meeting every other week, during September - November (approximately six circle meeting times, plus the August Kick-Off).
  • Most meetings are being held virtually.
  • Common topics for all circles include budgeting, how to launch careers effectively, signing up for benefits, reading a lease, handling the adulthood juggle, building your network, etc.

INTERESTED?

To be a MENTEE - submit your information via the MENTEE registration form. The current pilot will inform the next round of circles in 2022, so if you weren’t ready for this round, you will be able to sign up later.

To be a MENTOR – Register through the SUMMIT Career Connect Alumnae Network.
