March 13-18, 2016

Peak Week is a fun and engaging week of global, leadership, social and personal development programs exclusively for upperclass students. From March 13-18, students will not have classes, and instead will have the freedom to pursue in-depth workshops and experiences alongside exciting social options in a conference-like environment. Residence halls and campus services are open for students actively participating in Peak Week activities.

Peak Week programs and sessions are intentionally designed to:

  1. Address/raise awareness for a global issue and present solutions
  2. Prepare students for life beyond and after Agnes Scott College
  3. Work to richly develop individual personal growth and development
