Rebekah Scott Hall Renovation
After 15 months of renovations, the historic Rebekah Scott Hall is open for the fall 2018 semester. The first phase of renovations, completed in summer 2015, repaired exterior brickwork and cupolas and installed a new roof. Second-phase renovations began in May 2017 and were completed in August 2018. Designed by Jenkins Peer Architects and executed by Holder Construction Group, LLC, this renovation exceeded $16 million, funded primarily by The Greatness Before Us campaign. Thank you to the generosity of alumnae, parents, faculty, staff, and friends who made this vital renovation a success.

The project included the renovation of student residences on the second and third floor (and for the first time, air conditioning), as well as the creation of the Elizabeth Kiss Welcome Center and a new look for the Office of Admission on the first floor. In this space, new displays showcase traditions and experiences and highlight what Scotties can expect in each of their four years at Agnes Scott.
