The Campaign for Main


With its bell tower, Agnes Scott "Main" Hall is the iconic building of the Agnes Scott campus, inspiring warm memories and deep affection across generations of Agnes Scott alumnae. Students ascend the steps of the Main Hall tower to celebrate their successes—first jobs, graduate school acceptances or internships — and ring the bell while surrounded by the signatures of Scotties who came before them. 

GOAL: $31 million
DEADLINE: December 2020

This past winter, the Agnes Scott College Alumnae Board took the first steps in raising funds for this historic and deeply important renovation. The board has challenged every alumna to come together to match its collective gift of $2 million by June 30, 2019. This is a vital first step in reaching our renovation goal.

The renovation of historic Main Hall, like Rebekah Scott Hall, is critical to Agnes Scott's efforts to recruit and retain the 21st century student. Home to the president's office and the office of the dean of students, the main level currently also houses administrative offices and conference rooms, while the upper three floors accommodate housing.

Reflecting the college's continued commitment to environmental sustainability, Agnes Scott will strive for LEED certification, following the recent renovations of the Anna I. Young Alumnae House (Silver), John Bulow Campbell Hall (Gold) and Rebekah Scott Hall (Platinum).

"If Main went, a lot of memories would leave. It's a place where people made lifelong friendships, made memories that shaped their lives. For over a hundred years, it has been the center of all Agnes Scott alums' lives at one point. It needs to be here, for tradition's sake."
