Agnes Scott Again Named a Best Value

Wednesday, February 15, 2012

The Princeton Review has once again named Agnes Scott one of its top Best Value Private Colleges.

Agnes Scott was one of five Georgia colleges and universities included on the 2012 Best Value Colleges list, which identifies America's top 75 private and top 75 public undergraduate schools offering excellent academics, generous financial aid and/or relatively low cost of attendance.

“For a university experience with a small school heart, Agnes Scott has a very empowering environment. Students gain hands-on experience using a multi-faceted approach, and with the small campus and class sizes, all voices are heard,” Princeton Review noted in its profile about Agnes Scott.

Overall, the 2012 "Best Value Colleges" list features 150 schools in 37 states and the District of Columbia.

The Best Value Colleges for 2012 were selected based upon institutional data and student opinion surveys collected from Fall 2010 through Fall 2011. Broadly speaking, the publication said the factors it weighed covered undergraduate academics, costs and financial aid. The publication also considered the percentage of graduating seniors who borrowed from any loan program and the average dollar amount of debt those students had at graduation.

Agnes Scott College educates women to think deeply, live honorably and engage the intellectual and social challenges of their times. Students are drawn to Agnes Scott by its excellent academic reputation, exceptional faculty and metropolitan Atlanta location—offering myriad social, cultural and experiential learning opportunities. This highly selective liberal arts college is known for its diverse and dynamic intellectual community. Through SUMMIT, it provides every student, regardless of major, with an individualized course of study and co-curricular experiences that develop leadership abilities and understanding of complex global dynamics.
