Decatur, GA, August 4, 2017—Agnes Scott College is one of the nation's best institutions for undergraduate education, according to The Princeton Review, which features the school in the new 2018 edition of its college guide, “The Best 382 Colleges.”

Agnes Scott is on several ranking lists in “The Best 382 Colleges,” including LGBTQ-Friendly (no. 7), Most Active Student Government (no. 9), Lots of Race/Class Interaction (no. 20) and Best Quality of Life (no. 20).
