Information for Commuter Students

Welcome Commuters!

We are so excited you have chosen Agnes Scott! As students who live off campus, you will face challenges not experienced by your peers. While we can’t prevent Atlanta traffic, we can make your life a little easier by providing you with a lounge and computer lab specifically for you in Alston campus center.

We look forward to meeting you,
