Major: History Minor: Music Hometown: Covington, GA Favorite thing about Agnes Scott: The size. It's a small enough school where you can actually know the people you're going to school and often form lifelong friendships with. Due to the size it's also a place where professors not only know your name but are often your biggest supporters. In my opinion small liberal arts colleges are the way to go!
