What is it like to go to a women’s college?

Going to a women’s college feels comfortable. From my experience, everyone is freer to be themselves. Personally, the pressure to dress up all the time is eliminated, which allows the attention to be on more important things such as academics. At a women’s college, I don’t have to think about being a woman.

What do you value most about ASC?

I value the fact that when it’s time to have fun we don’t hesitate but the main focus is on academics.

Tell us about a memorable Agnes Scott experience.

I had heard many stories of black cat week on my visits to Agnes Scott and from many upperclassmen once I got here, but there was no way to truly anticipate the experience that took place. The most memorable part for me was seeing the high level of participation and excitement from the students and faculty. Black cat week is a very serious tradition and I’ll never forget my first interaction with it.
