The Renovation of Rebekah Scott Hall

Built in 1905 and listed on the National Register of Historic Places, Rebekah Scott Hall is the second-oldest building on the Agnes Scott campus.

This $16.5 million renovation project includes the creation of a new welcome center for prospective students on the ground level, new electrical and plumbing systems, and the installation of air conditioning to student residences on the upper floors. Reflecting the college's strong commitment to sustainability, the project will be designed to achieve LEED Silver certification.

"The renovation of Rebekah is vital to the success of SUMMIT," says President Elizabeth Kiss. "SUMMIT is designed to increase our enrollment, made possible with the help of a welcome center that tells the SUMMIT story, with an attractive and appealing living space for students in this lovely historic residence hall."

Renovation of Rebekah Scott Hall is well underway.
