Summit and New Student Orientation 

The Goizueta Foundation New Student Leadership Immersion (GFLI), a new program under the Summit Initiative, is a three-day, off-campus experience that facilitates the development of leadership skills necessary for students to transition to and thrive within the Agnes Scott Community. This program initiates the leadership development curriculum at the college. The 2015 GFLI will take place August 22 - 24 at Camp Twin Lakes in Rutledge, GA. All new students (first year and transfer) will attend. If you would like to know more information about this location, click here Throughout the GFLI new Scotties will participate in workshops led by Agnes Scott College faculty and staff that focus on self awareness and leadership, developing interpersonal, intrapersonal and management skills, and academic skill development.
