Agnes Scott Again Included in Fiske Guide

Tuesday, July 9, 2013

Fiske Guide logoAgnes Scott College has again been included in the Fiske Guide to Colleges, which features more than 300 of the “best and most interesting colleges and universities” in the U.S., Canada and Great Britain, according to Fiske.

The listing joins others in which Agnes Scott is consistently featured, including U.S.News & World Report’s America’s Best Colleges, The Princeton Review’s Best Value Colleges and Colleges That Change Lives.

Agnes Scott “continues to be one of the South’s leading women’s schools,” according to the guide. “ASC’s climate as a small, single-sex institution leads to close relationships with the faculty and very involved students—both academically and socially,” said the guide.

The guide is written by Edward B. Fiske, who served as education editor of The New York Times for 17 years. Fiske also co-wrote, along with Bruce G. Hammond, The Fiske Guide to Nailing the SAT, as well as Fiske What to do When for College and The Fiske Guide to Getting into the Right College.

Agnes Scott College educates women to think deeply, live honorably and engage the intellectual and social challenges of their times. Students are drawn to Agnes Scott by its excellent academic reputation, exceptional faculty and metropolitan Atlanta location—offering myriad social, cultural and experiential learning opportunities. This highly selective liberal arts college is known for its diverse and dynamic intellectual community. Through SUMMIT, it provides every student, regardless of major, with an individualized course of study and co-curricular experiences that develop leadership abilities and understanding of complex global dynamics.
