Monday, August 12, 2013

Princeton Review logoAgnes Scott College has yet again been recognized as having one of the best qualities of life in the nation, according to The Princeton Review’s 2014 Best 378 Colleges rankings based on student surveys.

The college, included on Princeton Review’s Best 378 Colleges and Best Southeastern Colleges lists, was ranked No. 8 nationally for the second year in a row on the “Best Quality of Life” list.

Agnes Scott was ranked No. 11 nationally for “Town-Gown Relations Are Great” and No. 12 nationally for “Easiest Campus to Get Around.” The college also ranked No. 15 on the “Stone Cold Sober Schools” list.

“The ‘phenomenal’ professors at Agnes Scott are ‘indescribably amazing.’ Their passion for the subjects they teach ‘shines through in everything that they do.’… There are ‘rich opportunities as a consequence of small size’ (such as extra tutoring on writing skills and “great opportunities for networking”), and ‘students get opportunities that most graduate students exclusively get at other universities,’” according to Princeton Review.

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.
