“Oh The Places You’ll Go”

The new 2015-2016 academic year is officially here! How exciting to meet the new Scotties and reunite with friends, classmates and professors. This year, we welcomed the biggest class in the history of Agnes Scott College, over 270 students. This group includes 30 international students, who arrived a week earlier than everyone else to learn more about the American culture and our education here. They all seem happy and excited for their adventure in a new country.

Afterwards, the international students joined the regular orientation, which was busy but at the same time very exciting!

The Agnes Scott community, including President Kiss, helped out our new students with moving in. The golf carts were everyone’s favorite!

Everyone appreciated the delicious sno-cone booth that came to campus on a hot and sunny move-in day.

During orientation, the first year students participated also in the Honor Pledge Ceremony, a tradition during which we pledge to be honest, upstanding and accountable to the community.

We have an exciting year ahead of us with new classes, internships, research and study abroad opportunities. Feel free to visit my blog to read the news from campus. You can also email me at globaladmission@agnesscott.edu to ask questions or receive more details about applying to Agnes Scott. I look so much forward to helping out some of you in the application process and sharing with you the experience of my last year at Agnes Scott.
