Alma Mater

I don't venture to Decatur very often these days, but whenever I do, I make sure to stop in and say hello to the place where I spent some of the best years of my life... my Alma Mater, Agnes Scott College.

The beautiful brick buildings and enormous history behind the school never cease to fill my heart with a bit of awe and a bittersweet nostalgia. Thinking of all of the women who were shaped by their time here and who have gone on to do incredible things is so wonderfully inspiring. Just stepping onto campus brings it all back....

I still remember the way that I felt the first time I walked through the gates. I was moving into the dorms, and I was simultaneously scared to death and excited beyond belief. The future before me was absolutely limitless, and I really felt like I could accomplish anything. I remember that feeling so well, and I am still proud to be a part of such a wonderful, inspiring group of extraordinary women.
