Agnes Scott College is trying a new tactic to attract students: a booklet that smells like the picturesque, tree-shaded campus.
The women’s college, in Decatur, Ga., will soon mail a booklet containing scented pages to its 800 accepted applicants. The smell of pine accompanies a photograph of campus trees. A few pages later, an aerial shot of the Quad comes with a whiff of freshly mowed grass. The idea is to convey the experience of strolling through the campus, especially to students who have yet to visit.
Trees are a major feature of the Agnes Scott. The school website says the campus has a canopy of more than 2,000 trees as well as a campus arboretum. That's one reason Agnes Scott recently was named a Tree Campus USA.
