"Agnes Scott's weekly newspaper dates from February 11, 1916 — a publication called The Agonistic. There is no play here on the word 'Agnes.' The dictionary defines 'Agonistic' as 'Striving to overcome in argument; competitive; combative .... Straining to achieve effect... of or pertaining to contests... .' This title was chosen as a result of a student contest and seems a happy choice since a student newspaper should have a point of view to promote or defend. At any rate, this title prevailed until April, 1939, when the name of the paper became The Agnes Scott News. Professor McKinney has observed that one reason for the change was that 'Agonistic' was so often incorrectly written. In fact, in one issue of The Silhouette it was referred to as the 'Agnostic.' So the paper became The Agnes Scott News and continued so until April, 1964, when the present name, The Profile, came into being."
