2 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are very few off-campus dining options within walking distance, and there is not a wide variety of options. It's necessary to drive at least 15 minutes to find a wider range of dining options.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: The Athletic Training program at Coe College is fantastic. It's fairly competitive and we get to learn from experienced athletic trainers and are given many opportunities for hands on experiences and learning. The facilities aren't great, however they are adequate in terms of supplies and the size of the rooms.

3 College Sophomore

Computers: The internet frequently has issues, however it is usually a priority to get it fixed as soon as possible. Printing on campus is usually reliable and we are given a good number of pages each semester. The need for a personal computer is not necessary, however it is very convenient because not every building has a large number of computers.

3 College Sophomore

Transportation: There is not really any school provided transportation. However, there are city buses and taxis that can be utilized if necessary.

5 College Student

Majors: Coe offers a really good variety of majors and minors

Majors: At coe everyone gets a faculty advisor to help them decide what classes to take. you can switch to an advisor in your area of study so that you are for sure getting into the classes that you need. I am in the business and accounting programs, I enjoy it, but you have to be aware of what teacher you are taking it with. knowing the teaching styles of the teachers in your major are crucial to succeeding at any college. my first semester I took accounting with a teacher that was a great teacher but didnt teach in the way I needed to learn the material. so the second semester I took it with a different professor and did incredibly well.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: First Avenue is dotted with restaurants, and a large number are within walking distance of Coe. The closest is Wendy's, which is barely off of campus at all. There are also a handful of restaurants that deliver, like China Inn and Zio Johno's, which are relatively cheap and of good quality.

5 College Freshman

Diversity: I've found that Coe is very accepting of all people, which makes for a great school atmosphere.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: While I am not myself a part of Greek life, I do see that they do a lot of interesting and fun things on campus, as well as help out in the local community. They are always raising money for philanthropies. Each sorority has their own wing in the all girls dorm, and the same is true for the fraternities in the boys dorm.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Campus security is always available for students, whether they need an escort back to their dorm late at night, need taken to the hospital, or are just locked out of their rooms. There is very little crime or theft on campus, and people are trusting of each other because of that.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Coe is a residential campus, so very few students choose to live off campus. Usually the only ones that do either live in the area with their parents, or are a non-traditional student that lives with their spouse/family.

Students who consider academics their main priority will not regret attending Coe. The importance of getting an education often outweighs the prominence of a student's social life, and it is totally up to the student to balance both of these aspects. For many students, their first day of Coe College started with a speech from the school's President, which discussed the essence of having a sound education in writing, critical thinking, and speaking ability. Over the course of four years, students develop these skills, both inside and outside of the classroom. Generally, the liberal arts education students receive at Coe prepares students to work in their desired field after graduation. However, it is of no surprise to see an accounting major working for a health camp in the Peace Corps—you sometimes end up where you least expected to be!

The only reason to ever reconsider Coe would be its location; the small areas of the school and the city are probably the worst of what Coe has to offer. Cedar Rapids is not the best place to be in the United States, but Coe College's good blend of other necessary factors overshadows the darker aspect of the Midwestern region.
