5 College Junior

Facilities: Everyone is very friendly. The best place to workout is the Clark Racket Center. The library is big as well and majority of the people are respectful and quiet. There is always something going on on campus as well and it is never a dull moment.

4 College Junior

Facilities: We have a President's Ball which is a time to celebrate the year at a dance with your professors. It is similar to a prom and is a lot of fun. Also, Flunk Day! That is a day that is a surprise sometime after spring break when classes are cancelled for the day and you hang out on the quad with everyone. There is a big BBQ, different games, face painting, and much more. It is a great stress relief day when the end of the semester starts getting crazy.

4 College Freshman

Facilities: I don't spend a lot of time in athletic buildings, but my friends always have good things to say about them. There's always fitness classes going on. The Dows theatre is also great, its a beautiful theatre in the round where three plays are put on a year.

4 College Freshman

Facilities: Coe has a great accepting atmosphere, and being as it is a residential campus, there are always people around doing interesting things. Student senate has events every weekend, and other groups on campus have things as well. Some people never want to go home on weekends.

2 College Junior

Facilities: Student life on campus is not what's it's cracked up to be. The students are friendly and the location is great, however there isn't a lot to do on campus. Besides partying or sitting in a dorm room with friends, the campus really lacks entertainment.

Campus buildings are well maintained, and the exteriors are also unique. Aesthetically, the best buildings are the new apartments and the athletic centers. Coe has two athletic centers: the Eby Fieldhouse and the Clark Racquet Centre (which were both recently renovated). The lifting equipment is at the Eby, while most of the aerobic amenities are kept at the CRC. The school has no real plans involving new constructions; however, serious renovations should be considered for old apartments and Kohawk Village. The buildings have well-maintained interiors, but the exterior is not in the best shape.

Stewart Memorial Library is the only library at the College, but it has enough resources to satisfy students, with an abundant number of computers in the library. The library audiovisual department not only assists students with their projects, but it also showcases movies every other Saturday. In addition, students can borrow up to two movies every week from the AV department.
