Coe is very resilient. Being a smaller campus, challenges face us differently than larger campuses- the effects financially are felt a little more closely. We have a very strong administration that is very well trained on how to deal with these obstacles as they come. The decisions that are made by administration may not be what students want or understand, but it's to make our lives better in the end. I think we have one of the most transparent institutions out there, students are involved in every step of the process for staff/faculty hiring. At Coe, the student voice really matters.

It is a great school where teachers are really available to help any day of the week, at any time

Coe's small campus and community were really what I was looking for in a college. The professors expect a lot out of you, but they're willing to put in all the work necessary for their students to succeed. I honestly cannot gush enough about Coe. I had such a hard time saying goodbye when breaks rolled around. Overall, if you can afford it and are motivated enough, Coe is an incredible place to learn and to be.
