College Freshman

Greek Life: I am in the process of looking for a sorority (we just got Alpha Gamma Delta, so im looking into that one), and the majority of the Greeks seem nice. Some can be stuck up snobs, but you will find that no matter where you are and no matter if theyre Greek or not

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Athletics here are taken seriously, but not a lot of people go to the games. The facilities are kept up to date

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I dont live off campus and havent gone through that process, so i have no clue what its like

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are options within walking distance that are very well priced and have great food such as Riley's

College Freshman

Administration: I never have trouble with security because i dont make trouble, so I wouldnt know how strict they actually are

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: I really didnt have to work for my financial aid because of my grades. TIP: Get good grades and you will get money for them!

College Freshman

Party Scene: I really wouldnt know where the parties are because I dont really get invited to go anywhere. BUT, the floor above me sounds like they have great parties on the weekends

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: The food is okay, way better than last semester. However, there isnt a variety of options after 6pm on the weekdays, and there arent a lot of vegetarian or vegan options

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Its like living in an apartment almost. You may have neighbours who are very loud, and you have to learn to live with it. You also have to realize, its not just you in the room. Chances are, you're sharing it with one other person, so you have to learn to compromise on things as well as respect their space and items.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: I do not eat off-campus, therefore would not be able to have a good input

4 College Sophomore

Administration: Administration in general is helpful and friendly, and quite lenient as well.

1 College Sophomore

Majors: There are few options, and the academics is not rigorous at all - classes are extremely easy and will not prepare you for graduate school or professional careers.

Athletics: Athletics is a big part of Coe. A lot of people go to athletic events.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: It is hard to find off-campus housing at a reasonable price in Cedar Rapids. Coe offers apartment-style housing that does not require a meal plan. This is a useful tool to utilize as a person with financial needs.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
