4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Close to campus, looks nice.

2 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Just crappy fast food. There is, however, and excellent coffee shop across the street.

4 College Freshman

Administration: Just don't be dumb/obvious and you won't get in trouble. They send you to the hospital if they catch you being obviously drunk.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: Parties aren't that big. TKE is kind of sketchy. The apartments tend to be good for chill partying with friends.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: I had half of my tuition covered. However, Coe is still expensive, and they're raising their costs next year.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: A lot of grease for breakfast, and breakfast never varies. Lunch and dinner are okay. The pizza is also greasy, and the pasta is very basic. They did update their cafeteria to include a sandwich bar (similar to Subway in style, but of course not in quality) and got a toaster oven for bagels and toast. The cook to order station is usually good.

Campus Housing: Depends where you live. In Murray, the desks are metal and banged up, and the showers get hot every time someone flushes. In Armstrong the furniture is significantly nicer and allows for more space in the room. The bathrooms are also cleaner. The architecture in Voorhes and Greene is pretty to look at, but I've heard they have a mold in the walls issue. Can't confirm that though.

Off-Campus Housing: I do not live off campus! I do not really know!

3 College Student

Off-Campus Dining: Two words. Taco bell. Nuff said.

3 College Student

Administration: No one really interferes which is pretty nice. As long as your not trying to hurt yourself or anyone else, they'll let you have your fun!

4 College Student

Scholarships: Lots of help from financial aid.

Party Scene: TKE, and BSEO have some parties. Be careful at TKE though...don't accept drinks from anyone....

3 College Student

Campus Food: Caf doesn't offer a large variety, but had an upgrade this year. Some days are great, others not so much. However, the PUB is always a great option.

4 College Student

Campus Housing: Murray Hall has a great atmosphere, and good rooms. Social atmosphere is very tight nit, it's easy to become friends with those on your floor. Lots of floors and two elevators can cause for some waiting to get on the elevator, but other than that, it's a great choice. Lots of other dorms to choose from.

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

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.
