Coe offers an amazing education, community, and overall experience. The classes are discussion based for the most part and really engaging, the professors want to make sure that you are involved in your learning so that you comprehend as much as you can. And they always encourage you to visit them if you have questions or want them to look over a paper. The students are all very friendly, there's not really any cliques or drama. Everyone smiles and says hi to you, even if you've just met them once, when walking to class or in the halls. There are many clubs to get involved with from improv to math club to volunteering to rock climbing. There are a lot of off campus study opportunities such as May terms, choir and band trips, and New York and Asia terms. They just got the Learning Commons in the newly renovated library, where you can get tutors or go to the Writing or Speaking Centers for help on papers and speeches. A lot of the campus is going to be renovated within the next few years. There is always something going on on or off campus. SAC, or the student activities committee, has free movies at the local movie theater once a month, study parties, music and performance groups that come to campus, and much more as do the other clubs. Cedar Rapids is a great city, it's small, although the second biggest in Iowa, and there are lots of events going on all of the time. There are maybe only two cons that I can think of and that's the food is not the greatest but it's good compared to many other schools and the staff there are all super friendly and greet you by name. And the area is a bit sketchy, but you're fine if you walk in groups. Overall I love Coe!

Coe College is an extremely diverse and tight knit community. The students and faculty are driven individuals who are passionate about learning. The schools slogan is, "Coe makes it possible. You make it happen." This most accurately describes the college's mission. The professors and faculty will do everything in their power to set students up for success. But it is up for the student to take action and become leaders in their fields of study. The small class sizes create more opportunities for students to become close to the professors and build lasting relationships with other classmates. Determined, accepting, and focused students should consider joining the Coe community.

I love being in Greek Life! I feel very connected to not only my sisters, but the campus, community, peers, and a great organization that does great charity work.

Each Greek org does quite a bit for their philanthropy; there is always something during the year to do to help participate (chili cook-off, dessert gala, Crush sale, etc.) even if you aren't in Greek life but want to give back to their charity.
