Coker is very biased with students and its administration is corrupt.

Some Coker College professors give grades based on their personal feelings towards an individual. Challenging a grade is useless because they are private so obviously they don't have any rules to play by.

The refunds I needed from my financial aid to buy Books online were held by the financial department until the end of semester. I think they hold it so students are forced to buy their books from the on campus book store

The food on many occasions has been too grotesque to consume. During my tenure at Coker there has been student protests concerning campus food!

Please save your time and money and stay away from Coker. If you don't listen to anyone, listen to an alum. I only graduated from Coker because many of Coker's classes are non-transferable. Please stay away from this corrupt institution. If I help one person avoid the mistake I made, then this post was worth it!

Coker's (science)professors are what make the classes so interesting and wants me to further my career in that field. I've made great relationships with them and they really do care whether or not you succeed, they want the best for you. It isn't just the science professors that are awesome, there are many others (PE, Sociology, Education...). But there are also teachers who are boring and doesn't create a captivating teaching experience. But out of all the teachers I have had, great and not-so-great, every single one is willing to stay over extra time in order to help.

Coker is an old and small school, but every year the freshman class gets bigger. My freshman dorm room was the best one so far, because it bigger than everyone else's room, had our own bathroom, and just a few feet from the laundry room. My roommate and I lucked out. But our sophomore room was way smaller and had the suit mate rooms (sharing a bathroom with another pair of roommates). We had maintenance problems, but were fixed by our school's maintenance crew. Our room lottery is simple, you're given a number based on your GPA and semester hours you've completed, and then you get to choose your room off of your ranking. Coker is a private school, so it's really expensive for me, but I've gotten a couple of scholarships and grants that help out some. I guess the dorm room life is average cost, but the dining/ food plan is NOT worth what it is,
