We have Literary Societies, which means we don't pay overly expensive dues to national chapters. Some societies have died out, others thrive and grow each year... just depends on the students & which society they choose to rush. So people try to pressure you to join their society and make you feel uncomfortable during rush, while others are pretty laid back & don't make you do anything the members themselves wouldn't do. Sometimes tension forms between & within the societies... but it's usually nothing too major. Be a Greek or a Geek!

Ladies Freshman Dorms - Big! All Others - VERY SMALL – I dreaded my freshman year and dorm living, but other than some overly joyous people in the halls, I loved my dorm and the space in my room then. Since, I'm in Bonner and it's a mild and mildew filled small space. I fight allergies, so this becomes an issue every year as there is always mold on my registers. The rooms are small in every dorm except for women's freshman dorms.

Due West of Nowhere – Erskine College is located in a very small town, Due West. Everyone knows everything about you. The campus is beautiful and small. The atmosphere is very peaceful and relaxing. The grounds are perfect for sitting outside to study or just hang out with friends. This is a very beautiful school!
