Coe is amazing! The building might not be the newest and the city might not be the biggest, but the people at Coe are wonderful, hands down the best people I've ever met. From professors to acquaintances, everyone says hi, the professors don't just care about your grades, but they care about your success and your health, both mentally and physically. Coe is not just a college, but a family. No other college will welcome you so warmly, treat you like an equal, and make you feel loved and cared for as Coe does.

It’s college so it’s gonna be though and have highs and lows. Overall though my college experience was top notch. I had great professors who actually cared, comfortable environment and so many opportunities thanks to Coe. The 1:3 clinical opportunity really sold me when I toured. After that the people made it feel like home!
I absolutely love Coe! I wasn't sure what I wanted from a college and so I came (from out of state - more than 9 hours away) with the "You can alwaaaays transfer mindset"...... Well, here I am. It is so easy to get involved, to find faculty who care about you, and to take classes you are passionate about. I was very involved in high school, but leaving Coe my resume is going to be stacked - just because they provide you with THAT much opportunity (not saying resumes are the end all be all, but you do have to use them for grad schools or jobs so its something to think about).
Coe has taught me how to think analytically and independently, which, to me, is the ultimate "return on investment," if you will.
