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.
Review Coe College
Coe College is very friendly to dietary, religious, and physical restrictions and has quite a few welcoming and helpful professors. Living spaces are decent. I wish the community was a bit more friendly in terms of sexuality, gender, race, and political views as things tend to get very tense and sometimes violent. This could be resolved with campus speeches as there are many support groups and events. There should be more talk about the importance of education, being respectful to others and their desire to learn, sexual consent, sexual safety, and sobriety (drugs and alcohol).
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!
