It is a small college, but everyone it very kind. The teachers are helpful and really do want students to succeed. They could have a few more activities, but they try to do as much as they can.
This is a nice campus and I like the feeling of having smaller class sizes. Most of the professors are good and they are willing to help you with whatever you need. Since it's a small college, its easy to find time to talk to your teachers. However, Coe is not top tier. The campus is seriously lacking in things to do at all times. They boast about how many clubs they have but most don't meet and are not active. This leads to boredom. They are also cutting programs and spending money on seemingly useless things.
First year on campus has been a great experience. I like all of my professors and my classes have been very helpful.

everything is great. except for the price. many people struggle to handle the pressure and money issues. so we scramble to make sure we can stay.
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!
1. During my study, I forced to change my composition teacher every year. Neither of these teachers had idea where the path of my education should go next: the first one was a decent professor; the next one was still pursuing his doctor degree in University of Iowa; the last one is a high school teacher doing it as part-time job.

2. They are very conservative: a DAW lab locates in the B1 floor but nobody uses it. Yet after you graduated, these are the very basic techniques letting you to survive in this industry.

3. Overpriced. Seriously I paid $40,000 to "hire" a high school teacher teaching me how to write music? Before the school I did four studio albums and produced many artists I just don't know how to play an instrument so many school in the U.S. wouldn't accept me.

College education is an investment toward yourself. Don't invest $23000 a year and end up nothing: no connect, no experience. If you have a dream, go to a big city, even it is a for-profit or low ranking school.
I did a high school program at Coe and had an awesome experience the food was great and the walking distance from my class to my dorm was only a short walk away, but the freshmen dorms aren't that great in my opinion. Overall I give it four out of five stars.
Overall, professors care immensely about all of their students, and academics are a clear priority to the college. The only thing I would say negatively about Coe is that they need a facelift. Just to update and beautify the surroundings would make all students so much happier.
The thing i like about Coe how immensely diverse it is. The amount of culture there is eye opening. Something I would like to change about Coe is the tuition cost.
The campus at Coe is small and everything is easily accessed. The class sizes are smaller than the typical large campus classes. This allows for students questions to get answered in front of the whole class. The professors care for your education and have office hours that get used by students to further educate themselves and ask questions. The campus has a wide range of activities and organizations for all. The dorms are decent for being around for a while. The custodial staff work very hard to keep all the buildings in clean and working condition. There are many options for work study position if the student is eligible for it. Sports are a part of campus but participants are kept to being a student first. There is a new workout facility on campus that is nice and has something for all to do.
Very friendly staff, you feel like you belong the minute you step on campus. All the professors do everything the can to help you. Sporting events are attended by a lot of people. The surrounding community is amazing, there is so much to do.
Since I've started school at Coe College, I have been challenged in so many way and it's crazy to think that this place exists in Iowa. The staff here is so educated on their subjects and how to adapt to different students' learning styles. They are all very approachable and easy to talk to. They know who you are and the seriously want you to succeed in their classes. There's no way for you to fail at Coe unless you are trying to fail.
Great experience. Professors were always approachable and genuinely wanted to see students succeed. Coe provides students with the opportunity to make their student life experience however they would like. Many opportunities to engage in events and organizations. My athletic experience was nothing short of amazing.
Coe has a beautiful campus. It's small enough that you're going to get one on one connections with everyone, but it's also large enough that you'll always have someone new to meet. The cost is a bit high, but it is well worth it.
Coe is a place where everyone feels welcome. They have so much to offer through academics, clubs, and sports. The professors care about you, know you by name, and are always there to help when you need. Overall, Coe is a happy place and has a wonderful learning environment.
I love the atmosphere at Coe, the feeling of being welcomed, no matter where you're from. In addition, the professors make college feel less overwhelming, whether we're talking about the new living arrangements or your class schedules for the next four years.
I had an amazing visit with this college, and I hope the rest of my years here go very well. However, after viewing the alumni and the other students at the college, I think that I will have an amazing experience here.

I love the atmosphere at Coe. If you try to find friends and get involved, this place really does end up being like a home away from home!
Coe has a great nursing program with 3 semesters of 1:1 preceptorship... not to mention all the professors at Coe care about you and you’re on a first name basis with 90% of them.
Fantastic education on par with the best universities in the country. The professors are truly there because they have a passion for teaching and mentoring students, something you may not find at larger institutions. That said, the price tag is rather steep vis-a-vis the amenities and services. The facilities, food, and athletic programs need a considerable amount of investment to make Coe a national and international destination. The endowment needs to be inflated and enrollment increased by at least a couple thousand.
