Coker University Reviews
I am an incoming freshman at Coker College. I have only participated in summer courses and activities at this point. However, I think the college is awesome! I like the small town location as its more family feel style. I cannot wait to move into my dorm next month and start the next chapter of my life. I am very excited about these steps and hope to continue my educational experience as well as my athletic career there over the next four years.
Very much an athletic's based school. Majority of the student population came there for the sports. That isn't to say Coker lacks an Art and Music community though. It is a bit expensive and lacking in some aspects, such as the surrounding area being in the middle of nowhere. However, it is a very intimate community where you know everyone, even if some are only friends of friends. This is perfect for kids who want a small school.
Coker University is a great school. There is so much positivity in Hartsville. The professors are awesome.Here at Coker you get to create relationships with all your professors. I love Coker University because it allows for me not to feel like I'm just a number it allows for me to be myself and create my own path. Coker has been around for a long time . The only reason why I didn't give it a five star rating is because, like every other older school it could use some renovations. Other than that it is great and did I forget to mention my dorm room is huge.
