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.

So far college here has had many ups and downs. The campus is pretty and well kept, and it is very close-knit. The problems around here would be the food, diversity, and the area surrounding campus. Food is terrible. You can really only eat from the Cafeteria as a student. It gets very repetitive and most times, unappetizing. There is limited on campus food options such as the Wow Cafe, or the Coffee place, outside of the campus there is fast food options. Diversity around here is limited, this is an athletic school with many of the students being athletes. It makes it hard for a student outside of the sport scene to find their area. No greek life and not many student organizations. The downtown area is consisted of some restaurants and small shops. Only one street has this on it. If you want something more you would have to go to Florence (30 min), Columbia (1hr 30min) or Myrtle Beach (2hr). Which will not help if a student does not have a car.
As a freshman pursuing a BFA at Coker College, something I enjoyed the most was how friendly everyone was. There was a sense of unity and excitement that I think is crucial to embracing the college experience. In just a short amount of time I have already excelled in academics and have taken several learning opportunities in and outside of the classroom. Coker is a great place to challenge yourself to fully explore your passions and expand your knowledge!
