From Erskine College

As one of the oldest and most prestigious church-related liberal arts college in the South, Erskine prizes academic rigor and Christian authenticity. Our graduates lead companies, influence professional fields, and make their mark on our culture in many other ways.

Since it was established by the Associate Reformed Presbyterian (ARP) Church in 1839, Erskine College has been committed to the principle that facts and values–learning and faith–are inseparable. With this foundation, Erskine is committed to developing the whole person as a lifelong learner, encouraging students to think critically about their academic studies, with minds and hearts open to the truth.

Each of Erskine’s degree programs can be customized by working with faculty to create a course of study that suits your personal and career interests. All of your classes will be taught by your professors, not by teaching assistants. Our student-faculty ratio is 11:1 and nearly all class sections have fewer than 25 students.

    I've loved by experience so far at Erskine College. The community of students is wonderful, helpful and supportive when trying to get things done on Campus. The academics are challenging but the Professors are willing to work with students. Since Erskine is small, everyone gets to know everyone making for a great diversity and community among students and staff. The campus/facilities are beautiful, the food is average & the dorms are not too bad. The only thing that I would like to see change is to have something open on campus after 11 for students to hang out or eat at.

    Erskine is a great place to go if keep your nose in the books. I feel like its a great place to keep one focused due to the lack of distractions. There's a few local businesses like a hardware store and a mechanic, but absolutely no party scene. The housing and food are mediocre and the school is mostly made up of Caucasians. The athletics are decent and the campus is very safe!
    Erskine is what you make it to be. If you want to be miserable here, you most definitely will be. However, if you take the time to get to know classmates, professors, administration your time at Erskine will be more enjoyable than most. The people here actually care about you, do they have their faults-yes- but don't we all.
