Caters to out of

Jul 18 2014English
Caters to out of state rich kids, leaving Iowa roots and homegrown students at a disadvantage. Clicky, extension of high school - including faculty.

Coe is diverse in more than one aspect

May 05 2013Unknown
Coe is diverse in more than one aspect. It has a large sack of cliques and groups people can fit into and it does actually feel like the squeal to "high school" (concerning social life). Going to Coe is awesome if you have a jock strap on your head. If you are one of those people that doesn't devote 50% of their life to sports and getting smashed on weekends, think carefully.

Education is also variable. All I can (accurately) tell you about is the science program. If you're interested in hard science, you are in luck. The physics and chemistry departments will practically give you blow jobs. If you're a soft science kind of student, you're going to be one of many hands clamoring for attention. Professors, in general, are nice and understanding... those virtues don't always extent to the rest of the faculty.

Coe devotes A LOT of time and money to recruiting and it shows. Freshman housing can be terrible with the overcrowding and your first year support system is based solely around the idea that students wont realize that most of their 40,000 tuition is diverted to jock-related sports and recruiting. If you ever visit remember that old saying: all that glitters is not gold.Coe WILL take care of your money, very good care. All you need to do is be a jock and pick the right major... otherwise you might end up in shit-city.

Coe college is pathetic, hands down the biggest

Apr 29 2014History/Histories (art history/etc.)
Coe college is pathetic, hands down the biggest excuse for a school I have ever experienced in my life. I may only be a freshman but, I like to think I know what I want out a school.

Greek Life: Its pathetic, theres one house one the entire campus. It is run by the TKE fraternity, they are a bunch of fat weirdos or division III finest football players. They would have parties and the entire 1400 person campus would flood to their house like the world was ending. I went to a few of their parties at the beginning of the year, but after attending a party and talking to a guy that lived their who pointed out, I kid you not, "the high school trim corner". I decided I would never attend or associate with anyone in TKE again. This has benefited me well because my aspirations after college down involve mowing lawns in rural Iowa.

Real quick, Sororities are also pathetic. The forty person sororities that occupy Coe are embarrassing. Their constant Facebook posts of their "Socials" that occur in the cafeteria.... It is like being in high school all over again, except this time you have a greek life. Also, their voluntary exclusion from the rest of the student population should be embarrassing, I don't want to be 5 different people my entire college experience.

Parties - There are none,
Professors - amazing actually, its kinda funny, but I guess they have to be to deal with the 95% of kids who really just don't give a shit about anything. I mean Im a freshmen, I absolutely own discussions in classes filled with upperclassmen, its sad when the senior history major who is sitting next to you tell you he got a C- when you got an A-.

Sum Up, Coe is great for low income families and students who don't have a lot of choices when it comes to college. Financial aid is pretty amazing, they'll help you out a lot. If you are from a middle-upper class background, go to iowa... At least when you fail out of college your junior year you really partied at real parties and actually had fun and you didn't have to convoke yourself that your experience was "fun" or "unique"... otherwise you party in someones dorm room in which you have to whisper because "there RA is a dick.".
