Solar panels installed on the roof of Clark Racquet Center are expected to generate 10 percent of Coe's electrical usage.


  • Coe goes green
    The Urban Field Station outlined by the college's strategic plan — A Bolder Coe — is closer to reality following the installation of solar panels on the roof of Clark Racquet Center.

  • Environmentalists, social entrepreneurs speak at Contemporary Issues Forum
    The iconic founder and owner of Patagonia Yvon Chouinard and conservationist and founder of Blue Ribbon Flies Craig Mathews participated in a moderated discussion at the 15th Coe College Contemporary Issues Forum.

  • Teach me how to Dougie!
    A fixture at Coe since he arrived as a student in 1977, Athletic Equipment Manager Dougie Peters '81 has devoted his life to Kohawk athletics and is undoubtedly the champion of Kohawk spirit. In appreciation for all that Peters has given to the college, the Coe community wants to pay tribute to him by naming the equipment room in his honor while installing a one-of-a-kind mural of Peters and his Coe family.

  • Coe's world view
    Select photographs by students and alumni from the 2017-18 Gallery of Photographs in the Coe College dining hall. The gallery is a celebration of the college's ongoing internationalization efforts, the international diversity of Coe's study body, and artistic expression through photography. How Coe students see the world and the lenses through which they view it is the focus of the project.
