There’s never been a better time to be a Kohawk. Coe College is ranked among the top 20 percent of all colleges and universities in the United States.

Our location in the heart of the Cedar Rapids, Iowa provides students with access to over one thousand internships and jobs. Cedar Rapids boasts the lowest unemployment rate of any city in the nation for college graduates. Because of the superb networking and internship opportunities we provide, The Princeton Review recently named Coe one of the nation’s Top 25 Best Schools for Internships. In fact, 100% of students are guaranteed an internship, research project or off-campus study experience.

Our low student-to-faculty ratio means students have access to accomplished, knowledgeable professors who are interested in their success. Coe faculty members routinely use their connections to help students land jobs and acceptance into top graduate programs.

With nearly 100% of reporting graduates employed or in graduate school a year after graduation, the results speak for themselves.
