Student - Faculty Relationships

Engage like a Kohawk…

Your Coe professors start out as strangers but quickly become so much more. 

Our 11-1 student-faculty ratio provides you the opportunity to develop meaningful relationships with your professors. Take time to get acquainted with them — introduce yourself, ask questions during class or attend office hours. 

95% of Coe professors hold the highest degree in their field, many with national and international reputations. Our faculty members routinely use their connections to help students land jobs and gain acceptance into top graduate programs.

"At Coe, I developed close relationships with my professors, faculty members and fellow Kohawks. The entire Coe community is there for you. My professors had a huge impact on my time at Coe. It's because of them I hope to become a professor. They gave me all the tools I needed, and more, to be prepared for graduate school. They continue to support me and give me advice even though I am no longer on campus. I know I wouldn't be where I am today without their investment in my education. I know I will continue on to do great things because of education and experience at Coe. It is true - 'Once a Kohawk, Always a Kohawk.'"

Lindsey Schmidt graduated from Coe in 2014 with a Bachelor of Arts degree, double majoring in psychology and Spanish.
