2024 Year in Review at Coe


Physics students

Coe College's Society of Physics Students chapter was once again named an Outstanding Chapter. This is the society's highest honor, and is awarded to less than 15% of the 800 chapters. The continued dedication and successes of our students and faculty has helped Coe earn this honor for over 20 years.
