#7 for Most Accessible Professors & #8 for Best Career Services
Why Coe? Because experience is important to an exceptional education. Because community is a building block to success. Because these years should be some of the most memorable you’ll have.
Founded in 1851, Coe College is a nationally recognized four-year private college. But there’s much more to say about Coe, so let’s start with this...
- You'll build relationships in the classroom. Almost all of our professors hold the highest degree in their fields, so wouldn’t it be great if students were comfortable enough to just pick their brain like you’re having a coffee together? That’s what happens at Coe. We have the most accessible professors in Iowa (#7 in the nation) according to The Princeton Review.
- You'll stack professional experiences, like internships or research, on top of what you study. That leads to a deeper level of learning and helps build an attractive resume before graduation. Coe is the #12 private college in the nation for internships according to The Princeton Review, and we are also one of just a few private colleges to be a Research for Undergraduate Experiences site, which is sponsored by the National Science Foundation.
- You'll become part of a nurturing and lively campus environment. Living and learning go hand-in-hand and we want you to live your best life with great friends. Plus, Cedar Rapids has arts, museums, parks, trails, semi-professional sports and festivals — all the amenities of a larger city.

Internships confirm career choices
“If I didn't have my internship I wouldn't have had any experience at a law firm going into law school. It's really helping me see what daily life would look like for me as a lawyer. I'm definitely on the right career path.”
