Coker College has once again been named in The Princeton Review’s “2019 Best Colleges: Region by Region” web feature as a “Best Southeastern” school. This is the 14th consecutive year in which the college has achieved this honor.

“I’m happy to see Coker College recognized again this year,” says college President Robert Wyatt. “We continue to enhance the student experience thanks to the dedication and hard work of our faculty, staff, alumni, donors, and our board of trustees. The 2018-2019 academic year will see our largest first-year student class to date, the launch of our AccessCoker initiative, the addition of a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in studio art, our first-ever esports team, the resurgence of field hockey, and as always, a commitment to student success. It’s an exciting time to be a Cobra.”   

The Princeton Review compiles its list based on institutional data collected directly from the colleges, visits to schools, input from college counselors, and the opinions of The Princeton Review’s staff. Schools selected as “Best Colleges” are considered “academically outstanding and well worth consideration” by the esteemed publication.

The 143 colleges represented in the “Best Southeastern” category come from 12 states: Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia and West Virginia.
