Competition is keen in the academic world

Coker is again able to tell the world that our small campus is ranked among the best institutions of its kind in the South and in the nation. We are 16 in the "U.S. News and World Report" review of colleges. As people look at the articles in the magazine and the articles reporting on that story, they will notice that competition is intense. While studies show that Coker does not lose too many students to Erskine in Due West, the article does show they are ranking second in institutions like Coker. Another private college in S.C., Claflin in Orangeburg is ranked at 13. There is a great deal of controversy about these ranking stories but the fact remains that when a college is ranked they generally let it be known. The competition is pretty intense and we are glad to be able to say Coker is there in the top 20.

Here is a link to the Greenwood Index Journal's web story on these rankings. Erskine again ranked second by US News & World Report
