Coker is in Fall Break

Coker College is in Fall break. There were no classes on Thursday or Friday and this came as a major RELIEF to nearly all parts of the Coker community, even those who would not have time off during this Break.

This year the Fall Break coincided with an Executive Round Table put on by the South Carolina Association of Non Profit Organizations (SCANPO) so I took advantage of not having classes to attend that meeting, "Tomorrow's Philanthropy Today." I thought it would have good information for The Byerly Foundation and there is no question it was a useful conference.

And, most of the athletes were on campus despite the Fall Break. The Coker Volleyball Team snapped their losing streak and beat Converse College on Friday. The Men and Women's soccer teams were heading to Wilson, NC, to play Barton College on Saturday evening. The Coker softball team had a three-game tournament scheduled for Saturday and I think both the basketball teams might have been having individual work outs as they get ready for the season opening practice on October 20.

For many, Fall Break is a time to catch up on grading or catch up on papers or just continue studying because until the semester is over, the work part of the college experience never seems to end.
