New Coker College Residence Hall Going Up
Coker College is proceeding at a good pace as long as the rain stays away. This apartment village is set to open at the end of this summer in time for the Fall 2013 academic year. This is the first of several village residences that will be constructed as Coker moves forward with its "1500"growth plan. The college is planning to get to 1000 traditional-age undergraduates and 500 adult undergrads.
Admitted Students' Day
This Saturday will be the 2013 Admitted Students' Day and Adam Connolly, Coker's admissions director, says we are expecting a record number of students for the introduction to Coker College life. This is an exciting day and I look forward to both the Parent-Roundtable class I will get to do as well as the advising for the potential new students. As I told students in my speech class earlier this week when we spoke about language: "I hope the prospective students are very perceptive and able to develop a perspective on the college that will lead them to determine this is where they want to get their undergraduate education." A major benefit of the size of Coker is that visits are important because what you see is what is offered.
