Senior Class Gift

Pub Patio Improvements

Congratulations, Seniors! As you go through your final semester at Coe, you likely have mixed feelings of excitement, nervousness and anticipation. As you prepare to become Coe College alumni, it’s time to celebrate all your achievements and remember the countless alumni who, for decades, have supported Coe. It has been a tradition at Coe for graduating seniors to bestow a gift upon the college.  #LeaveYourMark with a gift to improve the PUB patio.
