About Coe College:

This undergraduate college is situated in the "heart" of the United States: in the state of Iowa. The location allows excursions to Chicago and New York City.

The advantages of the college may be seen in the following facts:

- you share a room with an American student on campus
- you get to know students representing an essential part of America that is often ignored by Europeans associating the USA with California or Florida
- you will take part in a typical undergraduate education
- the college offers outstanding sports facilities and many excursions during the semester
- the excellent library is open 24 hours a day
- you will be individually advised and guided by one of the most charming colleagues we have: Dr. John Chaimov, who teaches German at Coe College
