What Students Are Saying

3.98 Average Rating
Erskine College has wonderful opportunities that allow all students to achieve their goals. With rigorous academics and many opportunities for extracurriculars everyone can find their niche here. Professors and faculty are always available to help making this a wonderful experience for all who attend.
H from SC
Erskine has a beautiful campus, fantastic professors, and a great community. There is too great of a focus on academics, though, and the administration/Student Services are not always working with or for the students. Overall, worth it because of the people I have met along the way.
Sarah from Bloomindale, GA
The teachers are fa-nominal! They will work with you, and want you to succeed. The school is so small that it is honestly like a family.
