Every year, we hear about Coker College alumni who have put our institution’s core value—a passion for lifelong learning—into action in new, innovative ways.

Former Cobras have followed impressive career paths, engaged in exciting entrepreneurial efforts, dedicated themselves to the service of others, created critically acclaimed works of art, completed meaningful research, given back to their communities, pursued their own personal development, and committed themselves to lives of purpose through a variety of means.
