Erskine College

At Erskine, our difference starts with our size. You can do things here you just can’t do at larger schools. Like walk two minutes to class, know the names of all your classmates, or get individual attention from your professors.


As a Christian liberal arts college, we educate students for careers, but more importantly, we prepare you for your life’s calling. We’re committed to equipping the whole person – intellectually, physically and spiritually — to make a positive impact on their families, communities, country, and the world.


Faculty members teach small classes that foster student interaction and intellectual development. Erskine encourages person-to-person communication to maximize student learning.


In fact, a primary focus at Erskine is on personal interaction that leads to lasting friendships and discovery within a community of engaged learners. Many professors even invite students into their homes, forming significant and lifelong friendships. Choosing a college can be tough. It’s not just about your next four years. It sets a course for your career and a foundation for how you approach life and decision-making.


The best way to know that Erskine is right for you is to experience it firsthand. And the best way to do that is a personalized campus visit or join us for an open house. We’ll show you around our beautiful campus, schedule personal conversations with professors and/or coaches in your areas of interests, set up a financial aid consultation, and tailor your visit to match your needs.


All the experts agree. A campus visit is the best tool for helping you make that decision.


From a recent applicant:
Erskine’s dedication to providing a Christian atmosphere and high academic standards are the reasons chose to apply to Erskine. The campus visit solidified my choice to apply to Erskine College. My parents and I were impressed at how Shawn Glover, Admissions Counselor, knew students by their names as he showed us around. The small class size, individual attention, and friendly atmosphere put my parents and me more at ease about making the transition from high school to college.
