Erskine College has been preparing students for lives of learning, service, and leadership for more than 180 years. As a Christian liberal arts college, we educate students for careers, but more importantly, we prepare you for your life’s calling.
Rigorous, Personalized Academics
At Erskine, you will enjoy a personalized experience. With 19 majors and 27 minors, our faculty can help you customize a course of study that suits your personal and career goals. Class sizes are small, so professors know their students and seek to build mentoring relationships with them. Whatever opportunities you seek—research projects, internships, externships, mission trips, or study-abroad experiences—you can be sure your professors want to see you succeed.
Prepared for Life
Erskine prepares students for both the workforce and graduate studies. Among those who apply to graduate school, 98% are accepted into their chosen program.
Erskine offers more than 25 student organizations to complement the academic experience. You might join a literary society, which is similar in some ways to a fraternity or sorority. You might end up in one of several secret societies. You can also get involved in leadership through residence life, student government, or other student organizations.For generations at Erskine, social life has centered around nurturing strong, lifelong friendships. It’s one tremendous advantage of a small school.
Erskine offers 23 sports and competes dually on the intercollegiate level as a member of the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Division II as a member of Conference Carolinas, and as a member of the National Christian College Athletics Association (NCCAA). We are committed to the growth and development of our student-athletes. We want them to be competitive in the classroom as well as on the field of play.
Faith and learning are integrated in the classroom at Erskine, and we make the spiritual growth and development of our students a priority. Students can take advantage of Bible studies, worship, fellowship events, and retreats sponsored by campus ministry groups, including Baptist Collegiate Ministries (BCM), Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA), and Reformed University Fellowship (RUF).
Erskine’s spacious 90-acre campus provides both classic and modern facilities. The Galloway Activities Center contains two gyms, racquetball courts, an aerobics/weight room, a climbing wall, and an athletic training facility.
Led by the student Intramural Intern, we offer several co-ed intramural sports for those who have a competitive spirit, but also like to have fun. Offerings include sports such as dodgeball, ultimate frisbee, volleyball, and more.
Students are welcome to join the fun with our all-campus activities brought to you by our Erskine Activities Board and the Student Government Association. From trivia nights and grocery bingo to larger events such as Fall Fest, the Campus Life Office has something for you to enjoy.
The Erskine Financial Aid staff works individually with each family to provide a financial plan to make college affordable. Most Erskine students receive some form of financial assistance from federal, state, and institutional aid sources. Merit-based scholarships in academics, athletics, drama, and music are awarded annually.
