School Description

Established in 1839 by the Associate Reformed Synod of the South as an academy for men, the college became the first four-year, church-related college in South Carolina. It was named for Ebenezer Erskine, one of the founders of one of the antecedent bodies of the Associate Reformed Presbyterian Church and a pastor. Erskine began to admit women in 1894 and officially became coeducational in 1899. Some of the notable Erskine alumni include Beth Couture, Brian Haynes, and Charles Haldeman.

            Eskine College- One of the South's Best Academic SecretsI attended Erskine from 1992-96, and recommend it highly to those seeking the more intensive level of academic instruction and personal attention that is lacking in the large state universities. Every professor I had knew me by name and was readily available for out-of class contact. The campus is a grand mix of old and new facilities, far removed from a big urban environment in the ideallic countryside of Western South Carolina. It is probably one of the safest campus environments in the entire country. I made many life-long friendships, and obtained an excellent education that prepared me well for my post graduate education at the university of South Carolina School of Law, and my legal career thereafter. A large percentage of graduates fare very well in the competitive post graduate professions such as law, medicine and business school. While the tuition is not cheap, there is a great deal of both need- based and merit- based scholarship opportunities.
