FLORENCE, S.C. — Earlier this year Coker College’s degree program for working adults, ALPHA, moved one of its three locations to Florence, and so far the students are happy and the recruitment numbers are up.
“I think one of the largest reasons we moved [from Lake City] was as we were recruiting in the Florence area we had individuals asking why we weren’t there and the need just kept growing in the Florence area to expand into that community,” said Elaine Hodges, the director of recruitment for ALPHA.
