Erskine College is a four-year Christian liberal arts college affiliated with the Associate Reformed Presbyterian (ARP) Church. Since our founding in 1839, generations of students have found a second home here at Erskine. This is more than just a college—it’s a community where students grow in knowledge, faith, and maturity.
Our students get a high-quality education from a biblical worldview. With just over 850 students enrolled in undergraduate studies, Erskine follows a personalized approach to academics and extracurricular activities. We don’t believe in settling for a one-size-fits-all college experience. We equip our students to Rise Above the Ordinary.
Where are we?
Erskine College is located in Due West, a town of 1,200 residents located in Abbeville County, South Carolina. The town and the college, with a number of antebellum buildings, are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
Due West is located near lakes and recreational areas with easy access to the cities of Greenville, Anderson, Greenwood, and Abbeville.
Erskine’s spacious 90-acre campus provides both classic and modern facilities. The signature towers of the Erskine Building are complemented by a state-of-the-art science facility and a music and math education complex. Centrally located on campus is the Bowie Arts Center, a modern gallery and event space. The Galloway Activities Center contains two gyms, an aerobics area, a weight room, and an athletic training facility. The Literary Societies, as old as the college, are located on campus. Students eat in Moffatt Dining Hall, which was renovated in 2019, and in campus cafes.

HOME OF THE FLYING FLEET
We are the Erskine Flying Fleet, a name adopted in 1929 when sportswriter Carter “Scoop” Latimer commented on our football team’s impressive use of a wide-open passing attack. Today, Erskine competes on the intercollegiate level in the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Division II as a member of Conference Carolinas.
