Coastal Carolina is a party school.Quite BrightEnglish
Coastal Carolina is a party school. Now, numerous students will tell you "it's ok, it's only a party school if you make it one." Well that's a whole load of baloney. The entire campus romanticizes alcohol and drug use as well as glorifying the fact that their dormitories are nothing more than mere brothels. It's humiliating to tell someone you're from Coastal as they do, indeed, make generalizations. Hell, the school's females are known for being "easy" for god's sake. CCU does have good academics, but sadly they poured all their money into funding their football field renovations rather than actually educating the masses. Overall, the school cares more about the number of zeros in their bank account than their students, but that's to be expected. The zombie like Alumni eat "Teal Nation" up no matter what. It's just some mindless bandwagon.

Question
I think coastal has a bad reputation, mainlyBrightEducation
I think coastal has a bad reputation, mainly because of the negative Greek life and how the athletes are treated much better than the average student. The surrounding area has a big drug problem so the campus can be a dangerous place sometimes. Not to mention, the police here love to bust every party and everyone found with alcohol as much as possible.

Question
I went to CCU because my boyfriend atQuite BrightBusiness - Management and Administration
I went to CCU because my boyfriend at the time was enrolling at HGTC and I wanted to be near him. Originally, I applied to other colleges in SC, but went here to stay close to him. We broke up and I thought of transferring to USC or Clemson, but I stayed at Coastal because it just felt like home. My professors all seemed to truly care about me. My classes were going well, and I was happy except for relationship issues. I was pretty depressed for awhile, but my profs they really took me under their wing. I was all set to leave but went on to graduate and become a nurse. I am glad I went to Coastal and thankful for the friends and staff there. Games were always fun. I was as prepared as anyone in my field and wound encourage anyone to go here. You will find your niche and be treated like family. There is something really special about Coastal Carolina.
