I graduated from a South Carolina high schoolQuite BrightBiology
I graduated from a South Carolina high school and enrolled in CCU for financial reasons. I got the Palmetto Fellows scholarship, but Clemson and USC still would not give enough merit aid to cover tuition. Coastal basically gave me a free ride. I just couldn't turn it down, especially knowing that grad school is going to cost tons of money. I?m here and I love it! My profs are amazing. They know me by name and are so encouraging. The social life is good, especially at football games. I?ve made friends from all over the US. The dorms are nice! Shocker (I know). This campus is probably the prettiest in S.C. Most of all, I?m thriving and growing as a person. I am forever grateful that CCU gave me this chance. Now, my family can pay for my siblings? colleges and I can go to grad school. A Coastal degree is going up in value because the reputation of this college goes up every year.

Just don't go here.AverageCommunications
Just don't go here. The students only cone here to party, and the parties always get busted by cops anyway. The academic work is almost a joke, and there is never any pride in telling anyone you go to Coastal. Because it's not college, it's Coastal.

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.
