Great campus! maintained to perfection.Not so brightBusiness - Management and Administration
Great campus! maintained to perfection. However, to much drinking and parties. University Place dorms are 1/4 mile from campus and you are isolated and free to do what ever you what, drinking all day and night, pot, parties never stop. The university play dumb. I would never let a freshman student live at University place. To much freedom in a place where the beach is your neighbor. Great weather too. The administration is in La La land...

I transferred to CCU a year ago andNot so brightAccounting
I transferred to CCU a year ago and it was the WORST experience I have ever had. The boys are wannabe thugs and they all just want to see how many girls they can sleep with! I met my now ex-boyfriend here and I contracted HIV and I'm on meds. I found out that he was pretty much phucking every girl he came in contact with and I felt awful. I have to live with this affliction for the rest of my life all because I thought I found love.

Also, this isn't my only concern. This school seems to accept way too many people causing the school to overcrowd. This is bad for those of us who've been here for a while. They give all the apartments to the freshmen. I now how to go elsewhere because I have nowhere to stay! All the roommates I have encountered have been nothing but unintelligent jerks and i've been nothing but nice to them. One of them wore my clothes.

I'm from up north and only came here because my mom is from Conway and attend this school, but I wish I hadn't. It's like big old high school for failures. I don't have a car so when I did go there, I was stranded on campus for the most part. The cops are pigs and the few parties that I did attend were lame as shit. This is a sorry excuse for a party school. I have friends at FMU and CofC and their parties ROCK in comparison to these rinkadink parties. This school will ruin you life. RUN AS FAST AS YOU CAN IN THE OTHER DIRECTION IF YOU'RE THINKING ABOUT COMING HERE!!!! AND DON'T LOOK BACK!Food is nasty as hell also.

THis school is pure bull shit..they told me my tuition would count as in state now they want to change it. they dont give much money in finacial aid and just expect you to pay 9,000$ on the spot. WHo has money like that besides weathly people, this is why the poor cant make a comeback.
