Coastal is a beautiful University. It is kept picture perfect. The climate is beautiful and the Beach is 15 minutes away. The students are all really nice and caring, same for the faculty. I am a history major and feel I am getting a great education. Forbes rated Coastal as a great buy. I couldn't find a better place!
I loved this school. At first, I was unsure of where I wanted to go or what I wanted to do and somehow I ended up at Coastal. It's the best thing I ever did. The faculty is great. No matter where you go, there will always be professors that aren't really any good and I have had one or two professors like that - but the majority of them are just brilliant and I love them! Parking and traffic is really bad but the school provides buses to and from the dorms. The food is the commons isn't really good (unless you go for breakfast) but there is also a Grille which has good food although a bit pricey. There is a game room with tvs, billiards, ping pong, and video games all for free. There is always something going on and so many things to get involved with. Coming to Coastal you will find people from all walks of life and, for the most part, we all get along and respect and help each other. I would definitely recommend this school to others!
I will miss this place when I graduate. As some of the comments posted are from negative students. They are the guys that never get involved with anything, then say there is nothing to do! If you can't find something to do, with the beach down the road...it's you..not Coastal buddy. This place is BEAUTIFUL and CLEAN and FRIENDLY. Professors are all great. I love it here.
