When i first got to coastal it was

Apr 27 2010Business - Management and Administration
When i first got to coastal it was cool being near myrtle beach and the school seemed nice and inviting. After some time i began to realize the student body is full of ignorant, racist, closed minded, unintelligent kids. Cops are everywhere and for the most part harass and cite/fine students for anything and everything possible. Due to this if you want to party at coastal your not in luck, the party scene is virtually non existent. The myrtle beach area becomes dead in the off season and unless you have money and a car you will find the area extremely boring. The classes are not very stimulating and move at a very slow pace, mostly due to the lack of intelligence of the student body. After a year here i can say i don't think that coastal is the best school for anyone and would not recommend it.

I love this school very much, it may

I love this school very much, it may be because I have made some wonderful friends here. But Coastal has a great atmosphere and close knit community. Night life can be pretty fun depending on the weekends and weather. A lot of people go home on the weekends at least the dorm parking lots are Empty friday- sunday. Even though most people are wonderful, many students are from Jersey and are Obnoxious!!! If you love being active and going to the beach Coastal is great. It is a VERY active community, people are always at the gym, jogging around campus, or partake in a club sport.

The beach is probably the best part! When it is warm 64th street can have up to 300 students crowding the beach drinking and having a good time. Its a giant beach party every weekend. (be sure to bring a volleyball to coastal!)

My recommendation is come here if you are unsure of what you want to major in or this is the only school you got into and transfer after a year. I wouldn't recommend graduating from Coastal. Plus the school EATS your money!! They are fairly over priced for the education it offers. Come here if you just want to have fun and find your barrings your first year of school but if your serious about school and you don't drink, swim and party DONT come here.

this school is such a joke

May 03 2010Education
this school is such a joke. i was a freshmen this year, and by the end of the first semester half of the students left. even if you decide to stay and stick it out chances are that all the friends you've made left. I am leaving now. The traffic around the area is horrible the school is in the middle of two highways 544 and 501. sure the beach is 10 miles away but by the time you get through the traffic it takes 30-45 to get to the beach. idk this school was ranked for party schools because there is none, everyone just goes to this one dinky bar. the school is crooked they do little things to rip you off but do it so you cannot blame it on them. beginning of the year and at the end of the year when i went to the bookstore i didnt realize until i left that they did not give me back my student i.d, when i went back they denied not giving it back to me. I realized i didnt have my i.d the minute i got to my car, they do that during the beginning and end of the year because they know your in a rush. the service is horrible for anyhting they take so slow. the food is disgusting i had better food in my cafeteria. the workers are mean. and the libray is SUCH a joke, people are blasting music and talking.. sure it sounds fun until you have work to do. the parking is horrible residents can only park by the dorms but commuters can park there too so theres never parking and even for commuters there is not parking. the school has no spirit whatso ever. just dont do it. its a waste of money you feel like your at a community school so you might as well just attend one and save your money.. its a GHOST town on weekends
