I was a 3.4GPA student and a 1800SATBrightBusiness - Management and Administration
I was a 3.4GPA student and a 1800SAT (3 parts) at a competitive private high school in a suburb-city in Jersey. Coastal was NOT a challenge and I finished with 35 credits and a 3.9 GPA after two semesters. I didn't feel challenged and the people I was surrounded with were close-minded and didn't want to learn. They were obviously there just to party and 'Go Greek'. I had a fun time there but didn't feel as intellectually challenged as I would have liked too.

I went to Coastal for all four yearsQuite BrightPsychology
I went to Coastal for all four years of my undergrad. The atmosphere is great there, everyone is very friendly and I made lifelong friends there. Some of the classes were a bit too easy, I didn't feel very challenged for the first two years. However, once I got into my upper level Psyc courses they did get more challenging and interesting. Class sizes are typically small so professors know you by name and can give you one on one help. When I was a freshman, there were lots of fun parties but local and campus cops did crack down so now the bar scene is more popular which is fun but gets expensive. The location and weather are great and there are many clubs to get involved in. On campus dining wasn't so great but that's true of any school, really. I would definitely recommend Coastal.
