Coastal is a good school, If your from in-state and ready to work hard. A degree from this school will not take you very far if your not in the top of your class, seeking grad school, or developed a major internship over your time here. I will graduate in May busted my ass and now have the opportunity to go to almost any law school i desire, with a substantial amount of scholarship. If your a business major willing to work, this school is for you. If your another major you are fucked. This school is not top notch and you will end up working at a restraunt upon graduation as many people who graduate from CCU do! The business college has great up and coming prestige! My advice if this is the only school you got into or so: Go to CCU your first year, do exceptionally well (this isn't terribly difficult) and transfer with above a 3.5 to wherever you want to.BE ADVISED!!! If you don't think you can deal with having a large majority of the students being JERSEY SHORE WANNABEES don't go here! They trample the campus and the trend has gotten worse each year i have been here! Needless to say it is not too hard to show out at this school and find it much easier to attend a grad school! Im in the top 15% of my class with a GPA of 3.57! At any other school i MIGHT be in the top 25% at best!
I attended Coastal for 1 year. i honestly did not enjoy my time there as were the students very closeminded, the faculty unhelpful and the city dirty adn below the poverty level. At first it was fun being in MB and enjoying everything but after a while it just became unbearable and the city really is disgusting not to mention most of the students come from the north ( NY, NJ, Del) and are complete morons. I would not suggest this school to someone is is openminded and a free thinker
This school only cares about getting your money and that is it. If you get in trouble off campus, you are required to pay the school at least a 100$ in classes. The school even gets police men to patrol in off campus housing neighborhoods. If you want to get in trouble with the police for hardly doing anything wrong, then this is your place to go. The only way to have fun in Myrtle Beach, is if you have plenty of money to spend. The school does not offer any extracurricular activities like they portray they do. If you don't like to party, then you will have nothing to do, and if you like to party, get ready to get into trouble, because they are looking for any person to make a mistake.
