This school is terrible, it is extremely strictBrightBiology
This school is terrible, it is extremely strict on campus. I've never even been to the high school principal and on the first day i was written up by a state trooper for not having my id on me. The teachers are very nice and the school is extremely easy, sometimes i feel like I'm in the 13th grade. the night life here is terrible, theres never anything to do unless your in a frat with 500 dollars to spend per semester. If my major wasn't marine science i would have been out of here after the second month.

Just don't go here.Quite BrightPolitical Science
Just don't go here. If you are considering this school, change your mind. If you are capable of going to class, and doing the work, you can easily get a 4.0. If you do go here, you will sit in class and wonder how half of these people graduated high school; if they applied to a real college there is no chance they would have been accepted -- hence why they are at Coastal. I would say about 90% of the people I know here are transferring.Save your time and your money, go get a real education at a real school.

Coastal Carolina has been the worst choice IBrightBusiness - Management and Administration
Coastal Carolina has been the worst choice I could have made. First off, people aren't joking when they say that EVERYBODY transfers. Yes, the campus is beautiful but that's pretty much all it has to offer. Unless you are completely loaded the social life sucks because everything costs so much money to go out. And basically that's the only social thing you can do because the cops are so strict they break up every party there is. Not only that, but the people here suck and nobody is from South Carolina and if they are it's because they are too dumb to get into bigger schools like Clemson or USC. I would not recommend coming here unless your prepared to end up transferring again by the end of your freshman year which is also a joke since half of the credits don't transfer. Also, all of the professors are a joke and out of all of my classes I've only liked a few of the professors. I haven't learned anything new yet because it's all stuff I've learned from high school. This college is a waste of money.
