The campus is beautiful.Quite BrightGeography and Geosciences
The campus is beautiful...the building are so clean too. It's a botanical garden from March through December. January is cold. Spring comes mid February. Any student that doesn't like it at Coastal, will never be happy any where...they are just "unhappy" with life in general. I visited UGA, USC, and UNC. This was the best fit for me. It's best that the unhappy students leave ASAP, you always see them sitting alone under a tree...being miserable. is great too.

Don't come to coastal expecting to party allQuite BrightBusiness - Management and Administration
Don't come to coastal expecting to party all the time. you probably will but then your expectations will get the best of you and you won't like it here after you get written up. coastal isn't very intellectually challenging. it's a lot of busy work. the kids that go here aren't the brightest crayons in the box. when someone says something stupid the phrase is, "that's why you're at coastal!"

Alright, here's the scoop.BrightBusiness - Management and Administration
Alright, here's the scoop. I transferred to Coastal after doing a year of community college. I am originally from Myrtle Beach but went to high school and a year of school in New Jersey. Yes, a lot of people that go to Coastal are from New Jersey. Coastal USE to have an amazing party scene (2003-2006 era). The new school president completely wrecked Coastal's "party school" image which could be a good or bad thing. I attended CCU from the Fall of 2005 through Spring 2009 and graduated with my BS in management. It is extremely easy to just "get by" at CCU. I was quite active in various social circles and night life at ccu; sadly it dropped off significantly in 2007/2008. By my junior/senior year, I moved off campus and rarely attended to any "parties" near campus. The police and school politics wrecked the fun feeling. Broadway at the Beach is the only fun place to go and it gets old after the first 50 times you go there....seriously there is nothing else to do.
