This was a great school when I firstBrightBiology
This was a great school when I first got here, but when we got a new president everything went down hill. It was once a fun and fair school, but the school then became very money hungry and really only caring about the athletic department while there are horrible parking conditions, one of the buildings is completely falling apart, and is the only building they do not bring tours through on the campus and it houses one of the biggest majors on campus. Another thing is that they are allowing more students into the university then there really is room for, leading to much over crowding within the dorms. And even in off campus available apartment/dorms, if you are over the age of 21 you are not allowed to drink unless your roommmate(s) are over the age of 21 you can not even keep it in your personal locked bedroom. They are slowly making the entire campus smoke free, and though I am not a smoker that is not right to the people who are, and they like to sensor the media and journals put out on campus.

Coastal is a beautiful University.BrightHistory/Histories (art history/etc.)
Coastal is a beautiful University. It is kept picture perfect. The climate is beautiful and the Beach is 15 minutes away. The students are all really nice and caring, same for the faculty. I am a history major and feel I am getting a great education. Forbes rated Coastal as a great buy. I couldn't find a better place!

I loved this school.Quite BrightPsychology
I loved this school. At first, I was unsure of where I wanted to go or what I wanted to do and somehow I ended up at Coastal. It's the best thing I ever did. The faculty is great. No matter where you go, there will always be professors that aren't really any good and I have had one or two professors like that - but the majority of them are just brilliant and I love them! Parking and traffic is really bad but the school provides buses to and from the dorms. The food is the commons isn't really good (unless you go for breakfast) but there is also a Grille which has good food although a bit pricey. There is a game room with tvs, billiards, ping pong, and video games all for free. There is always something going on and so many things to get involved with. Coming to Coastal you will find people from all walks of life and, for the most part, we all get along and respect and help each other. I would definitely recommend this school to others!
