A lot of people have the perception that CCU is a big time party school and that you don't learn a thing. Granted there are parties, but every single university in the world consists of students getting drunk on the weekend. Just because people party doesn't mean they're incompetent. If you want to learn business, this is a good school to go to. The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) International, the premier accrediting body for business colleges, accredits the business school. They have a program open to all business students that provide them the opportunity to work as an intern for various companies on the eastern seaboard. These internships are usually paid and will most likely set you up for a full time job upon graduation. The school set me up with an internship in NYC; it's been an awesome experience.

I agree with the posting below. This school is growing too fast and its resources are not meeting the students' needs. However, I disagree about the idea that FMU is better. I was there for two semesters and it was like hell for me. There is nothing to do in Florence and the university has nothing for you. The campus is very depressing and makes everyone depressed. Professors don't have the resources to teach. When they complain they get fired. So, everyone is afraid of retaliations. Since I came here, I met many students who had the same experience at fmu and they keep coming to CCU. My father told me yesterday, fmu is losing too many students and getting in deeper financial problems. My 2cents!

CCU is a fraud. If you're looking for a university with unfriendly professors or snooty students who are more interested in the mall than the classroom, you found it. Campus is pretty nice but you won't be here long before you figure out that you really don't count. Too much money for too little product, in my opinion. This time next year I'll be at USC or Francis Marion.
