If you are looking for a good academicBright
If you are looking for a good academic school, Coastal is not the place. The classes are easier than my high school classes. Most teachers do not about you as a student. At Coastal you will feel more like a number than a person and sometimes wonder why you are paying 35k to get treated like crap. The social life here is also awful unless you are in a frat or sorority. The only thing that I can say that is positive is that Coastal is close to Myrtle Beach and that the other students here are always friendly and helpful! Do not come here just becasue you think it is a party school or good atheltic school you will be disappointed in the end.

I think it is interesting how this schoolBrightBusiness - Management and Administration
I think it is interesting how this school basically drilled into our minds that the school is all about academics and is very strict regarding parties, alcohol, etc. during orientation. It turns out that it is actually the opposite. Coastal Carolina's academics are about as useful as a winter coat in Florida in July. Coastal doesn't even seem to mind that many people, even the majority of students don't seem to take the school seriously. They are even spending more money to upgrade the football stadium again even though the team sucks and it was just updated last year.

There is no socialAveragePolitical Science
There is no social life here. Unless you have a car, you'll be by yourself, unless you do Greek Life. Other than that, social life here is miserable and I regret coming here every single day.
