Learning has always been relatively easy for me,

Jan 19 2013Biology
Learning has always been relatively easy for me, I started college my senior year by attending classes at a local community college. Compared to this community college CCU was great. There were plenty of faculty members who were extremely helpful. Many of the students were very friendly and I'm glad I had the opportunity to meet them.

Now, here's the real issue with Coastal, they do not prepare you for the real world. Getting a job is extremely difficult once you graduate, even with experience, because this is not a well known or reputable school. Even graduating with honors, with research experience, extra curricular activities, having an on campus job in a Learning Assistance Center as a tutor for 3 years...this is NOT good enough to get a job in your field. Planning on going to Graduate School? Expect to pay for every dime of it. You won't be earning a fellowship because attending Coastal isn't impressive to Graduate Schools.

**Get involved in a program (while in school) that will give you a guaranteed job after you graduate.**Also, good luck scheduling your classes to graduate on time! If you can get into the honors program, DO IT. It allows you to schedule your classes earlier than most students and you'll actually be able to get into classes.

please whatever you do DO NOT go to

please whatever you do DO NOT go to coastal carolina. it is a flat out joke. they lie to you during the tours saying how they pride themselves on all the sports and clubs they have.. but come to realize it a little too later they offer legit nothing. there is no transportation offered. the classes are a joke even the teachers are trying to get out. if you come here there is something probably wrong with you. small school small campus in between two main highways with no chance of getting off campus. pretty much youre trapped here. they offer nothing for fun, except bingo once in a while but good luck cause you'll most likely be trampled by all the ratchet ghetto kids trying to cheat. if you go here im sorry im transfering out ASAP

This school is a joke

Oct 22 2012Political Science
This school is a joke. If you are intelligent, do not come here. I came here because i got in for practically free and knew i would transfer to a better school. If you do not have a 3.5 or above, you do not belong in college. The problem is that most people are here to "party" and seem to not have grasped the idea that college is school. If you want to waste 20 grand a year to party and go to the beach, then this is your school.
