Coastal Carolina University - Comments and Student Experiences |
Besides the fact that the campus is beautiful and 15 minutes away from the beach, the school is terrible. Many professors either don't care or care too much. They either hand you good grades or make you work your ass off.
Bringing a car seems extremely ideal at first, but you will come to realize that parking is TERRIBLE on campus and you WILL get at least one ticket at some point. It also becomes expensive because everything is so far and you will be using a lot of gas.
The students here are ridiculous. Yes there are a LOT of snobby, rich northerners but the southerners aren't the greatest people either. Regardless, majority of the students are stuck up, judgmental, and so rich and WILL make fun of you if you don't drive a brand new, expensive car.
People call this school a party school? The parties here SUCK. The frat parties get busted by cops by midnight so other than that, it's hard to find a good party to go to. And if you're a guy and aren't in a frat or don't play a sport, you will have no life. Mykonos is the only decent club but it's a 20 minute drive.
The cops here are complete assholes. If you smoke weed, plan on getting caught. People snitch left and right and they bring in dogs as well. This school's alcohol policy is beyond ridiculous. There's no chance of drinking and not getting caught eventually. There's so much more to write but hopefully this saves a lot of people's money and time. Don't be fooled by the location and the pretty campus, trust me.
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.
