Don't waste your time

May 19 2013Physical Therapy/Exercise Science
Don't waste your time. The only thing this school is concerned about is taking your money. They accept literally anyone to this university. There is no school spirit nor a fun atmosphere.

I cannot be considered an in state student

Aug 15 2013Unknown
I cannot be considered an in state student at Coastal even though I have lived in South Carolina for the past 6 years, attended high school here, two years at a technical college, registered to vote here, have two jobs here, pay state taxes here. No one claims me on their income tax, I file independently. I was considered an in-state student at the technical college but Coastal says since my father lives out of state I do not qualify. I live with my grandparents and have for the last 6 years but the college wants to know if they have legal custody. I am 22 years old, why would they have "custody" It appears that Coastal wants as many out of state students as they can get. It's all about the dollars!

This school is the complete OPPOSITE of what

Mar 20 2013Education
This school is the complete OPPOSITE of what you expect it to be. I am a current freshman from New York who likes to party on the weekends and gets above average grades.

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.
