Major: Biology (This Major's Salary over time)
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.
