Coastal Carolina University Reviews
I love how open and welcoming everyone seems to be on and around campus! The professors are helping when they are asked, but you have to start by building that connection with them right off the bat otherwise you might have a hard time to make that connection. It is important to get involved and a majority of the campus is into serving/giving back to the community.
I love Coastal Carolina University! Classes are small and teachers are very easy to talk too! Teachers are very prompt and classes are very informative and you feel like you are actually learning and not doing busy work. The campus is beautiful and close to the beach, in case you need to get away for a little while to clear your head! Tuition isn't bad, southerners are very friendly, and living conditions are ideal!
I love Coastal Carolina University! The location, my dorm last year, my friends, professors, all of it! I am a Physical Education major, and the Education program at CCU is ridiculously acceptable. As a freshman this past year, I had already gotten experience within an actual classroom, and from here on out, I only have more coming for me.
