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.
The student to teacher ratio is great at Coastal! All my professors know my name and are actively involved in my development. They all wish for me to succeed and are doing all they can to help my, assuming I am putting forth the same effort. The campus is also a walking campus, and they provide transportation to and from their student housing that is a little farther away which is nice. It saves me a lot of money on gas.
