Coastal Carolina University Reviews
Review Coastal Carolina University
After having met with a few of the professors, and socialized or studied with the students, I have come to love the University more so than I could have imagined! Unlike other campuses I have visited, Coastal seems to be more comfortable not only as a home, but as a learning environment. The professors are always available for questions, and assistance needed in the subject the are teaching. The dean of student affairs is a pretty great guy too, he helps with a lot around campus. It's an amazing and truly a unique campus!
Most professors are very helpful and genuinely want students to succeed. In my experience, going to office hours if you are struggling, despite doing your absolute best, improves your chances of succeeding in the course because most, if not all, professors are willing to put in the time and effort to help their students improve as long as it is evident that their students are also putting in adequate time and effort into the class. There is a wide variety of classes offered, especially a variety of the GenEds needed to graduate. Class sizes are great, even as a freshmen: my largest class only had about 35 students in it. Overall, CCU is a great university!
My experience with CCU is that every student has the opportunity to do great things, whether that be in his or her field of study, or in a community setting. The advisers here genuinely care about their students and strive to make sure they graduate on time and are happy in their major. The sense of community is astounding and every staff member tries to go out of his or her way to give their students a positive experience, even in troubling times. I love Coastal Carolina University and would recommend it to any student looking to further his or her education!
