    I think that Coastal is slightly overpriced. The education is average, as are the amenities that the campus offers.

    We're building a movie theater, estimated to be done in 2015. There will also be a game room and activity house. It's a giant student center.

    Its worth the money you spend for the school but outrageous for housing, although it may appear nice at times its not worth it and you would prefer to have your OWN place. You meet a lot of people most of the people their are friendly and open to meet others. But it does seem Clique-y at points.

    Cheap school... well for instate students. Those out of state students though... hate to be them. Also the rates haven't been having high increases like many other schools have been having.
