What Students Are Saying

3.78 Average Rating
Don't eat at the Commons everyday. Don't drink every night.
Erin from Catawba , SC
Study, study, study! In high school, classes and tests were nothing like they are in college. As long as you go into a test, confident and well prepared, you will be fine!
Also, don't let the whole being on your own, get to you. If you focus more on your studies, and less on hanging out, you will succeed.
Strive for only the best!
Caroline
There is nothing like experience in a classified field, definately the Professors at my college have. For example, my area of study is Business Finance. Many of the Professors have made the business ventures that I hope to make some day. It is great having someone teach you what they have been through, and they understand what all it takes to get you there. With the Professors, classroom settings, and advisement staff I was sold on Coastal Carolina University.
Davon from Charleston, SC
Come ready to work and learn. But, also have a good time. Your professors may be a pain and sometimes your best friend, but just do your work and stay focused. Also, make sure they learn your name. Participation can make college so easier and you learn more. That makes you look better and the professor will be more lenient.
Demarko from Goose Creek, SC
Make sure you apply early, I applied late and got stuck with a really hectic freshman schedule. Of course you must study, my freshman year was my worst year because I treated it like high school.
Charles from Sanford, NC
Don't get caught up in the beach life or party scene. Be a balanced college student, especially here, it can get tricky balancing it.
daniela from Conway, SC
Coastal is a great school to attend and offers many great opportunities. There are so many majors and they continue to grow.
Kelsey from Mullins, SC
study is the key to make good grades. repetition of what is taught is the key to learning, so go over information discussed in class. find a good balance between school work and your social life.
Tiesha from Lancaster, SC
Don't stress about classes because if you need help, let your professor know and they'll see that you care about your grade and will be more than willing to help you out; they have office hours and will help you out one on one if needed. Not to mention, college is not high school, so study whether or not you have a test so that you can retain what you've learned during lectures.
