TAMUCC is like the dream beach campus, the sunsets, private beach and palm trees every where give you breath taking views everyday. Classes are small enough for professors to pay attention and help you with anything. I just completed my second year here and love it to death.
Mariana from Corpus Christi, TX
This campus is beautiful and full of busy student organizations trying to spread news and gain members. Everyone can fit in because there is a social event or greek event that caters to everyones needs. The beach is right across the street!
