Coastal Carolina University Reviews
I was lucky to have the opportunity of attending Coastal Carolina University. It did provide a stepping stone for my future academic career in higher education and at the time it was the only University I could afford to attend. Unfortunately I do feel that some of the degree programs offered at Coastal Carolina University are in need of an update or renovation. Some of the degree programs offered are very beneficial to a future career path a student is planning on pursuing, while there are other degree programs that I do not feel are as beneficial as others. I was not required to complete an internship in my field of study, which also made it difficult for me to decide if the degree program I was studying was the right fit for me. I also did not feel that there were enough resources offered for students in STEM fields of study. I liked that it was a smaller campus and the classroom sizes were smaller as well. It was not too far from home and there were always various activities happening on campus.
I had a great experience at Coastal Carolina University. I enrolled into the Business Management program which was a quite difficult but developed program at the University. The department is divided by major but has great opportunities for learning. I also obtained a Women's and Gender Studies minor, this part of my college experience was my favorite. Through the Women's and Gender Studies department I was able to be an active participant on campus, raising awareness, and putting together seminars to create dialogue about things going on in our community. I was a part of Safe-zone a LGBTQI ally program as well as Girl Up. I was also involved in Greek life at Coastal Carolina. That was a great experience as well in terms of meeting people, and enjoying my experience.
My experience at Coastal Carolina University and the Health Sciences department was beyond what I could have imagined. Coming from a tiny high school, I knew I didn't want a tiny school experience, but I am so thankful that I didn't choose my school based solely on size. I gained so many more opportunities at CCU than I could have at a larger school because I had a chance to get to know my professors and take on student leadership roles that would not have been possible at a larger school. I was very pleased with my experience and always recommend CCU to students when they are graduating from high school.
The choice to attend Coastal Carolina University was one of the best decisions I made. This university did not only provide me with the best education but it gave me great experiences. Prior to attending college I was unsure of the possibilities of my future and what I needed to do to get the best out of the University. I attended seminars and conferences that made me uncomfortable so that I could step out of my comfort zone. By the end of my academic career I was holding a session to challenge the way college students think about their future. Overall if you are looking for a great education and an even better student life experience, I highly recommend Coastal Carolina University.
This program combines a majority of education classes and a minority of English courses. The education classes were not helpful or challenging. My professors behaved as though the courses were simply an afterthought to whatever else they had going .on. Many of the topics were common sense. I made a 4.0 in those classes without trying. The English courses, however, were of superior quality. While participating in those classes, I felt as though my time and money were well-used. The professors were involved, demanding, and treated us as professionals. The work load for those courses was often very rigorous. Often, we would have 300 pages of reading assigned for the night as well as having one night to complete a project. This made me feel good about the As I earned. The point of this program is to have you pass the Praxis and PLT exams.
CCU was a great school. There were a multitude of opportunities to be social on campus, a part of organized activities, to have fun (school/beach), and to work. I would recommend CCU to any potential students. We are continuing to grow as a community and are ever expanding our campus and class offerings.
