College Freshman

Party Scene: I don't party at all unfortunatly. too much homework.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: It was incedibly difficult for me to recive my financial aid. The people in the financial aid office are very hard to work with.

2 College Freshman

Campus Food: It would be the best if the Subway and Chic-fil-a could take meal swipes! Hicks is usually okay if you go to the deli or go to the salad bar. Sometimes though the food is gross. I personally don't like CINO's burgers but that's just me. I just wish there were more options in the dining hall.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Aside from living with roommates that I don't necessarily like, I overall love living in campus housing. The roommate situation was out of my control, so I can't be mad about it. The dorms I live in are really nice for being freshman housing, I get my own room and I share a shower and bathroom with three others. The social atmosphere is great, strangers are always smiling and waving at each other, and everyone is very welcoming. The cost is expensive only if you are out of state. in state tuition is fairly cheap for college. the housing process was very easy. I was assigned a freshman dorm, but I got to choose my own dorm for next year with friends.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I've heard they are adequate enough. But I would not know as I live at home.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are plenty of places to eat outside of coastal. Tropical Smoothie is right across the highway and very good!

College Freshman

Administration: I have heard that they are strict, but I don't know from personal experience.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: They asked me 2 or 3 times to prove that I was an American citizen after I already sent them my naturalization form.

College Freshman

Party Scene: I don't and haven't gone to a party at my school.

College Freshman

Campus Food: I don't have a meal plan because I live at home.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: There are a lot of options for off campus housing and they are all really close to campus. The problem is that they are really expensive. And most people end up needing to live off campus because there is not enough dorm space for juniors and seniors.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Lately I have been eating off campus the most. As long as you have a car they are all easy to get to. And cookout is really close and really cheap.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: I don't really interact with the campus police that much. They can be really annoying when you need to show your ID to get to the dorms at night.Some of them can be really rude. But they arent really a huge presence.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I didn't get many scholarships from the school due to using the academic common market. They do not give you any scholarships you may earn if you are on the common market.

4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: The parties here are fun. It all just depends on your preference.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: There are very few options and they are not always good. The food served at UP cafe is awful. You can only eat there so much before you get sick. But the company that does the food works at many different colleges so im not sure if it will be any better other places. Its cafeteria food...

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I really enjoy living on campus. For freshmen, it is really close to everything you need. The woods buildings are small but you have your own room which is amazing. The regular dorms are the same as every other school. As a sophmore you end up living further away where having a car is really important but the rooms are so much nicer.

2 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I didn't receive as much as i did at my previous college(Lander) and they tried to charge me out-of-state at first

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Parties get busted here alot but they are fun while they last.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I love Coastal. I was a transfer student from Lander University which makes it an even better experience. The people are nice. Integration is alive and here at it's finest. I'm never bored which helps me to focus more knowing that i can reward myself after i do an assignment.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Off-campus housing is very close to Coastal, if you choose that option. However, with this the prices are more expensive, but still less than living on campus. A lot of other students live farther away from campus for cheaper than the apartments and more space.

Off-Campus Dining: Most students don't go too far off campus for food. The most popular spots are Cookout, Jimmy John's, Waffle House, and Dominoes.

1 College Freshman

Administration: Coastal us very uptight on many issues. Drinking and having people in your dorm is always a worry, because the RA's always like to break up the fun. Coastal police seem to always be lurking for their next arrest.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: As an out-of-stater with a low GPA I didn't receive any scholarships to Coastal. I applied for a few application-based scholarships but didn't receive any as well. It doesn't make sense however, thatCoastal gives more scholarship opportunities to in-staters than out-of-staters since we have to pay way more money to attend.

2 College Freshman

Party Scene: The party scene is slowly going down at Coastal. Due to campus strictness any and all parties WILL be busted by 12pm if not earlier. There used to be house parties at Quail and Goodyear but it seems as if those are no more. So for now the only options for students are small apartment parties at Monarch or spending a lot of money at Broadway at clubs.
