I enjoyed the down to earth and homey feel that Coastal Carolina University gave me. I toured the whole campus as well as the off-campus scenery and enjoyed all that I had to see. The atmosphere at and around Coastal Carolina University will make you feel like your right at home, whether home for you is 10 or 1000 miles away.
