            Chanticleer Pride

            I couldn't have asked for a better experience than I had at CCU. On the surface, the campus is beautiful, warm and inviting. Being from Ohio, the palm trees alone made me smile every day. The educators and staff are great leaders and mentors and hold you to the highest standards. I'm grateful to each and every one of them for pushing me and providing guidance when I needed it most. I would highly recommend Coastal to any Art Major who was looking for an inspiring place to study. I feel I received a solid, well-rounded education and graduated with the skills I needed to take the next step. I would also recommend getting involved with student activities. It was by far the best decision I made while attending. The people I met and the connections I made were key to shaping the person I am today. Keep up the great work Coastal - I love reading about and hearing how you are growing and striving to keep your standards high.
