Coastal Carolina University has a
reputation. We’re known for being a financially feasible option for students.
As evidence of that, CCU has once again made the list of America’s 100 Best
College Buys. To be on a Best Buy list suggests that people see value in what we
do. Coastal has made the Best College Buys list for eleven consecutive years.
That means there’s been a long-term commitment to making sure that we really
stretch the dollar. Providing value is a priority for Coastal. We talk about
how we look and feel like a private school, in some ways, at the cost of a
public education. The cost of higher education and what the student gets
for it, is maybe more important than ever. Now, more and more families are asking
the questions of, you know, what is the return on our investment. That question
can be answered by current students. You get a lot more for your dollar when you
come here. When I was looking at colleges to go to, this was definitely on my radar, but
not only for the cost, but as well as all the experiences and resources that they
have to offer. Coastal is one of three South Carolina schools on the Best
College Buys list and the only one of those three that’s a public institution.
I had a lot of options for other places and I knew that Coastal had a good value so
I came here for that reason.
