Who is Wally the Turtle?
Wally, the Wall Pond Turtle is CCU's social norms mascot.
What are Social Norms?
Social norms focus on correcting misconceptions about behaviors of Coastal Carolina University students. The goal of the campaign is to empower students to make more informed decisions by providing them with facts, not stereotypes or rumors.
For more information about social norms and other schools that have similar campaigns, check out the National Social Norms Institute.
