Coastal to conduct survey regarding athletic nickname

Coastal Carolina University will conduct an online survey from Nov. 1 to 14 on whether to change its athletic nickname. The results of the two-week survey will be used as an assessment tool for the university.

Coastal's nickname, the Chanticleers, was inspired by the quick-thinking rooster in Chaucer's Canterbury Tales. The Chanticleer was introduced at Coastal in 1966 when the institution was a branch campus of the University of South Carolina, whose athletic teams are known as the Gamecocks. In 1993, Coastal became an independent, public university.
