Associates in the CoBE Institute at Coastal Carolina University spent about three months working on a marketing and operations plan for a multi-national corporation. Those associates presented the results of their work to two executives of Pomì USA, who came to Coastal’s campus from New York.
Doing business consulting with real-world corporations is a hallmark of the CoBE Institute program. It prepares students for what they will face when they enter the workforce.
Students are really excited to be out here interacting with the community and really being a part of the solutions to stop plastic and other pollution.” - Cassie Ratliff, ‘17, Sustainability Coordinator, Sustain Coastal
Around 30 Coastal Carolina University students recently left campus to support the Our Marsh Counts effort in Murrells Inlet. Our Marsh Counts is designed to assist in keeping the marsh clean and healthy. Those involved in the kickoff not only cleaned parts of the inlet but also cataloged the types and quantities of the materials that were collected. Sustain Coastal was the campus organization that led the effort on behalf of CCU. Many of the students who volunteered are pursuing degrees in fields that focus on sustainability and ocean waters.
That's one thing I'm grateful about CCU is how hands-on it is so it would be hands-on with the organism I'm studying in class. Invaluable.
Coastal Carolina University marine science major Josh Bruni is pursuing his dream of becoming a wildlife filmmaker. He is one of a handful of students from around the country to be accepted into the prestigious Master of Fine Arts in Science and Natural History Filmmaking program at Montana State University. Bruni prepared for his chosen career while at CCU by getting out in nature, learning the science, and working in the photography department within University Marketing and Communication.
We're actively trying to create solutions using business and the market what we have to work with. That work, that journey of starting a real estate company; I've leaned on a lot that I learned at Coastal.”
