Come and see for yourself!
Making a campus visit is one of the most important steps in choosing a college. Every college has a look, feel and sense of possibility that are all its own. Coastal Carolina University is no different, so come see for yourself and find out why so many students experience Coastal and know this is the place for them.
We have resumed campus tours. All tour groups will be small and visitors and tour guides will observe social distancing practices, including wearing face coverings.
