CINO Quest

CINO Quest 2018 Registration is now open!

CINO Quest is a weekend long "quest" for first year students in the summer just before they begin their first semester. It is an exciting and engaging weekend of opportunities for you to enjoy as you begin your first semester at Coastal Carolina University. The weekend includes a multitude of activities and events that will be sure to challenge and help you be a leader! You will have the opportunity to meet other students, challenge yourself, learn about Coastal traditions, and much more.

There will be two weekend sessions in July. Each session will be limited to 100 Chanticleers, meaning only a small percentage freshmen class can participate! We want to provide the best experience possible, so register early and reserve your space. This is your first chance to take the path to becoming an active and involved student leader.


July 13 - 15, 2018 (Bronze Weekend) - CLOSED
July 20 - 22, 2018 (Teal Weekend)

The cost to attend a CINO Quest weekend is $150. The cost covers all meals, lodging and activities that take place. This can be paid at the time of registration online and is nonrefundable.

CINO Quest check in begins at 1 p.m. on the Friday of the scheduled weekend. Sessions will begin at 2:30 p.m. Each session will conclude on Sunday with a closing lunch from 1 to 2 p.m. Please keep these times in mind when making travel arrangements.

For more information, please contact Jessica Combess at 843-349-2656 or

Notice that each CINO Quest weekend is directly adjacent to a required summer orientation. Students may attend CINO Quest and orientation back to back. This is the most common way that students choose to attend, but it is not required.
