Jared's Video

You can think of all the characteristics used to describe someone but perhaps the trait that stands out more than any other is loyalty. Jared Glass, a senior business management student, says that word sums him up best. As he begins his fourth year at Coastal after arriving from Gretna, Va., there isn’t much that Jared wouldn’t do for the friends he has met on this campus.

Jared found out about Coastal by word of mouth and enrolled in hopes of one day becoming a real estate agent. He is close to achieving that dream but there is one major challenge he is devoting a lot of energy toward this semester: passing CBAD 478 (also known as strategic management). A class that every business management student knows will push him or herself, he jokes about its time consuming nature. But in all honesty, Jared will have no problem passing the class and will be holding his diploma in May.

What remains to be seen is whether his graduation day will rival his current favorite moment at Coastal Carolina. Jared enthusiastically told us that the baseball team winning the College World Series was the highlight of his time as a Chant. Whether or not his commencement day will rival the national championship he watched his school win, Jared can tell you that he has enjoyed a terrific experience at CCU.
