What does Coastal Carolina University mean to you?
This summer, we asked this question to our #CCUSocialMedia audience. Linking into the digital world we live in, we sent CCU PopSockets to members of #TEALnation. Participants applied the accessory to their phones and texted us a 280-character response. Although brief, their replies reveal a lot about Chanticleer pride and affinity.
“CCU is more than my alma mater. It’s the school where my siblings and I started our life in the United States. It’s the school where I met my husband, lifelong friends and faculty/staff who are very dear to me. CCU will always be my home.”
“To me, Coastal means family. I stop by #CCU every time I visit Myrtle Beach. Everyone is so nice and caring; it makes CCU feel like home. I work hard so I can one day wear a teal uniform and earn my degree.”
“CCU is home to me. My mommy and daddy both work here, and they decided to start a family! Someday (Aug. 20, 2035 to be exact), I hope to attend my first class at CCU! Oh yeah, I’m already wearing teal on Tuesdays at day care!”
“CCU impacts my past, present and future. It is my second home that provides me with not only an education but friends, family and a lifetime of unforgettable memories. My PopSocket may wear out, but my love for @ccuchanticleers never will.”
“#CCU became my home for four years. I had my challenges and overcame my struggles that led me to graduate top three in my class, while achieving my dream of booking a major role on one of my favorite TV shows. Coastal makes it possible. Proud!”
“CCU is more than what you hear about; it is a true lived experience. The amazing part about the CCU experience is that it does not come with any limitations – all are welcome to experience the true meaning of #TEALnation.”
