CCU makes ‘Best Oceanside Universities’ list
Coastal Carolina University has been named in the top 50 of the best oceanside colleges and universities in the country in an annual ranking by College Choice.
The College Choice 2016 Rankings of the Best Oceanside Colleges and Universities takes into account several key factors to ensure that students get the best rate of return on their educational investment. In addition to proximity to the ocean, these factors include academic ranking, cost of tuition, total net cost, average financial aid packages and average early-career salary. “The combination of our strong academic focus and our great location has always been a defining element of our identity and our success as an institution,” said CCU Provost Ralph Byington. “From the undergraduate to the graduate levels, we have developed a range of programs that relate meaningfully to our geographic location. More importantly, this united emphasis on community engagement and academic development is something that applies to all our majors and students.”
Other colleges in the Best Oceanside ranking include Texas A&M-Corpus Christi, Hawaii Pacific University, University of South Florida and Palm Beach Atlantic.
