Chanti-Creed - Coastal Carolina University
In This Section



We strive to create a diverse and caring community that fosters a sense of belonging and inclusion; to maintain a community that challenges individuals to step outside of their comfort zones, be a part of something bigger than one's self, and empower the next generation of Chanticleers.


We strive for honor by demonstrating dignity and respect in all aspects of life. We exemplify these qualities throughout our academic and social pursuits.


We strive to hold ourselves and our community accountable to the CCU values of truth, respect, integrity and excellence. We demonstrate our commitment to accountability in all social and academic affairs by having the courage to speak up for what is right.

New Beginnings

We strive to embrace our college experience as a new beginning; to have courage to be ourselves; and to utilize the opportunities Coastal Carolina provides to become the people we aspire to be.


We strive to preserve Coastal Carolina University's history of engaged learning, innovation, connectedness and collaboration. These traditions are the foundation on which we will thrive.


We strive to succeed in all our endeavors, academically and personally. Our ability to achieve is determined by identifying our purpose, prevailing amid adversity, and making a positive impact.

As a proud CHANT, I strive to instill in myself what it means to be a part of a community that upholds accountability and tradition while honoring others and embracing new beginnings. I strive to uphold this creed to ensure I am not only contributing to my community but also to myself.
