Creating an Academic Plan

During their tenures at Coastal Carolina University, students can generate an academic plan that corresponds with their values, beliefs, interests, and talents. Students are encouraged to design programs that will allow them to become their best future selves. Students work with their academic advisor to design a program aligned with their educational goals, future career paths, and the values they see in their thirty or forty year old selves. While constructing a plan, students should focus on their passions and their strengths and their total person to design a program that will allow growth and refinement in various areas of their lives. There are a variety of ways students can choose the paths that are right for them, and their academic advisors are trained to ask the right questions and provide the right materials to help a student discover his or her destined path. 

Getting Involved

While attending Coastal Carolina University, it is highly recommended that students become involved in more than your academics so that they may excel in every possible area of their person, realizing their fullest potential and gaining the best college experience possible. The benefits for getting involved around campus are that:

  1. Students learn new things about themselves, other people, the campus, and the world.
  2. It is a great resume-builder allowing students to grow personally, as leaders, and they develop soft skills.
  3. Students interpersonal and intrapersonal skills flourish as they connect and mature during their time spent in an organization or club.
  4. Students meet new people outside of their areas of study, establishing life-long relationships and potential networking possibilities.
  5. It allows students to connect to their university, giving them a sense of pride, ownership, and belonging.

CCU has a host of clubs, student organizations, associations, fraternities and sororities.  Students should take this once in a lifetime opportunity to seize the moment, meet new faces, and add value to their life and their degree by joining one of our various organizations.
