Coastal Carolina University's story began in 1954 when the institution was founded by a group of local citizens determined to bring higher education to the region. Although enrollment has grown to more than 9,000 students, Coastal Carolina University maintains that small-college feel while providing the opportunities that distinguish a much-larger university.
We invite you to take a look at Coastal Carolina University and meet our students and faculty. We are a young, growing university whose story is still being written. Come see where YOU fit in.
