    College Apps

    Looking to throw a couple apps in colleges where i will be able to surf, and have someone people there to surf with. Does anyone know anything about College of Charleston or UNC Wilmington that could help sway my decision? Or any other recommendations for schools on the east coast, other than Flagler or any others in Florida?

    Try applying to UNF in Jacksonville, FL. The campus is about a 10-15 minute drive from the water, plenty of apartments and rentable homes nearby. They have a variety of education programs too, but the most common major is Business. Decent Engineering and Comp Sci programs too

    I go to uncw. uncw is probably the best surf school on the east coast, but if you can go west, DO IT! uncw is killer though, water is still like 75 degrees here. i picked this place over flagler and cofc because flagler is too small, cofc is too flat and too southern (like, really southern preppy bow tie fratty boys). uncw is very well rounded in academics, babes, waves, warmth, city, and beach. you can buy beer anywhere also. Has a great business program (that i'm in) and a good education and nursing. also we are a world renowned marine biology program

    Hope this doesn't take any wind out of your sails but this is real talk right here: if your parents are paying, don't be a d*ck, stay in state. If you are borrowing, then don't be an idiot, stay in state.

    I don't know where you live but I went to ODU in virginia and it was about 20-25 minutes to vb and an hour and change down to obx.

    Second this! Also will add be sure to major in something where you can actually get a job when you graduate!

    i feel like theres been at least five or six other threads on this same topic. if you search for them you might find some useful info. also don't feel like you have to stay in state just because of price. if your grades are in top notch or if you qualify for financial aid, do some research. You might find some colleges will give you scholarships or grants. Monmouth gives a lot of money for SAT scores and high school grades. Also, apply early.

    yeah seriously, I know too many people who got graduate degrees in stuff like linguistics and are now pissed at the world because they have a pizza route and six figures of student debt. Engineering pays. Computer stuff pays. Medical field pays. Accounting and finance pay. Don't do a liberal art unless you have a trust fund waiting on you. Don't become a teacher unless you REALLY want to teach, because their entry level salaries suck.

    And cheese I agree, by all means, if you get a scholarship go big.

    If engineering or aviation is your thing there is F.I.T. in Melbourne. Very small school but 20 min north of Sebastian Inlet, a few miles from Melbourne beaches...and 45 min south of daytona.

    Just don't let the north swells and 2+ months of spring break festivities land you a ticket back home.
