    Hey! I'm go to the University of South Carolina (the original USC) and am a South Carolina coastal resident. Most of the best Carolina colleges are actually inland such as USC (2-3 hours depending on the beach), Clemson (5 hours), UNC, and Duke. However, if you want to be along the coast:

    Coastal Carolina in Conway, SC (20 minutes inland from Myrtle Beach)

    several schools in Charleston, SC (College of Charleston (good school, but it is in the bad part of town), Charleston Southern, the Citadel (military college), and I think there is at least one more in charleston.

    I also think there is a UNC-Wilmington in NC.

    Hope this helps.

    P.S. Univesity of South Carolina was named #35 for best value education.

    Friend, if you are choosing a college according to beach access, you are setting yourself up for a big mess, long-term.

    What career are you aiming for? If you don't plan your college time to prepare yourself for that career, then your post-graduation job is likely to be one where you ask "do you want fries with that" unless Daddy is able to give you a mid-level management position in his firm.

    If you don't have a career goal defined for yourself, get your tochus over to a nearby community college and ask them if their career development center will work with you. They have the tools to assess your interests and aptitudes. Then they can advise you about what college programs are needed to prepare you.

    This is NOT the time in your life to screw around worrying about beach time! Get a stable career first, then you can plan your vacations.
