Discover the Gulf Coast, A Great Place to Live

Nestled between miles of sugar-white sandy beaches and glistening turquoise waters, CSU’s hometown of Orange Beach could be one of the South’s best kept secrets. In 2015, Gulf Shores and Orange Beach were ranked among the nation’s top vacation spots by Better Homes and Gardens and USA Today. But for locals, it’s like being on vacation year-round.

Nearby communities like Fairhope and Daphne just west of CSU in the Eastern Shore provide a rural, family-oriented feel, full of biking, local fishing and miles of historic walking trails to explore. Those seeking a buzzing city life would thrive in Alabama’s Port City, Mobile or Florida’s westernmost city, Pensacola. Plus, the cost of living as compared to major U.S. cities is second-to-none.

From the friendly staff at your favorite seafood joint to the family-oriented culture at CSU, join our team and you’ll understand the true meaning of Southern hospitality.
