Corpus Christi Colleges and Schools

Most people probably don't think 'beach' when they think of Texas, but that's exactly what Corpus Christi has to offer. This coastal city offers miles of shoreline, opportunities for wind and water sports and the chance to get closer to nature, all while hanging out with your Corpus Christi colleges and schools friends. But it also has a downtown, too, offering the best of both worlds for those who love the beach, but also want to explore culture, music, food, and a city atmosphere.
