"You know, after the college world series, we actually hit all of our goals that we wanted to accomplish by the end of this academic year. So we kind of had to sit back down and develop new goals just because we had already surpassed everything," Reser said.

This week is CCU's first week back to school for the fall semester and students, faculty and staff are still buzzing over the win, CCU junior, Jada Murray said. "Yeah, I think it brought a lot of attention to us. People are like, 'wow ,Coastal Carolina is really on the map now'. And now our twitter accounts are blowing up. Everyone is following us and it's really insane."

The school has seen a major increase in it's followers this summer, Reser said. The school's twitter account has gained 2,375 new followers from May 2nd to August 22nd. Their Facebook page has received 12,875 new 'likes' from May 2nd to August 22nd. Instagram followers for the school's account has gone up 4,489 followers from May 2nd to August 22nd.

"We have about 6 different campaigns that we are starting this first week of school and we also have a different social media event that we will hold each month during the fall semester," Reser said.

Something they think will bring in a lot of attention both in person and on social media is the chance for people to get their photos taken with the National Championship Trophy Wednesday, Reser said.

According to the press release, students and others on campus will be invited to to the Student Union Rotunda from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Wednesday. From 6-8 p.m. the trophy will be set up in Springs Brooks Stadium.
