- In the fall of 1963, the Onslow County Board of Education and the Superintendent of Schools, Mr. J. Paul Tyndall, asked the Onslow County Commissioners to purchase 40 acres of property on U.S. Highway 17 for the establishment of an industrial education center. The newly established Onslow Industrial Education Center was a unit of the Lenior County Technical Institute. In 1972, with the dedication of the Hugh A. Ragsdale Building, the Board of Trustees started the relocation of the college to a new campus on Western Boulevard. For several years thereafter, the college operated on a split-campus until relocation was completed in 1978. Located in Jacksonville, North Carolina, home to Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune and Marine Corps Air Station, New River, Coastal recognizes that we serve two very distinct communities - a proud military community, rich with tradition and reverence for our American heritage, and an equally proud civilian community, who remain steadfast and solid amidst constant change.
