We visited on what turned out to be graduation day, so didn't get to see all of the campus, but it's a nice college right off the downtown area of Charleston. Beautiful brick buildings line the campus..nice quad too

This charming, picturesque campus, in the heart of downtown, is a must see. Truly beautiful. It is obvious why a number of movies have been filmed here, especially in the main area, called the Cistern.
