Walking through the trees and greenery make you relaxed. The administrative offices are in old houses and one is more beautiful than the next.

Pretty campus in downtown Charleston. We enjoyed the coffee shops as a break on our walking tour. Two drug stores near campus had reasonably priced souvenirs.

Walking through the campus is a peaceful and calming experience, as this really is a beautiful campus, as advertised on their slogan.
