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

I don't go to college here but on my trip I checked it out. It looks very cool. It's old looking and right in the heart of the old part of the city. Seems like a cool place.
