“Why would you want to go to college any where else!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 February 2012

My daughter graduated from CofC in 2010 with an excellent education and overall college experience. While we had visited Charleston many times prior to her attending, we had never found this historical beauty.

“Should have stayed longer”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 February 2012

I was on the 5 year program and loved every minute of this place. Fun school, big enough but still with a small school feel, great history and marine bio programs, tons of beautiful women as well.

Toured the campus at night and it is just beautiful. I would recommend walking around and sightseeing. Great opportunity for photos.

“Picture perfect!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 July 2011

We walked through the campus of the College of Charleston several times during our visit to Charleston. What a beautiful campus that showcases the best of southern architecture and charm. Also during our stay we met several students of the College of Charleston who were working in Charleston over the summer. Each student expressed their love of their school and the "Holy City" of Charleston. Take a stroll through this lovely campus and bring your camera!
