My daughter and I walked through the grounds. The building were beautiful and historic. The trees were just coming into bloom, it was shady and cool. We especially liked all the bicycles parked in all the bike racks! So happy to see young people using peddle-power!

If you love the movie the notebook, this was in the movie. My daughter went here and loved it since we live in New York. She got away from the cold winter we have.

Print off campus map before you try and take this journey and find a good parking deck near where you are heading! Bring comfortable shoes!

Visited this college campus with my daughter who is a high school junior. This is her 2nd choice at the moment, but after visiting the campus and doing some self-exploration before taking the guided tour, I think it may quickly move to #1! It's an absolutely gorgeous campus that sits right in the heart of historic Downtown Charleston. Everyone there... More

Visited during break so there weren't many students around. The beauty of this campus is unreal. Its so beautiful its actually ridiculous, I almost started to hate in it in jealousy. Even Andrew Jacksons mother is buried here

The campus is just a block off King St. and is a beautiful walk to enjoy. The live oaks are huge, the buildings from a time past, and the students are warm and friendly. It is just fun to spend some time here watching things going on, and doing a little day dreaming of days past.

Great looking campus and very nice to walk around. Stop at Caviar & Bananas for food, even a muffin, if you get a chance.
