You may have seen bits of it in a movie or two, but to appreciate the incredible, distinctive beauty of this college, you have to walk around It almost looks like a Hollywood designed set

We've been on many campuses across the country but have never seen anything as unique and charming as this one! Really lovely. It is worth thirty minutes to stroll through campus.

the campus in the center of charleston is utterly gorgeous during the spring. Not a destination but a pleasant place eto walk around, photograph, and sit on a bench.

Our grand daughter has nothing but good to say about The College of Charleston. What a beautiful town to have such a lovely center of teaching.

We were staying at a hotel at the same end of Charleston as the college and decided to take a walk through the campus. It's a very pretty college campus and definitely worth a half-hour or so of your time.

Trees with hanging moss. Not sure if there is anything else to see at the college. We walked to and from in different directions, not much to see close by.

Most visitors gave a four or five star on CC but there is not much to see. It's a small college occupying one large city block. Most of the department buildings are like a residential house. Nothing special although it is quiet and enjoyable to walk.

I happened on this campus taking a different turn out of my hotel while in Charleston and bay am I glad I did. A gem of a campus, lovely Victorian buildings with all the details, stained glass and turrets. Well manicured grounds dotted with statuary and benches for sitting. Don't miss it.

The historic campus center has lovely architecture: Charleston "single houses" with side piazza, a Victorian mansion complete with stained glass windows & a turret, stucco buildings, and these are all in pastel-y colors. Many trees draped by Spanish moss add to the ambiance.

This college is lovely, went strolling though here at night and you felt like you were on a movie set. Very clean and the buildings are charming.
