I completed my Graduate and Undergraduate in CS from the College of Charleston and am still somewhat of an active alumni. A beautiful campus in a beautiful town, and as a Guy, I really love the 10-1 girl to guy ratio.

Such lovely grounds. Very well kept and quite a surprise as we were not expecting it to be so grand. The architecture in Charleston is wonderful and the college buildings did not disappoint.

Always enjoy stopping here. It's a tiny postage stamp size of a school but it literally drips with the old South in scenic beauty. Combining the centuries old brick buildings with the live oaks draped with Spanish moss make for a picturesque stop in lovely Charleston.

We strolled through the campus and enjoyed the lovely trees, old buildings and a place to rest our feet. Plenty of benches and thankfully school was out of session. Lots of eating and shopping nearby.

The College of Charleston is an attraction not to be missed while visiting the treasures of the South. Steeped in history, it is easy to imagine the walled city with this wonderful jewel of education opening it's door to the future. The buildings are beautifully maintained, providing a harmonious blending of old and new. Tradition is in the very breath... More

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our walk around the College of Charleston campus. The large oak trees and historic buildings create a unique campus full of southern charm.

Beautiful historic campus - with the Cistern and Randolph Hall as the focal attractions. The campus is dotted throughout the area and the "College" vibe is evident throughout the area between John St. all the way down to Wentworth.
