The gorgeous campus of this distinguished liberal arts public university has been the backdrop for many movies, and is well worth a visit while in Charleston. Graceful columned buildings, historic homes used as academic buildings, live oak trees hung with Spanish moss over brick walkways, and flowers everywhere.

Great spot to just walk and look. Plenty of shade and some seating to relax. Nice to see an open campus in the middle of town.

This is a nice place for a stroll. Kids were out for the Summer so it was lovely and quite. Lots of squirrels around. Very southern with what looks like houses on the grounds. Very rich feel with the classes donating fountains and sculptures to the college ???? They must have super rich parents......
