Our family was in Charleston for some sight seeing this past week, and this college was beautiful. It seemed to be laid out very intelligently, and very clean. A lot of housing withing walking distance and very friendly locals. This seems to be a very good college to tour/go to.

We walked through this gem of a college. The buildings and trees were so breathtaking. It made me wish I was 18 again and could attend college here. What a beautiful setting for a school.

The College of Charleston is a beautiful old campus in the heart of downtown, with King Street shopping and restaurants just around the corner.

Love the college. So nice and picture perfect. Very close to shops, food, and tourist stuff like tours and ghost tours. Great place to take pictures, view the beautiful homes, and stroll along the battery. Very walkable to everything.

Wandering through the campus is like stepping back in time to an idyllic South that never really existed. Felt like I was on the set of "Gone With The Wind."

Great little city, easy to walk and very historic. Loads of B&B's with terrific amenities. Enjoyed many terrific top-shelf restaurants with my son and Uber cabs are available.
