Randolph Hall is the centerpiece, an historic columned building used in such movies as "The Patriot"; surrounding it are dozens of other historic buildings now used as campus offices and Greek housing....

The College of Charleston is a multi-campused university in and around Charleston, SC that has a lot of history and some very unusual archtecture. I nice place to visit for both the young and young-at-heart!

Old candy colored houses, stately buildings and moss draped oaks make this college campus worthwhile visiting.

My daughter attends the Honors College here and has nothing but high praise although she does have "too much work". I think she does find time to enjoy the party life. Everything is within walking distance except the beaches but there is public transportation. It's also a wonderful place to visit!!!!!!
