While an amazing school, just walking the grounds is awesome. The history and the beauty is stunning.

CofC is just a stunningly beautiful campus! Classic old Charleston with the beautiful historic buildings and majestic old oak tress. A great place to stroll or mingle.

Gorgeous campus - great variety of architecture, quirky history and beautiful old fixtures - even in the rain, in December... and on a bicycle taxi.

We took a morning stroll through the campus and enjoyed its beautiful scenery and historic campus. There were so many beautiful buildings that I guarantee I would be late for class if I was a student.

It's an incredibly inviting and charming campus. I went to visit with my daughter who is a junior in high school but even if she wasn't in high school it is still worth stopping in and visiting.

Lots of history. Small but beautiful. We loved the walk and enjoyed the architectures. I could consider sending my daughter to this college if she is interested in art.

We know someone going to this school so we decided to visit while in Charleston. This is the most beautiful university/college I have ever seen. It as nice as most residential areas. Don't miss a visit if you are in Charleston.

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.
