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.

Lovely little campus with pretty buildings and big old trees. Definitely worth strolling through, though the students probably get tired of gawkers.

Fun to stroll through this beautiful and friendly campus. Historical but also felt trendy. Easy to weave from the shopping district into the campus and back again. Food options interesting and close at hand for students and visitors alike.
