We stumbled across the campus as we were taking a walk through the town. It is quaint and beautiful, my husband now wants to teach here. Definitely check it out while in Charleston.

Nice city campus and we saw it on move in day so there was a lot of activity. Kids were very friendly.

It's just amazingly beautiful. It's tiny, but once you get inside the walls you're in a lovely place with old trees and quaint buildings. The schools are housed in old Charleston Single Style houses. It's one of the prettiest college campuses I've ever seen.

Great Oak Trees covered with moss... beautiful campus... take an hour of your visit to the historic district to walk over to the campus... it's well worth it... (I was surprised how nice it was)

What is NOT t like pursuing education in a great city like Charleston. We were privileged to have many students as waiters in the various local restaurants that are providing $$ so these students can pursue education at this interesting and beautiful campus

Can't say what the curriculum is like at the College but it's a wonderful place to walk through and photograph any time of day.

A great place to refresh the spirit on... More
