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!!!!!!

The campus buildings are beautiful and worth wandering around. Founded in 1770, there are many historic buildings. Everyone is very friendly and the "modern" world is both part of and around the campus. Cobblestone and spanish moss. What more is there to say?
