Had a pleasant tour of this historical college by a current student who was very encouraging and enthusiastic. She had transferred in from another college so it was nice to get her viewpoint.

It is a gorgeous campus, especially at night. It has true southern charm. We saw it on a ghost tour, which was really interesting and full of history.

I was very surprised about the size of the College of Charleston and how the same historic charm was maintained in their buildings. I wish I would have had more time to explore this.

I love this college. I was an older student and I think this college is incredible. The Professors are so intelligent and willing to help. And as an older student, I needed that. The people attending, at least most, who were younger were so eager to learn, smart and happy to be there. it's a lovely college right in the... More

Eight or so buildings are classic designs from the 1800s. Inner campus is simply beautiful and is surrounded by less interesting architecture. Still, worth a short walk thru.

If you're on a walking tour might as well take a sojourn through the block or two of smaller buildings and houses that comprise part of the campus. Very nicely done with plenty of benches in shady spots to take a load off your feet.

no reason to visit, adjacent to King Street. Yes it is a fun school with some good departments but not a place visitors to Charleston need to visit. They should enhance their art and history museums to entice more visitors. Sure they have lots in archives that should be on display.

Gorgeous campus that is the epitome of "old south" charm. Lots of oaks with Spanish moss and beautiful architecture. A nice place to relax and take a break on one of the benches.
