“Beautiful Spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2013

Tucked away in the middle of Charleston, it was charming. It was just beautiful, and so peaceful. A great "side trip" while exploring Charleston.

“Our daughters Graduation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2013

Very polite staff...the college is nestled right in downtown which gave us time to explore. I wish when she graduated they would have announced that she not only had one degree but two and a minor. They only did for the young male who graduated with an AP. And it would have been a little more appropriate if some of the young women would have worn dresses at an appropriate length instead of just below the buttocks. Otherwise the graduation went over very well and she loved attending the college....minus a professor or two.

“Beautiful, historic campus”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2013

The College of Charleston is becoming an academic institution to be proud of and the campus is lovely. Like the setting of "The Patriot"? Many of those scenes were filmed here. It's that handsome and that old. Worth a stroll through, if nothing else.

“College of Charleston basketball game”

Went to see a basketball game there. The arena is very nice and modern. Seats are really comfortable. Great view of the floor from all areas. Walking distance from the historic district shops and restaurants.

“A truly urban campus with a small college feel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

The College has a gorgeous campus with old live oaks, paving stones and bricks, and the ironwork that makes Charleston what it is.
