Would have to share the "Most Beautiful Campus in America" opinion. A unique place to walk and admire the restoration of classic Charleston construction.

While in Charleston over the holidays, we took in the holiday light show at the College of South Carolina. Put us in the festive mood! It was raining so it was not crowded..but we still had fun

Walk the campus during the day and again at night. It is lovely and feels warm and inviting. At night the lighting will welcome you to sit and stay a while.

You must see this campus. It belongs right up there with the best places to study if you want the small liberal arts experience.

We just walked through the campus on a Sunday. Many of the department headquarters are in former, historic homes. Beautiful gardens and trees.

We toured The College 10/12. Beautiful campus, located smack in the middle of downtown historic Charleston, SC. Short walks for students. Mix of older and newer buildings. Large tour group, but plenty of opportunities to ask questions.
