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

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.

There is metered street parking around the campus and a number of parking garages. Parking is not usually a problem.
