“Great School, great location”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

My Father and Aunt both went to the College of Charleston back in the dark ages and ended up with very prestigious jobs. I graduated from someplace else, not wanting to live in the same city as my grandparents when I first went to college and got out on my own. I did go to the College of Charleston in my early 30th to take some business classes. The college is in the center of town, unlike my previous college, which was in the wilderness of Virginia. I enjoyed the campus and got some good schooling. Great faculty!

Even if I was not a graduate of C of C I would still recommend paying a visit to its historic grounds.

“Sunday morning walk...”
Reviewed November 4, 2012

I was visiting Charleston and took a walk on campus on a Sunday morning. What an amazing campus. You can't beat the Southern charm, 150 year old buildings, brick walkways and spanish moss. Tons of amazing picture opportunities. Easily walkable from anywhere downtown, or you can hop a trolley. On Sunday morning, the students were all asleep so I felt like I had the entire campus to myself. Beautiful and shouldn't be missed!

“Great Place To Be A Student & A Visitor”
Reviewed October 15, 2012

Spanish moss, 150 year old buildings, brick walkways, NASA-supported Science building, terrific arts programs, progressive professors, amazing history, great location, and students, students, students everywhere. A medium-sized college with an incredibly personalized, small-campus feel.
