“Great for a Sunset Stroll”
Reviewed January 18, 2013 via mobile

During the week the campus and surrounding areas are very busy, but later on the day, its perfect. You'll know you're on the campus when you see red bricks. The Sistern area is a great place to sit and people watch. The college is full of history and the school has done a great job to preserve and educate that history.

“Charming Campus!”
Reviewed January 5, 2013

The campus is beautiful, historic and absolutely charming. Visiting during holidays, we did not see many students. Take your camera to get some nice pictures.

“Make this part of your tour of Charleston”
Reviewed January 5, 2013

We happened upon the campus while walking the dog. A must see! This should be mandatory for any visit to Charleston. The historic buildings, the homes converted to school buildings and the trees make this a really wonderful setting. Charleston needs to promote this more than it does. What a beautiful greeting card experience.

“Beautiful”
Reviewed December 30, 2012

This is one of a kind college. Sailing as a class, I think so! Painting outside underneath grand oaks, priceless. These students have it made in the low country paradise.
