The College has preserved many of the historic homes in Charleston. Departments are housed in these historic homes and the walkways between almost all the buildings are shaded with Live Oaks dripping with Spanish Moss. Beautiful!

Cool campus to walk around. Get lost in some of the pretties renovated houses in Charleston. Plenty of shade to hide from the Charleston summer days.

Surprising gem in Charleston. We walked through the campus and enjoyed the buildings and the vibrancy of the students.

Our son just graduated, begrudgingly, after completing his "5-year" program. The school is set in the middle of downtown which gives the students access to stores and shops, and bars without having to have a car. The campus is steeped in history and that is not lost on the students. The student body is very inclusive, everyone fits in somewhere. I highly recommend this school as long as you're willing to go with the 5-year plan too! Good luck getting you kid to leave any sooner.

This campus has been featured in movies and stops for live broadcast tv shows. It's historic and beautiful and well-mainted. Well worth a visit and lots of fun shops and restaurants nearby.
