One beautiful campus!
Nov. 2019
A wonderfully historic campus. Plenty of attractions and restaurants nearby. It is one of the most beautiful city campuses in USA. My son is scheduled to start here in August, 2020. The school started back in the 1700s. It was the first municipal college in America.

Lucky students!
Feb. 2020
Park your car in the Phillips Street Garage and take a walk around the C of C campus. It's beyond charming. I'd almost go back to college just to walk around this place every day. What lucky students! And, stop by the The Halsey Contemporary Art Museum while you're there. Some mind-bending stuff is on display.

Beautiful campus

The college is close to where we stay so decided to check it out. Campus is beautiful, with tree lined street and cute quaint houses. We also stopped at the college bookstore which is also very nice.

Very pretty and right in the heart of Charleston
Nov. 2019
Some friends recommended seeing the campus so we went on morning and it was really nice. Lovely buildings with big trees everywhere. They were decorating the main square with the Christmas lights and it was very pretty.
