I pay 35,000 a year, out of state to attend the College of Charleston. Is it a bang for my buck? In my opinion, yes it is. If I had not attended College of Charleston, I would probably be commuting to Seton Hall University, which is 18,000 dollars more per year. I do not mind the hefty college fees though. Every semester during finals, the college provides many services to relieve the stress, called The Cougar Countdown. They do everything from moonlit pancake breakfasts to puppies behind the library. The college also has a lot of cool events and opportunities including: endless study abroad options, Georgestock (a live concert in the center of campus), hundreds of clubs, and the list can go on.
