    Use your resources that they provide. The college provides you with many resources to not only get a great education, but also to have fun. On the education side, the library is open until 2am every night, and 24/7 during finals week. They also have quiet rooms that you can book for studying. And for fun the college has many opportunities to join clubs along with Greek life. College of Charleston also allows for students to participate in Intramural leagues.
