What Students Are Saying

3.88 Average Rating
Charleston is beautiful along with the campus. The people are friendly and the coursework is tedious, but doable when you give your all and focus. There is never anything not happening at the campus so you can always find something to do.
Haley from Rock Hill, SC
The College of Charleston is well-rounded, beautiful school that rests elegantly on the Atlantic Ocean. Surrounded by delicious food, intelligent professors, and interesting people; there is no better place to attend school. Any student enrolled at the college will tell you of how wondrous and exquisite it is, and how much of an honor it is to attend.
