What Students Are Saying

3.88 Average Rating
I enjoy my undergraduate classes at CofC. Class sizes are reasonable, and my professors are approachable and helpful. I appreciate the large selection of electives.
Savannah from Mount Pleasant, SC
The College is a great place to open your mind and see the world for all of the wonderful things it has to offer. College of Charleston professors welcome students with open arms and the student body is more than enthusiastic about being a cougar. I would never want to be a student anywhere else.
