The College of Charleston, founded in 1770, is a public university and is the oldest campus in South Carolina. The university offers 61 undergraduate majors and 78 minors from six schools, plus 24 master's degree programs and 10 graduate-level certificate programs. Located in coastal, downtown Charleston, the campus features brick walkways and offers a 15,000-square-foot fitness facility, two new residence halls, a 5,000-seat athletic facility, and the completely renovated Rita Liddy Hollings Science Center, which has 77 new research facilities, and a modern observatory with star-gazing stations on its roof.
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.

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.
