The College of Charleston, founded in 1770, is the oldest institution of higher learning in South Carolina and the 13th oldest in the United States. Charleston is a public space- and sea-grant institution located in a historic area of downtown Charleston. The cobbled streets and 18th century architecture have led to the college being named “America’s Most Beautiful College Campus” by Travel + Leisure Magazine. The most popular majors are business administration, biology, and psychology.
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.
