College of Charleston Reviews
Review College of Charleston
College of Charleston is small school with a very diverse group of students from all over the United States. Most of my classes were stimulating and rigorous. My professors were engaged and the majority of them were willing to meet with you and discuss questions / topics that were important to me. The campus is a beautiful, historic campus with old oaks dripping with moss. College of Charleston is in downtown Charleston, SC. The city is a tourist oriented city and there are restaurants everywhere and fun events going on constantly. I loved this school and recommend this school to all. You'll get a great balance of academics, new friends from all over the U.S., teachers who care, and an overall great education. I honestly cannot think of any great change to recommend. Certainly, there are a few teachers who are not stellar, but I the majority of the staff is fantastic!
I love the campus so much. It's so beautiful and the people there are amazing. The diversity there is great, I have met so many new people here with great personalities. The campus is directly in the city so you can walk down the street to get a new outfit and some Starbucks, then walk to class with time to spear. Even though you can walk and buy food down the street, I wouldn't pass it up for the food there, the food on the campus is amazing! I wouldn't want to live on any other campus other than College of Charleston! It's fantastic down there! I wish I could have stayed there even longer.
I think your first couple of days at CofC will be the most exciting than anywhere else, why? Well take for example the rich history Charleston has to offer, with Fort Sumter right off the coast, the infamous Battery Park or rather take a haunting trip on a ghost walk. There is so much to do in Charleston, whether it is enjoying the night life, the people, the food, or rather living in now what is considered to be the largest city in the state (by 76 people), Charleston is the place for you!
