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 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!
I truly love the College of Charleston. There is an exuberant amount of programs available to students and faculty. Also, there is a plethora of major options. You can easily succeed at this school is you utilize the resources presented in front of you. Every day students receive emails about new and upcoming events and programs at the College. Teachers are also very helpful and friendly. They genuinely want their students to learn and succeed in each of their classes. Continuing, the College of Charleston is exactly in the middle of downtown Charleston. Students are constantly engulfed in culture and history. There is an exponential amount to learn while at the College of Charleston, inside and outside of the classes. Way to go College of Charleston!
