We just walked through the campus on a Sunday. Many of the department headquarters are in former, historic homes. Beautiful gardens and trees.

What else to say. Stroll around and you’ll get it. There are ample nooks and crannies you can get lost in, more unbelievably beautiful spots than you can imagine. Feels like home, every time.

We toured The College 10/12. Beautiful campus, located smack in the middle of downtown historic Charleston, SC. Short walks for students. Mix of older and newer buildings. Large tour group, but plenty of opportunities to ask questions.

We could only visit a short while but the campus being in the heart of the city makes its beauty even more amazing. Would love to have spent more time there.

When downtown in Charleston, walking around the College of Charleston is special. The huge oak trees and old buildings make it such a special campus.
