  • I am researching this school and have visited the campus

    Tour the campus!! Every day that tours are offered (save for rare exceptions), they give you the option to choose your tour guide out of the two well-balanced students provided. My tour guide happily answered all of my questions and told us honestly how her experience has been. I felt like I got to know the school better and gleaned a new perspective on what my life at C of C could be.

    Use your resources that they provide. The college provides you with many resources to not only get a great education, but also to have fun. On the education side, the library is open until 2am every night, and 24/7 during finals week. They also have quiet rooms that you can book for studying. And for fun the college has many opportunities to join clubs along with Greek life. College of Charleston also allows for students to participate in Intramural leagues.
