What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a great school with a lot of potential but there is an overall large miscommunication with faculty and students. With a strong liberal arts concentration on campus, it is easy for social sciences to be completely underestimated or even misidentified. There should be ample opportunities for students to receive the education they are paying too much for, to begin with.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I absolutely love the College of Charleston. The campus is stunning and located in one of the most beautiful cities in the country. The progressive and accepting culture of the College makes me feel included and safe at all times. The professors are stellar and give students huge responsibilities to take control of their own education. They treat us as adults and engage in stimulating conversations in and outside of class. There is plenty to do on and off campus with King Street, Waterfront Park, and the Battery all within a 20 minute walk. There is no better place to study history, as Charleston's is rich and diverse, and I feel immersed in the surrounding city. I love the College and am grateful that I can study in such an incredible city and at such an amazing university.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

With breathtaking views, countless opportunities for adventure, and stretches of shops and fine dining, it is no wonder College of Charleston has won over the hearts of nearly 10,000 undergraduate students. Although the off-campus experiences are always enticing, education also plays a large role in the admiration for the College of Charleston. The small class sizes provide personalized experiences in the classroom to form connections outside of the classroom. Walking to class is never a hassle, as the buildings are close in proximity and the routes are scenic at any time of the year. With Spanish Moss draped over the myriad of oak trees lining the campus, students, faculty, and visitors alike are swept away by the College of Charleston aesthetic and southern charm. Freshmen living on-campus for the first undergraduate year of study are never disappointed with the provided housing. Most of the dorms are well furnished with kitchenettes, sitting areas, and full bathrooms. The dining experience at the College of Charleston is second-to-none, with fresh, new options every day at two dining hall locations, as well as various other fast-food, and healthy dining spots. The diversity of the College of Charleston ranges from food to students, with many different people to meet and perspectives to learn from.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

College of Charleston has a really beautiful campus that has a lot of gorgeous architecture and murals. The student art show in a modern museum showcasing the best of the best of student art. It is certainly worth a visit next time you are in the Downtown Charleston area. The campus life is everything. There is something for everyone. Whether you are a party person or more laid back. Most things are in a 20 minute or less walking distance. There is always something happening on King Street or the college campus every weekend. Even if you do not want to do anything near the school, there are always many, many beaches to go to. You will always be able to find something to do. The atmosphere is very welcoming and warm. I made friends quickly and have been with them since Freshman year. The RAs are helpful and very laid back. The only thing I would say if the on-campus food can be a hit or miss. There are so much art and history in the school as well. You can always learn something new. I have not had any major problems with my professors. Each one of them has had available office hours before or after class. There are so many student resources and outlets available for your use. I love going to college here. It is so much fun and there is always something to do on the weekends. I can happily say the good out weights the bad.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

With me entering my second year at the College of Charleston I would have to say my overall opinion of the college itself is that it's a really chill place to start discovering who you are. I know for me graduating high school and living away from home for the first time was very intimidating but after a few months of living in the Charleston community I discovered lots of new friends and experiences that helped me learn more about who I am as a person and what I want to do with my life. One of the most important things that I learned at CofC being that we have to look out for the people that surround us.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

In all honesty, the College of Charleston is a fine academic institution; once you are well into your major, the class sizes are small, and the professors have office hours at least twice a week, so there is rarely ever a problem regarding communication between students and professors. Where the College's problems lie are in its location and function as a social institution. The College's campus sits in the heart of downtown Charleston, a bustling tourist destination with very little parking availability for the people who need it most: the students. And as a social institution, which all colleges and universities are, the College is lacking in racial diversity within the student and faculty population. Students of color comprise about 20% of the student population, meaning that if you are student of color, you will most likely be the only one in most of your classes. There is also the issue of the racial incidents that continue to happen on campus, especially around Halloween time, with little meaningful consequence for the perpetrators. It can be incredibly frustrating, but with the installation of a new President, there may yet be hope for improvement.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a great school but being that it is in the middle of a city you can expect everything both positive and negative to happen at some point. If you go looking for a party you can always find one but they are not big events that everyone knows about. At night the city gets pretty quiet and the campus is a short walk away from the Cooper River and King Street which has a store for just about everything.
