3 College Freshman

Campus Food: The food on campus is not horrible but it is not something I would normally choose to eat.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorms at The College of Charleston are not the best in the country, but they are not the worst either. All of the dorms are clean with reasonable space. There is also a great sense of community within the dorm, however you would have more freedom of you got your own place.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: A historic area is always pricier than a small town. The cost of living is still cheaper than a dorm with a breakdown. Distance isn't so bad, most places are about a ten minute walk to classes.

Off-Campus Dining: Living in a medium city, as a tourist destination, there is plenty of options! Many are fairly pricey though.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: It's alright. I do not live on campus so I barely see them

1 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Typically when you apply for a school they give you financial aid options, but as a transfer student I was not given a financial aid package from the school. Many of the scholarships are specifically for freshmen which makes it a hassle for me.

Greek Life: If you're in greek life, then it's great!! If you're not, like me, then that is also ok! There is still so much to do here, and just because you're not in greek life doesn't mean you're isolated! I have some friends in greek life and they have introduced me to people in their frats/sororities and everyone has been nice! No tension or anything like that!

Off-Campus Housing: I live on campus right now, but I have many friends who live off campus and seem to love it! Charleston is a great area to live off campus because the houses are beautiful and you get to experience different areas of the city.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

Most students acknowledge the fact that at the College of Charleston, they’re experiencing something unique and rare. Not only is the city an interesting and fascinating place, but the years students will spend at CofC will be radically different than they would be at most other schools. Many schools are not located in the heart of a city as Charleston is, and many schools do not preserve the old while combining it with the new, the way the College of Charleston strives to. Although CofC may not have a well-known reputation for superior academics or sports, both the latter and the former are among the greatest in the nation, and many students come to care less and less about the acclaim that Charleston receives.

One cannot truly understand the appeal and rarity of attending the College of Charleston until they have been here awhile, and though students do transfer out for various reasons (including simply not being happy as a CofC student), those who do remain here for all of their college years look back on their memories with nothing but contentment and pride. Charleston does its best to encourage its students and residents to enjoy the time they spend here, and students here will never be lacking in opportunity for their career or education goals. Though it may be small and laid-back, the College of Charleston has many different qualities to be proud of and the students themselves have said that Charleston has become their home.
