4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The safety level on campus is good, there are campus police around at all times. We even have transportation to take you to your dorm if you feel uncomfortable walking by yourself. One of the safety measures that all students are given exposed to in the beginning of the year is a "rape whistle". I feel safe walking alone through campus, but I would recommend walking with others.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I have had both good and bad experiences with classes and professors, but who hasn't. You have to be prepared for the worst and then be able to bounce back from it. Some classes were better than others, but I would say that is based off of your learning preferences.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The career services/center at the College is a great place, they definitely work hard to help you out as much as possible. If there is an employment opportunity available, you will be told about it.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Living on campus is definitely an experience. Some campus housing is better than others but none of it is horrible. If you have personal preferences about how you like to live, I would be sure to make that known in the room selection process. I can definitely say that you get what you paid for for some dorms. The best time to do housing would be right away, especially if you want to have the first choice at where you want to leave.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life at my school is very different depending on the type of Greek life you are looking at. The white greek life at my college is a major thing, almost everyone who is anyone is apart of a fraternity or sorority. While the black greek life is smaller. I would say that the Greeks are pretty welcoming if you are accepting in exchange. There isn't a big separation between this that are Greek and those that aren't. There is Greek housing available for some but not all.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: Athletics is a major aspect of our college. We are known for our winning sports teams, especially our men's basketball team. The student involvement is very much an active part of The College. I would rate the school spirit as one of the best I've seen, there's nothing like a roaring stadium on a game night at the College.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The College is what I consider to be a very unique school. It is the type of place where you have to learn to make the best of your situation. The beautiful scenery and kind, welcoming faces are the best part of my school. Yes, there are some instances where you may feel alone or considering if you chose the right place, but I recommend that you give The College a chance. It has been a truly amazing, and eye-opening experience. I have learn to love the College and met my lifelong friends.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I am so grateful to be at CofC and all the opportunities provided.

5 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I'm not in Greek Life but have heard great things.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Wish CofC had a bigger gym.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: If youre a girl then there is no need to be in a sorority but if youre a guy then you should definitely join a fraternity

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Basketball is probably CofC's best sport. Soccer also has a lot of fans. Other than that its not reallly a huge school sport scene

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Love the classes and the atmosphere. The teachers are hardworking, but use RATEMYPROFESSOR.COM!

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: There are a lot of precautions taken at The College to make sure we are all safe. Maybe even a little too much; I feel as though the signing in process into dorms is way too much.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love everything about the courses and professors here at C of C. It's very flexible and can be molded to fit my lifestyle, which I love.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Housing is just okay. I will say that we have relatively large dorms compared to other schools my friends attend.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I'm not Greek but I have friends who are and it really isn't a huge deal here. It's mainly for making friends and attending the fun events they host.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: C of C just isn't too big on sports but they do have fairly nice facilities!

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love how this school gives you everything. Not only is the school submerged into the historic city of Charleston, but I already feel confident in receiving an education that will keep me well-rounded.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: It's a wonderful community in a beautiful location. If you have a passion, the staff can help you develop that passion.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Safety is one of the top properties at College of Charleston.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The only downside to campus dorms is that the walls are thin and people love to yell in the hallways at 3 in the morning.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Personally, my favorite sport is basketball. The home games were always fun to attend. A lot of people would show up which made the environment fun and enjoyable to be in.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: My freshmen year was great even with all the new challenges I had to face. I made great friends and learned a lot. Overall, my first-year experience was great. Charleston is a great environment to be in. What makes College of Charleston unique, is Charleton; the history and the beautiful landmarks is what makes it a great place.

4 College Student

Overall Experience: As a mature, transfer student, I enrolled at College of Charleston and found the process simple. There is a particular branch of the school (School of Professional Studies) which walked me through the process and introduced me to many tools which I can utilize to gain the most out of my education. Because I am an older student, I cannot speak to the majority of social activities on campus for college age students, but it appears to be a thriving, friendly school where students take pride in their studies and community.

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.
