9 more reasons CofC is the best college ever

There are many great  colleges on the East Coast, but CofC is the ultimate best college to attend.

Founded in 1770, The College is the oldest college south of Virginia, and its campus is definitely filled with classic Southern charm.

But in case that isn’t enough, here are nine reasons why College of Charleston is the ultimate best place to get your degree.

1. The beach

Who doesn’t love being able to hit the beach after class on a beautiful day?

Can you do that up North? I think not.


2. Historic charm around every corner

Not only are you on the way to class to learn, but you can learn while you’re on the way to class too.


3. One of  ‘top most beautiful campuses in the world’

The campus is located in the heart of downtown, so it just feels like you’re on vacation all the time.

With Magnolia and Dogwood trees everywhere, plus large Oaks with Spanish Moss, you feel like you’re in a magical forest.


4. Guaranteed fabulous nightlife

Want to dress up to the nines and go to a fancy bar?

We have it.

Want to dress in a flannel and still go out?

We have those bars too.



7. Odd weather = canceled class

When it rains, it pours, so it’s likely your classes will be canceled when downtown floods more than its usual amount.

And if they are not canceled, you can always kayak to class.

I’m not even kidding.


6. Classes for any interest

Want to learn how to do yoga?

Come to CofC.


7. One classy graduation

No graduation caps and gowns. Just all-white, crisp dresses and suits.

It’s so very Southern and so very cool.


8. Off-campus still part of college life

Since the college is located downtown, you won’t miss much by not living on campus.

You can find us socializing pretty much anywhere.


9. On Sundays, we brunch

Did someone say bottomless mimosas? Where else would you want to be for Sunday brunch other than Charleston?
