College of Charleston. A beautiful, historic campus founded in 1770 and located in the heart of the city! Recently, my nephew was in town, and we stopped in the Admissions office at College of Charleston. I was so impressed with not only the guy that was giving us the information (a student!), but with all the students on their way to classes. Each and every one of them were so helpful. They offered advice, directions, and things we should check out. I truly felt like I was in the “Friendliest City in America” (which Charleston is again this year, for the second time in a row!). The amount of information that they share is wonderful and so helpful when it comes to deciding on WHICH college.
