I was concerned about the way things are run at the campus but, everyone turned out to be really friendly. When I asked what building I needed to go to, people would stop and direct me to these places. There are plenty of resources to help when you needed. The students and staff are all very friendly. I enjoy campus life.
The only thing that I don’t like is the commute. I’m a commuter and it takes me 45 minutes.
Academically, the college is average at best. It isn't as challenging as other colleges. I really enjoyed the social scene and the location though. These things made up for the average classes.
I didn't like the food or the buildings. Many of the buildings would lose air conditioning during the summer and dorms and classes were way too hot.
The College of Charleston is a very beautiful campus and the teaching of some professors can range from either amazing or very poor of which they do not actually care. There are a lot of professors that teach lower-level classes at an advanced teaching level which is not convenient for an incoming freshman but the overall experience is a very well college experience.
The lack of listening to the voices of the students with issues.
I loved the availability of the campus, as well as the setting. Being near the beach and waters growing up, definitely helped me feel at home.
The people are very pompous, and the dorms are riddled with mold.
I loved being in Charleston. It is the prettiest city and there is always something to do. I loved being able to go to the beach whenever I wanted.
There are a lot of northern people from New Jersey and New York. It does not feel like a southern school. There is not really much of a social scene. There are rarely any parties or going out opportunities. There is also no school spirit or sports.
I loved the inclusivity of the campus. Everyone that attends can find something they fit into and make friends easily. The professors truly care for your success and will set aside time to help students when needed.
The only difficult part is having to commute to the campus if one were to live off-campus. This makes one feel as though they are disconnected from the college at times, but it is still manageable if one joined clubs and other extracurriculars to fill in the voids of time.
